April 5. Day 96. In need of an afternoon nap
The park turns 60 this month and despite living in south-east Queensland almost all of my life and having spent a great deal of time on the Gold Coast I had never been to the park - until today. Having an overseas visitor staying with you makes you re-evaluate what you have on your doorstep.
The park was delightful and all the Australian wildlife on show couldn't fail but impress (especially if you are English).
Personally I feel a real affinity with the koala. I mean any creature that grazes all morning and then flakes out in the afternoon gets my vote.
Isn't this little bloke a beauty?
