Lone Pine Sanctuary koalas-are they OK?

by schub229

We are so sad to hear of the devastation in Queensland, Brisbane, etc and our prayers go out to everyone affected. We will be visiting Brisbane in early March -weather permitting-and was wondering if the Sanctuary would be open then?

Sadly the area adjoining the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is expected to experience flooding. If this is the case it is unlikely the Santuary will be open along with many other major sites throughout the city. The clean up of the flooded areas is expected to take many weeks, possibly many months.

Yes Lone Pine is right on the banks of the river.

At one time the main way to get there was by ferry...and it seemed a million miles away from the city to me as a young girl.

Wait a week or two and check again. Someone will be able to find out for you. Today is not a good time.

We're scheduled to visit the Sanctuary on March 2nd-a trip I've been looking forward to since I was young in the US and had a koala stuffed animal. Now I'm 70 and may not get back that way again, so we'll pray the Sanctuary escapes a lot of damage and the koalas will not be hurt. Our hearts go out to everyone in these perilous time of flooding.

schub229, because this means so much to you I have tried to find out some further information. Lone Pine Koala Santuary has a Facebook page and posted a message last night thanking everyone for their support and said the koalas are safe and so are all the other animals.

The Sanctuary is located in a flood affected area according to maps provided by the Brisbane Council so they are certain to have been affected in some way. Thankfully the accurate flood prediction models gave staff and no doubt volunteers, enough time to move the koalas to higher ground.

Hopefully the Sanctuary will be open in some capacity when you visit but as the suburbs surrounding it and the CBD of Brisbane were so badly affected and the clean up is expected to take many months there are no guarantees.

Hope this puts your mind at ease. Heidi

Thank you sooo much, swissfondue, for checking up on the Sanctuary. I will go to Facebook before we leave in February to check on them, the koalas, and all the others who are going through this terrible disaster. Our hearts go out to all of them! I do appreciate your help, Heidi. :>)

Travel Tips for Brisbane

Watch for paralysis tics!

by Channelhismojo

Paralysis ticks lurk in even quite short grass in summer. They particularly multiply when it is humid. These ticks will kill a dog in a few days after first paralyzing their back legs and causing them to choke and cough.

After you have been to parks, even city parks you should check kids and pets.

If detected early, in can cost up to $600 for the series of shots which mostly cures your pet. They will take several weeks to get back to normal.

Paralysis ticks are grey, small-fingernail shaped insects that have their legs and mouthpieces all on one end. If they are flat, they will be freshly attached. If engorged with blood, get to a vet. Grab their mouthpiece with fingernails and dig as much out as you can. The poison is in the mouth.

These tics will attach to humans but I have never heard of anyone getting sick.

These ticks differ from brown dog ticks that can also appear in city parks in summer. My dog was covered in about 100 of them after running through unmown grass in a central Ipswich park. I had to physically pick each one off her.

Stop and Smell the Flowers

by cnango

Jeff always likes to take close-up pictures of flowers when we are on vacation. We saw many beautiful and unique Australian flowers in parks, in the bush and even in neighborhoods in the suburbs of Brisbane. My Aussie American friend, Mandy could name them all. I'll have to have her identify the native Australian ones for me. We also have Hibiscus and Bottlebrush in Southern California, so I recognized them. The flower of my hometown, San Clemente is the Bougainvillea so that was also easy to identify. Actually Southern California was a natural desert with mostly cactus, scrub oak and chaparral before we brought in water from the big aqueduct. Now a lot of our trees and plants have been introduced from Australia since they are very compatible with our sunny Mediterranean climate. It was nice to see them looking so lush and healthy in there native environment.

Egg Timers in the Shower????

by pedroswift

A common sight in Brisbane bathrooms these days are little blue 2 minute egg timers with suction-cap to attach to shower walls.
Water is in short supply. There are restrictions on usage. Pressure reducing shower heads and tap outlets are the go.
Households are encouraged to invest in water tanks to collect rain water and to cover swimming pools to reduce evaporation.
Hoses can not be used with town water to put on gardens or to wash automobiles.
Visiting Brisbane?? get with the trend and take a shower of less than 2 minutes!!!!

Ballymore

by ASTIEL

Ballymore Stadium is the name of a rugby union stadium situated in Herston, a suburb of Brisbane, Australia. It is also the home of Queensland Rugby Union, and was the home ground for the Queensland Reds and the Brisbane Strikers Soccer Club. The Queensland Reds have since moved to Suncorp Stadium and the Brisbane Strikers moved to Perry Park.

The QRU set up headquarters at Ballymore in 1966 under a deed of grant from the state government. The first club game played at the new site was a match between Teachers and Wests. The QRU then officially moved in February 1967. In March of the following year Ballymore's grandstand was officially opened. The Eastern Stand was opened on June 21, 1992. The ground exceeded capacity in 1993 when 26,000 squeezed in to watch the Wallabies play South Africa. A year later the first match under lights was played at the ground. Today the grandstand is known as the McLean Stand (named in 1980), and the Eastern stand is known as the Bank of QLD stand.

In 2006 it was announced that there was a new proposal to turn Ballymore into a state-of-the-art training facility for Australian rugby, for teams throughout the Asia-Pacific region. The proposed development would also include a Rugby hall of Fame, and an archive for the preservation of rugby history and memroabilla.

Though the Reds have since moved out of Ballymore, to the Suncorp Stadium, which has double capacity, Ballymore is still the host to many rugby union matches. The Queensland Club rugby final is usually held at the ground, and Queensland XVs and off-season matches for the Reds are also played at Ballymore. The Reds will also play both of their home games during the 2006 Australian Provincial Championship at Ballymore. It is also likely that both of Brisbane's teams in the new national competition being launched in 2006 will play out of Ballymore.

Mt Mee

by stevemt

Mt Mee is an area north west of Brisbane about 1 1/2 hours drive from the CBD

The drive there takes you through some spectacular bush scenery and the views from Mt Mee on a fine day are outstanding.

There is nothing to do there, but there is a good cafe/restaurant there next to the Mt Mee community hall.

You could easily carry on driving and visit the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and see Maleny, Montville and their wonderful views of course :)
