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.

Our sightings are now recorded on the national database by Port Stephens Koalas. This […]

This female koala continues to make us believe that she is carrying a joey. In the early days she would fuss over her pouch by licking it. Now, whenever she is spotted she seems to lay back on branches and never does any tree hugging. We are assuming that this is to avoid putting any […]

White cheeked Honeyeaters are out in force at the moment feeding on the Banksia blooms. This chap was one of about four feasting in the Banksia near the Hub in Tilligerry Habitat this week.

One chick did not fly too well and ended up being rescued from the footpath by one of our friends. All should be OK as the bird was going to be looked […]
