Kangaroo Island

Yes, we made it, finally we got on a ferry and the two much to short days were absolutely fantastic, what a beautiful island. Even now after the devasting bushfire in Australian summer 2019/2020 which destroyed 96% of the Flinders Chase National Park the environment appears lush and green, Natur is fithing it’s way back into life.

Funny enough we’ve never ever seen so many koalas but so few kangaroos like on this trip…

Drawning our frustration about a second canceled flight back home; seems almost as if we have to stay, horray!

Surprisingly the best espresso we had in three weeks Australia was in this little store
Whatching this cute Echidna has cost us the visit to the Seal Bay which was fine with us, the Echidna is more special for us AND after the penguin parade we had enough of touristic attractions
Gonna at Point Ellen and Markus almost stept on it

Famous Australian roadsignal the Koala Walk which unfortunately isn’t anymore due to the bush fire

The original visiter center is gone, together with the brownie I’ve promised to Markus because the cafe isn’t anymore either. Rebuilding costs seems to be about 54 Million AUD.

Well adapted to the salty envirnnement. The red color of the leaves show the high concentration in salt, once the concentration becomes to high, the respective leave just dies and the healthy plant survives.
Koala with a baby hanging around on our Campground. Anyway, we’ve seen most of the koalas on the campgrounds. Maybe they’ve fighted the fire here more effective to save the buildings and therefore also the trees and the koalas.

  1. Hey Marietta, diese Koalas sind echt süss! 😍 Mir zeigt es übrigens einen Teil der Fotos von diesem Blogeintrag leider nicht an… den Pelikan muss ich mir also leider selber vorstellen, und andere Fotos auch. Ich werde aber brav warten und wieder reinschauen, bestimmt wirst du das beheben wenn du wieder zuhause bist. Wobei der Rückflug ja scheinbar Probleme macht – nimm’s gelassen, aufregen bringt eh nix. Liebe Grüsse, Carolina

    1. Hi, Caro, Oh Mann, der Blog wehrt sich aber mit viel Nachdruck, schon die Fotoreihenfolge wollte nicht…Danke für den Hinweis, ist geflickt☺️. Der 3. Versuch mit dem Rückflug hat tatsächlich geklappt, sind gestern Nachmittag gelandet, leider irgendwie😎. En liebe Gruess, Marietta

  2. Whow – so tolle Bilder wiedermal… diese australischen Viecher sind echt süss… also ich meine die auf den Fotos, denn mir ist schon klar dass da zum Beispiel auch Insekten und Schlangen leben, welche keinen Jö-Faktor, sonder eher Panik-Potential haben.
    Freut mich das es letztendlich mit dem Rückflug geklappt hat – ist ja schon bald Weihnachtsmarkt-Zeit ☺️
    Liebe Grüsse und bis bald 👋
    Carolina
