I think this is only the second photo sighting of a wild koala on Canberra Nature Map. Apart from a December 2021 sighting from east Queanbeyan, all the others are from the enclosure at Tidbinbilla or the National Zoo & Aquarium.

My companion and I consider ourselves very privileged to have had the experience. I'll add a couple more photos to the sighting record.

Meant to make this significant sighting but must have forgotten. Will do now.
