Finding a Koala in the wild in Australia is not as difficult as you might think. They are nocturnal and sleep through most of the day so it is a matter of finding a eucalyptus grove away from the city. Start walking around looking about 10-15′ above the ground. They are rather large and I was usually able to find them.
I golfed here 2 or 3 times a year. Some times it required shooing the kangaroos off the greens with a putter. They were rather friendly but they can cause bodily damage so caution was always in the back of your mind. It really, in hindsight, was very surreal.
