We woke up one morning and decided to head for Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary - the first in Australia. It's only about half an hour from home - a real gem just outside of the city.

You can actually take a boat from the city up the river to Lone Pine.
What a beautiful spot! And the koalas were SO gorgeous!
