This is our day yesterday. Firstly we went to Mt Lofty..... bloody freezing.... but great view even though it was very overcast.
The creature being brave isn't a rat it is a bandicoot. I heard rustling in the bushes and I was very surprised that it decided to come out and investigate us. I just had to try and stop the kids from making sudden moves and that sent him back to the bushes, but he kept coming out and we got heaps of photo's. Don't know if he was hoping for some food, judging by his nose which was almost mole like I assume he eats bugs in the dirt. The crows were just as friendly.
This is at the Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens. We then headed to Waterfall Gully to see if the water was flowing and it was.
