Plus they had Koala’s. One of the Rangers brought a Koala’s out for us to have a close-up view and we could pet it low on its back – they are so soft. However we feel so lucky that we saw them in the wild the other week. Many Aussie’s have not seen them in the total wild like we did.

On our way back we went into the city - we drove into the downtown part of the city. We stopped at the St Peter’s Cathedral in downtown for a quick look at this old Gothic Cathedral.

By now it is time for the Haigh’s chocolate factory! Wow was it great chocolate! Aussie’s best! It was the middle of the afternoon when we returned to the house to relax before dinner tonight. We had happy hour on the 5th floor balcony tonight – we have been staying in a 2nd floor condo from where we saw the sun set the other night, but tonight we watched from the 5th floor level. It was another beautiful sunset. Our hosts live at the perfect spot in Adelaide.
Joining us for dinner was the President of the local Rotary Club (the one we visited the other night) and his wife. We had a lovely evening visiting at a Greek restaurant.
