North Stradbroke Island: Day 3
I have often thought of myself as possibly the least observant person in the world. I never had the urge to take up train spotting, but if I had, I imagine I may have gone down as one of the only spotters to not notice a train go by.
Which brings me to our third and final day at North Stradbroke Island. Yes, we were only on the island for three days, but each of those days we got to see some rare wildlife.
If you haven’t yet watched the video from day one, check it out now to see the wild kangaroos.
Then on the video from day two, you will have seen that cute koala bear having a scratch before going back to sleep in the tree by Brown Lake. If you’ve not seen it, watch the koala video here.
In today’s video we move away from cute, furry and cuddly and we are watching the waves for more wonderful wildlife. Find out what we saw…..
For those of you disappointed to miss out on those dolphins (like me), check out this video footage shot about three years ago from exactly the same point……..
And that is the end of “Straddie” week here on BobinOz. From where you are, three videos about our weekend there may have seemed a little over the top. But the point is, and we do this regularly, that a weekend break can seem like a real holiday. Not just in Stradbroke, but many places in Australia.
But Stradbroke was special, it was like getting a glimpse of how Australia would have been 50 or so years ago. No traffic lights, almost no shops, a mix of tarmac and dust track, plenty of natural wildlife all around, empty beaches, a sparse population, just a few spread out houses and no Foxtel digital TV with live coverage of almost all Premier League football matches.
Here’s to progress!
