Thriving Metropolis

Lest you think we are in a grand metropolis …..

Tea Gardens is really just a tiny town nestled into the side of the Myall River and separated from the Pacific ocean by the Singing Bridge and another tinier town.

Population of Tea Gardens is 1372 – of which 355 live in the Retirement Village!! 

We love this sign!! 

Australia is a tad behind in internet hotspots and wifi cafes  -  our hotel – although very nice – does not have internet, hence the pirating of someone's unprotected but very weak wireless signal!

  1. Such pretty names..Singing Bridge, Tea Gardens, and of course, Myall! Good of you to keep on posting in such conditions..how easily I've learnt to take the internet for granted!

  2. Thank you. I have to assume that people have actually hit koalas on the road for them to put this sign (and many others) up. I have only ever seen one koala in the area and it was high up a tree.

  3. It is Snowy! You have to be 55 to buy into the retirement village. There is not a lot to do in the area though if you are not into or able to enjoy water activities. There is no cinema for example. They would have to drive back to Raymond Terrace I think for a movie (about 45 minutes).

  4. Is the koala sign telling us to slow down or for the koalas to slow down? Personally I find it hard to believe a koala could go any slower. And, do the koalas attack other wildlife? The sign could lead one to think that, innit?
