Coombabah Lakelands is a magic Australian bushland with kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and many kinds of birds (some migratory, some local species). All this is just minutes away from a busy city. It is exciting to walk along the many paths and watch the animals, birds and various other creatures come into view.
