August sees a lot of native flowers in the Habitat in full bloom. A walk around the trails is very rewarding. The golden wattle is extensive in certain areas and particularly vibrant in colour.

It is not only humans that get knocked around by magpies in the nesting season. On a recent walk around the Tilligerry Habitat we found a koala had settled in a tree a bit too close to where a butcherbird was building a nest. He came under attack from a bird who typically are very […]
With the shortest day only just behind us you would think that there would not be too many plants and trees in bloom but that is far from the case.
Nights draw in and the cooler, fresher days are welcome. A good amount of rain this month has helped the flora whether it is in the process of flowering or dormant. We are seeing the first flush of Flannel flowers for which Tanilba Bay is named. It is the “place of white flowers” in the […]
Many thanks to Charlie Bell, our resident expert botanist who took most of these pictures of what is in bloom in this month of April.

With the heatwave still continuing throughout NSW, as I write Moree is in it’s 41st consecutive day of 35 degree temperatures. This koala struggles to get comfortable in his tree. We are putting out strategically placed ice cream containers of water for the koalas. Every little helps.
Koalas are not social animals, so it was great to see four in the Habitat today. A male and a female were in the same tree in fact. Pictured are three of the four koalas that we were able to snap. The close up shot is of a male. Males can be recognised by having less […]
