In January 2013 the Warrumbungles was devastated by severe bush fires. The landscape was in tatters. Visiting there in July 2013 was sad indeed, although there were signs of recovery as this earlier post shows.
In going to the Warrumbungles in July this year there was indeed a changing, growing post fire landscape. Sadly it will never be the same as before the fires. One thing which is noticeable two years on is the quiet. There are a few birds singing their way through the day, but not as many as you would expect in this once diverse landscape.
Nevertheless the Warrumbungles are not going to give up!

At Serendipity we have been carefully restoring the property back to nature. We recently had a release of a gorgeous blond brushtail possum at Serendipity to enjoy some of our hard work so far.
She was very keen to inspect her new abode from the safety of her supplied nesting box from Wilvos here on the Sunshine Coast.

Maybe he/she thought the herb garden was a herpetarium! Obviously good hunting grounds for small marsupials has seen this red belly snake (pseudechis porphyriacus) return on several occasions to seek out its prey on warmer summer days here at Serendipity. Oh well, not all critters in a wildlife sanctuary are human friendly!
Pretty much ignoring me while I took the photos, except towards the end, when it decided it needed to show a bit more size in the form of its cobra pose.

While places advertise wildlife sightings, not all of them live up to the expectation. Eungella National Park, west of Mackay in North Queensland, did not disappoint. Sightings of the platpus in the late afternoon and early morning were guaranteed. In fact for the more patient watcher there were several platypus going about their daily routines at any one time. What a treat and what is more, no difficult tracks and trails to get there!
