About a month ago we visited the Australian War Memorial. I had heard it was a huge building with so much displayed within it that it would take days to take it all in. I didn’t think this would be true, but you soon realise the grandeur of the building, as it houses airplanes, model displays, cinematic screens and a vast […]
Everyday at 1.30 the two resident pelicans at Tidibinbilla get fed. This is a great activity to watch. The brolga also gets fed a fish too.
First appearance can be found clicking on this sentence. Driving to work on Monday morning I was lucky again to see a Wedge Tailed Eagle at the side of the road munching on something dead. I stopped as quick as I could. I fumbled around in my bag trying to find my camera, and in […]
Everytime I drive to and from work I see the below turtle roadsign warning drivers that Eastern Longnecked Turtles may be crossing the road. When I see this sign I always imagine the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the foreground, hence my creation above.

Last weekend was exciting at Tidbinbilla as two new Koalas move in to the Eucalaypt Forest. They are on view for a month before being fully released into the enclosure – so if you are in Canberra, they are definately worth checking out!

The dance consisted of him running around stomping his feet, stretching his wings out repeatedly, whilst all accompanied by his vocal “BRRRRAPK” sound. […]
This is my 100th blog post, and what a cute post it is! At the weekend, Hazel and I had a trip to Sydney. Returning back to our hotel on Saturday evening we came across a tiny Ringtail Possum joey waddling around the hotels entrance. Unfortunately we weren’t the only ones who had our eyes […]
