Here we are a third of the way around the world

We had been spending ages trying to work out the difference between a possum and a wombat, so the best way once and for all to sort this out was to see them, for real. Hence, the visit to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary where they also have 130+ koalas (it's name kind of gives that one away), kangaroos and other native wildlife. Olga leaves tomorrow back to sunny old England, whilst we head up the coast to Hervey Bay from where we hope to visit Fraser Island. Still solid.
