Docklands Secrets - September 2013

Docklands Secrets - September 2013 Image

Docklands’ own Blinky Bill

Last month ‘Docklands News’ received a tip-off that a koala had made its home in one of the trees along Pearl River Road.

Docklands is no stranger to wild animals. We’ve witnessed a European rat plague and have seen a colony of wild rabbits make Docklands their home.

But a koala? Here in Docklands? It had to be seen to be believed.

Docklands News set off to investigate, examining each and every eucalyptus tree along Pearl River Road.

After a lengthy search, it finally seemed that the mysterious koala had been located, having spotted a koala-like shape in a very tall tree close to the Icehouse.

But further examination (with a telescopic lens), revealed the koala was in fact a stuffed toy.

Is this the mystery koala other Docklanders have spotted or is the real Docklands koala in hiding?

And how did the toy koala get up there in the first place?
