 Koala in the Dunes Holiday Unit  

If you had of been staying at The Dunes Holiday Unit this weekend you would have been treated to a very special few hours. One of the Port's wild koalas found a tree to his liking in my front yard, climbed up for a bit of a snack and then headed across the road to the neighbours trees a few hours later. I took the time to capture all the action on film. Have a look at some of these pics below! Pics are copyright - if you do want to use them all I ask is you put a decent link back to www.dunesnet.com for me. If you're using them for school or some non commercial project - please email me and I'll email you a few bigger pics.

I stood still as he was coming down the tree and he was close enough to reach out and touch. The claws looked just a little to big and sharp to try though ... That's Eddie and Lorna's place across the road which where the koala ended up - I hear Lorna makes a great sweet and & sour fish so the koala was pretty safe ...
Probably one of the best photos I have taken - I backed off as he was coming down the tree and he just stood there eying the camera for a few seconds. That's my office window you're looking at, right next to the Dunes Holiday Unit. OK, so I had a ladder up the tree next to the koala ...
