Koala is not a Bear

We drive past signs like these often


But you never actually see any Koalas… but coming back from the beach yesterday, right exactly next to this sign, we saw a koala crossing the road! (Actually, if you look very, very closely at this photo, the koala is visible in the tree behind the sign)

Quickly pulled over off the road and grabbed the camera, Littletree was ecstatic!


Glad to see it safely cross the road, it then scampered into some bushes and then we watched as it climbed up a gum tree.


Lucky it wasn’t a drop bear! And so exciting to see Koalas – the last place we lived there were lots of them around the house making a racket at night, but here they aren’t nearby.

Here’s a short video:
