Tuesday's Treasure with Melody

The thing I am treasuring today is SUNSHINE!!!!! and a beautiful place  literally 5 minutes drive from my home. You will have to bare with me as there a lot of photos...I tried to cull them and this is the best I could do. This special place is 'Daisy Hill conservation park and Koala centre'. The forest is right on the edge of suburbia and is part of a wildlife corridor and safe koala habitat region. There are beautiful bush walking tracks, special bridal paths for horses, picnic areas and of course the koala centre. There were only two in residence today 'Euci' who was sound asleep and 'Freckles' who was determined to get her breakfast regardless of onlookers...so gorgeous. The food trees for these koalas grow in abundance in this forest and supports hundred of koalas. You can climb up the tower to get a high top view and try and spot some in the huge stringybarks. Because of yesterdays rain it was closed today...to slippery. This is a very special place for myself and my family having celebrated many birthdays and great cricket matches here when my children were younger and I hope now my grandchildren can enjoy it too. I love knowing it's so close to me.
