30.06.2018 – Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest, New South Wales

We arrived at Tea Gardens with time for a trip down to the waterfront and the Tea Gardens-Hawks Nest Bridge before sundown.  Near the boat ramp, a couple were cleaning their catch of the day and entertaining a large flock of pelicans.

And then the most amazing sunset.

Over on the Hawks Nest side, a sign to watch out for Koalas on the road running past a reserve, leading away from the bridge.  Having seen a lot of these signs, but not seeing any koalas, we felt that being a reserve, our chances are good in seeing a koala in its natural habitat.  We walked along the edge of the reserve and asked everyone who passed us if they had seen a koala.  No-one had seen any koalas for years there.

Sighting a koala in its natural habitat still to be ticked off the bucket list.
