Report from Sydney

The little bear from Skagens Bamse Museum is back from his big journey to Oz and has given me some photos to share with you. The birds on the window sill are rainbow lorikeets.

I Sydney boede vi højt oppe
- og der kom smukke papegøjer på besøg

From the window we looked over Hyde Park to St Mary's Cathedral and the Sydney skyline, which included half of the Harbour Bridge and the top of the Opera House. 15 minutes walk away and we were by the water's edge in the Botanic Gardens.

Tim drove us to some viewpoints of this beautiful harbourside city - including over "the coathanger" and to the old military area on Georges Head.

Det var spændende at køre over den berømte bro

The little bear just had to try climbing a gum tree but decided to leave the gum leaves for the koalas. 

Bamsen prøver at efterligne en koala
- men Eucalyptus bladene må de gerne beholde, siger han.
This is my favorite photo - taken in the Botanical Gardens in Canberra. In the background is the tv tower on Black Mountain and the little bear is admiring the beautiful wild flowers called Starbright or Flannel flowers.
