Not neonatology : trip to the antipodes, week 8. Noosa

North of Sydney on the east coast on the Sunshine Coast of Australia is a town called Noosa. Noosa is a warm beautiful place to have a vacation, the town to my taste rather artificial, but it had the great advantage of a high-quality photography store. So replacing my, now clearly dead, camera was not too much of a hardship, except to my wallet.

Laughing Kookaburra

The morning after our arrival in Noosa (and my trip to the camera store) we visited the Farmers’ market, where Annie had a mango salad which she still claims is one of the best things she has ever eaten, and where I saw my first Kookaburra!

Noosa, even though it is rather a tourist trap, is also very beautiful, and one of the most memorable walks of our trip was a hike through the Noosa national park.

Rainbow Lorikeet

Rainbow Lorikeets like this one are everywhere, and early in the morning there was frequently a flock of them passing our house.

We saw our first Koala, in a tree in the Noosa park, and many different birds, including this honeyeater which is known as a friarbird. 1D8A0177
