Click to enlarge this pic of the "huge" Goanna.
The goannas just walk right into your campsite to rummage thru the remains in the fireplace.
No matter what time of day you will see many of them crossing the road, sunning, or just making themsleves at home.
At Coolendel you will have many encounters with the not-so-shy wildlife...
You will see massive goannas, wallabies, wombats and peacocks just to name a few.
You can even pat the wombats (not sure if your supposed to), but we did!
Be careful not to disturb the wildlife when arriving back at your tent in the evening, or when waking in the morning.
Is a strange thing - and NOWRA has plenty of it. I speak of the frequency of sightings of Wild Shopping Trolleys. A short drive around the town of Nowra, will result in the sighting of at least 50+ Shopping Trolleys...........far from their dometicated environment of Shopping Malls and Carparks. Many of them enjoy a bathe in the local creeks, ponds and river; while others graze in the local parks and bush reserves that surround the town.
The high population of these species keeps the local Trolley Wranglers extremely busy......as they round up many of them for domestication. However, their work is never done, as no matter how many are returned to their malls - many continue to return to the wild state.
