Our first couple of days were rather spotty, filled with rain. As a big fan of Trip Advisor, I had planned using the tool and had a list of options. One of our first “rainy day” actions was to head up to Passage Peak, the highest point on the island. A 3KM hike in on and off again rain is very do-able when it is 27C out.

The vegetation goes from very lush to dry brown.
We also went to Target Sports, which is a range. I grew up in Alberta shooting. My boys had never shot a gun. They did very well.
And we stopped off at the Wildlife Park to see the koalas. I have never seen or touched a koala. We all took a turn holding “Elvis”. Their fur feels matted and wiry, and his “hug” very soft. Beautiful animal.
As I mentioned it was raining. Here is how a Koala weathers out the rain.
I found this fellow’s eyes piercing. He just stared right at me. I wonder what he was thinking?
As the rain stopped, this fellow came out of his sleep.
And a mother brought out her baby for a swing.
The island does not have a weeks worth of activities but it was good for a few days. Luckily, the sun came out.
