Noosa Head

So this past Friday Julie, Priscilla, and I drove about 1.5 hours north to Noosa Head. Noosa Head is a national park that is known to have a few Koalas hanging around.  Theyre pretty rare and hard to spot, so our mission was to find one!

We rented a car early that morning and after figuring out why the car wouldnt start (we were in the wrong car, ha) we were off.

Basically there are a few trails at the park and you hike along them and see what there is to see. We hiked for almost four hours and saw………

Koala!

Koala!

He was just chilling up in the tree sleeping. Didn’t even crack an eye lid at us. Here are a lot more pics:

It was a nice trip and the beaches were fantastic. The water was pretty cold, but it was crystal clear and nice and blue.  Best of all the place was practically deserted. While there we saw a pod of dolphins right off the shore, the koala, two lizards fighting, and even some kangaroos on the drive home.

Speaking of which, i drove home and it was my first “wrong side of the road” experience. It was pretty bizarre and even at the end of the 1.5 hour drive home, I was having trouble staying in my lane. You’re so used to yourself being in the left side of the car and thus the left side of the lane.. So when swapped you want to drift off left out of your lane.  Its a lot harder than it sounds!

  1. I think you just uploaded the thumbnails. Or WP isn’t configured right, or something. In any case, the pictures are tiny and I can’t see them!

  2. Yeh, you’re right. There seems to be some gallery code tweaking on wordpress’ end and its mixing a lot of ppl up. I’ll try to fix it.
