Coolumboola Bush CampSeptember 6, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C
A basic bush camp, very dry. It has a deep gully and we went for a nice bush walk!
A straw necked ibis!
We are on our way home!
We are not stopping for long at most places as they are very small and nowhere to camp. We have reached Moura which is a coal mining town and saw this beautifully painted water tower ! You need to enlarge them to see the Galah clearly. It was difficult to photograph.Read more
We had started calling it the Great Crested Hoax!!
Friends had seen the Great Crested Grebe at Theresa Creek Dam! So we walked for miles around the dam for 3 days, only to see it in the late afternoon of our last day just down from where we were camping!!
Our patience had been rewarded!Read more
A great place stay. Nadine is a great cook so we had the Sunday roast beef and the following night curry!
I saw a Pale headed parrot which has a red rump!
They have 3 dams and a bore so are drought proof.
Here are some photos from our time there.Read more
This place is north of Cook Town. A bush camp by the sea. Run by aboriginal people.
Idyllic with white sands, palm trees and ferns.
The tide goes out a very long way! Luckily, because it is very shallow, the crocodiles are 3 Ks away and are not a problem!!Read more
