Koala pays a visit to Tanunda home

A neighbour of Tanunda resident John Bachmann is hosting a special visitor which came to visit on February 19.

After being alerted by frantic magpies nesting in the tree, John’s neighbour discovered the koala.

“One of my neighbours spotted this guy over her back fence, they had never seen one in the area before,” Mr Bachmann said.

“The magpies objected loudly as he approached the nest area.”

Mr Bachmann took a few photos of the cute and cuddly visitor.
