real budgies

Hidden in the trees chattering away live thousands of budgerigars on the dry desert fringes.  They always seem so chirpy and happy to be going about their life with a mate.

One of my absolute favourite birds.

the western queensland desert blooms

So many flowers and so much green after a wet winter had the western Queensland desert transformed.  Expecting dry and more hostile conditions we were greeted with a lush environment so different to the one in our minds’ eyes.

a glimpse of Tasmania

Tasmania, a wonderful place to visit, explore and feel the clock wind back in time.

take a seat in Taralga NSW

Sometimes given the condition or location of a seat the best option is maybe to just stand around and take in the ambience of a small country town.  In this case it is Taralga, New South Wales.

joeys are just plain cute

Little critters are usually always cute, and these joeys with their Mum’s at the Blowering Dam in Kosciuszko National Park are true to form.

 

seaton’s farm: a labour of love and necessity

You can still smell the sweat and feel hard work that has gone into the property as you wander around the Seaton Farm.  Farming in the late depression years was challenging.  The Seatons worked the land, built the structures, created dams and these marvellous fences.

This property is a credit to the Seatons and their endurance, courage and tirelessness.

The property is part of the Weddin Mountains National Park (near Grenfell NSW), probably more famous for Ben Hall’s Cave.  The walk to the farm and its surrounds captured my imagination more than the cave.

bundjalung national park

After travelling the  twenty or so kilometres of narrow dirt road you are rewarded with the Black Rocks section of the Bundjalung National Park.  Long expanses of deserted beach, creeks for paddling and exploring, and a diversity of wildlife awaits you.  A noisy sea at night gives way to a warm orange sunrise across the black rocks.
