Smoke filled forest BBQ a great success!

BBQ at Daisy Hill Koala ParkElements retirement village is located right next door to the beautiful Daisy Hill Conservation Park. The park itself is actually a combination of state forest, education centre and national park. Its a magnificent part of the world.

If you haven’t visited the park, including the Koala education centre, you really should put it on you “must do” list. The majesty of the environment beckons every time we look over to it. We took extra notice recently.

BBQ at Daisy Hill Koala Park burn offTo our surprise, and for the first time in 10 years, the Qld Parks and Wildlife folk had decided today was the day for a controlled burn off right next to the BBQ areas!! Fortunately the winds were favourable and we witnessed the burn off without too much the smoke.
