Koalas look like bears but are not. They are marsupials.
Wombats dig extensive burrow systems with rodent-like front teeth and powerful claws.

We met David and Mary Margaret from SV Leu Cat in Brisbane, had lunch, visited the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, and had dinner before returning by train to Manly. They will leave for Los Angeles the next day. It was a gorgeous day and we were able to see lots of Koalas, Crocodiles, Wombats, Tasmanian Devils, poisonous snakes, and Kangaroos. It was a great outing.

These three days were spent putting items that we want to sell on various websites to advertise them for sale; answering phone calls and showing items to interested parties; determining the best way to get from Brisbane to Sydney to catch our flight home to San Francisco; making reservations for a flight from Brisbane to Sydney; selling our two kiteboards; and researching and making reservations for our Christmas stay in Kauai. We have decided to stay in Manly until November 16, when we return to the US. We have too many valuable items that we need to sell which will require our being available to show them plus we need to be around just in case we can help sell Dream Caper. We are sorry we won't be able to spend time in Sydney this time but 10 years ago we visited Sydney twice on two different trips. We will visit the Gold Coast and Brisbane area, making day trips when we can.
