Dark day on the bay and koala feeding time

Cave in the Lady Bay marine park

It’s easy as a born and bred Australian to take it for granted that we have amazing coastal areas and animals unlike anywhere else in the world. So it helps to play tourist sometimes in your own backyard and check out the land and marine parks for some native wildlife spotting.

Unfortunately I forgot my camera on this day so couldn’t get a decent snap of the first penguins we’ve seen arrive at Middle Island this season or the surfing seal who hangs around for the arrival of the tuna boats. Here’s a few mobile phone pics from the day anyway.

Lady Bay is in town near the breakwater and regularly hosts penguins, seals, large stingrays and shearwaters. The nearby Tower Hill nature reserve I’ve mentioned before is home and/or a feeding ground for kangaroos, emus, koalas and a variety of birds, possums and reptiles.
