On June 19th some of the family members wanted to go visit downtown Brisbane. My wife and I decided instead to visit the Brisbane Koala Bushlands on the south side of Brisbane. We spent a pleasant day there, too, though we did not see any Koalas.
The Bushlands are a network of natural areas set aside for the protection of native fauna and flora. They are easily accessible and laced with easily hiked trails. We did two trails, the Stockyard Creek Circuit and the Horse Trail, a total of about 7 km.
The day was sunny and pleasantly warm, we saw a number of new birds and one Wallaby with a baby whose picture we missed. Mostly we enjoyed the opportunity to be out walking and to see the unusual trees and shrubs, though very few were in bloom.
