    Impossible to go to Paynesville without crossing the 100 metres of water that made Raymond Island an island! The ferry is free for pedestrians and cyclists and rotates every ten minutes. Careful we don't find rental bikes on the island... Once arrived at dock, cross the road (attention priority to cars!) and then under a green wooden shelter where guides are available in self-service (photo), you can put $ 2 in the box... funds feed a koala welfare association. You follow the path signposted to koalas hunt! It's a fun and peaceful walk between the eucalyptus which lasts an hour twenty/thirty... regularly, you are touched by multicolored parrots! Children are amazed to discover hairballs, generally pelotonnées and asleep against the trunks. At the end of walk, we left the trail to reach the coastline. We follow him on a trail of wood until the pier admiring pelicans, Black Swans and cormorants. Very nice day

    Delighted to see 12 koalas comfortable in their trees on this gorgeous sunny winter day. Lots of birds around also. Easy to follow the koala walk around the island.  more »
