Lexis English Noosa students took advantage of a perfect summer day with a walk in the Noosa National Park to spot some Koalas and Dolphins.
Thanks to the local bus service for providing free buses in the festive season. The ride over the hill gave the students a lot more time to explore! They had a quick stop for a Koala lesson at First Point near Noosa Main Beach where Cindy the activity coordinator explained to the students how to spot a Koala and what trees to look out for. Tourists and locals watched on as 30 people slowly walked up the boardwalk to the national park with their eyes to the sky. They arrived at the national park with no Koala in sight as yet. After a chat with the park rangers who informed them that they had not seen a Koala all day either, the students set out to the ‘Koala hot zone’ at the back of Tea Tree Bay. As one student said “The Koalas must be out surfing today”. With thirty sets of eyes looking around, there was still no Koala to be found! However some students did see a pod of Dolphins having a play as they made their way back to main beach for a swim. Hopefully they will spot a Koala on their next visit to the national park.
