Cohunu Koala Park is a wildlife sanctuary on 14 ha (35 acres) of bushland at Byford, near Perth, Western Australia.
It features not only koalas, but also dingoes, kangaroos, emus, wallabies, eagles, wombats, echidnas, black swans, cockatoos, and lifelike replicas of dinosaurs.
The park was established by the Sorbello family as Cohuna Wildlife Park at the former East Martin site in 1972-1973 (although may have existed on a previous site since 1969). The park’s koala colony was established in 1982 at Mills Park Road in Gosnells, with four koalas from South Australia. In 2005, the park was moved to Nettleton Road, Byford. Its koala colony now has over 25 koalas.
Between 10 am and 4 pm daily, visitors to the park may be photographed cuddling a koala, at an additional charge. Visitors are also permitted to touch and hand feed various other park animals.
A miniature railway built by volunteers runs around the park; it operates on most weekends and public holidays.
This little guy has been visiting my backyard for quite a while now, I have a water feature that he rather enjoys every night.
The motorbike frog is a frog well known in Southwest Australia. It is a ground-dwelling tree frog of the family Hylidae, one of only three species of hylids occurring in that region. Its common name comes from the male frog’s mating call, which sounds similar to a motorbike changing up through gears; it is also known as Moore’s frog, the western bell frog, western green and golden bell frog, and western green tree frog.

Whilst on a long week end trip to Busselton, Western Australia, recently, I was lucky to be able to spend some time on a local beach and it just happened to be a very popular place to take your dog.
Whilst holidaying in Bali earlier this year, I came across some beautiful painting for sale, the colours were amazing, so I couldn’t resist in capturing a few photos of this wonderful artwork.
