Brimbin Forest is a real place and is a huge nature reserve and part of it is actually at the end of my road where I live. Brimbin is an Aboriginal name but I haven't found out what it means yet. All I know is that places like Brimbin Forest were used by the Biripi people to collect bush tucker and for cultural events. A lot of native animals live in the reserve but you don't get to see too many as most of them are nocturnal and it is also supposed to be a great habitat for Koalas but I haven't seen one yet.
I've been told that if you see a pile of poo at the bottom of a certain gum tree then to look up and you might see a Koala. I see a variety of different birds in the area and one particularly spectacular bird that I do see very often is the Yellow Cheeked Black Cockatoo.
