I’ve written before about the wildlife on Hamilton Island and the gorgeous wallabies that visit our house. Watching them from my balcony is one of my favourite things to do. The family has a couple of favourite sunbathing spots in the bush land on the hill beneath the house, where mum usually snoozes while Jnr plays in the scrub.

One of them got a little lost yesterday though, because I looked out my kitchen window and saw Mama wallaby looking in. I’m not sure who got the bigger fright, her or me, but she took off in a heck of a hurry!
