Reporting in from the bush

Nearly back to civilisation so having a go at sending a Blog- no luck yesterday as the internet connection was poor. Yesterday we spent a marvellous day driving for over 2 hours across the breadth of the Strzelecki Ranges on an unsealed road. Many trees down from the winds the week before but thankfully all cleared away otherwise we would have had to back all the way back to Fish Creek where we were staying! Sharing with you just a sample of what we have seen in Mother Nature’s Gallery.
Autumn colours on the way to the Tarra-Bulga National Park.
Reminded of the magnificence of our towering gums.
The English made it to this corner! And way beyond as we know!
Ticking off the wild life sighted. We did see some wallabies and a deer along the road but no good photos. But the company of a cheeky rosella who dropped in for a picnic lunch was enjoyed for a brief moment as he had no intention of leaving!
Setting off on a walk through the Tarra-Bulga National Park we managed to see a Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo. The Hero Image today is a group of these cockatoos taken by my friend Jane.
And some very pretty tree ferns.

on a swing bridge. Our first sighting of a kangaroo.
Yes, a lyrebird- two in fact! We think they were juvenile female Superb Lyrebirds.
Stunning scenery made for a perfect day.
Today we left Fish Creek where we had been staying at the Pub.
Heading for Wilsons Promontory we were thwarted by the overcast weather so decided to do another nature walk and give The Prom a miss today. To our delight two emus crossed our path on the side of the road.
And we saw several kangaroos on the walk.
So tame, as you can see as we set about getting to know each other.
Oh I forgot about seeing a wombat. Here he is!
Great trip. We have collected wonderful information about the local artists which you will hear about in the blog over the next few weeks. Tonight we are luxuriating in comfort at a resort before heading back to reality tomorrow.
