Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at
Have fun in the sun for the sake of koalas
Magnetic Island Koala Hospital, located in Horseshoe Bay, was created for the rescue and rehabilitation of injured, sick and orphaned Koalas on Magnetic Island and has been operating since 2000. It is totally reliant on donations. You can read more here.

Estimates vary, but it is believed that there are about 500 Koalas on the island. It has one of the largest colonies living in the wild, particularly since the 2020 national bushfires.

On Saturday, 13th of August, a fundraising event to assist the Koala Hospital will be held at Sandi's Restaurant and Bar, 7 Pacific Drive, Magnetic Island, a popular venue popular with residents, which specialises in locally caught seafood. Between 1pm and 7pm jazz musicians, Sandra Beynon ( Brisbane vocalist), and Sean Mullen (guitar), as well as special guests, will be performing for the cost of a polymer note donation at the door.
