Just back from the Simpson and have a couple of questions for you intrepid travellers.
1. How did the Koala get to the 'Lone' gum tree?
2. What will happen to him when he eats all the leaves off the Coolibah?
3. Who gave him the can of Coke?
Rather a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy!

DB,

Haven't been right across the Simpson yet, so was unaware that the koala was "in residence". LOL

Not much fear of him eating all the leaves on the tree. The coke will rot his teeth, and he'll have to rely on handouts from friendly travellers.

Wonder if there's some child somewhere, missing their koala, while their father/uncle/brother is concealing a mischievous grin?

Sounds like typical Aussie humour,

Bob.

There has been a Koala in the lone gum for quite a few years now, some years he's missing but some one usually "returns" him ;-))))

Hi MJ we're in Anchorage Alaska, all going ok but very wet so we're heading back to the Yukon as the weather isn't going to improve here in the next week or so as the fronts are stacking up in the Pacific and then dumping heaps of rain on the Alaskan south coast. South is flooded and some highways cut so will leave the bottom of Alaska till next time. Outback Al is in a motel room as it was too wet to put his tent up.

I see that he isn't such a Lone Gum anymore. He has a couple of young mates residing with him. They all looked in good nick as well.

Phil

And you should see him in this one:

Like this one ...



He was very small, so I guess he would not eat much. Guess where he was..

Lone Gum Tree Island, plenty of water for the Koala to drink.



Only my wife would had Gumboots in the Simpson.
