White-necked Heron

Despite some welcome showers in the past week the wetlands-dam is now rapidly drying out, to the delight of many water-birds.  This White-necked Heron was lunching on tadpoles in the shallow water today (and we really hope they're cane-toad tadpoles!) - with the neck-markings it looks like a juvenile.

Dinner!


Our guests receive a daily complimentary breakfast basket, delivered to their bungalows each afternoon, but if they haven't brought any food supplies with them we have a small menu of self-cook meals.  This is a special tray I made up for folks celebrating a special anniversary - delicious wild-caught Barramundi fish (it would have to be one of the best-tasting fish in the world!), home-grown bush-lemon, mixed salad, semi-cooked jacket potatoes, my home-made carrot cake, plus a bottle of Wine Men of Gotham chardonnay.  (Total cost for two people AU$52)
