New road trip

Back home preparing for a new road trip next week with a friend.

The Patrol needs to be serviced and the new Stockman Extreme Offroada trailer needs to have a battery system and fridge fitted. Then we are off.

Also going though the Piccaninny Plains photos. Hope to post a report this week. Privileged to see the Palm Cockatoo, spotted cuscus, crocodiles, frogs and other wildlife.

A couple of hours flying over the property in a helicopter was great.

Yellow footed Rock Wallaby

Managed to photograph one if these rare wallabies this morning. Saw a brilliant male last night, but photographed the female today.

Saw an emu with chicks today and yesterday.

On the way back from the waterhole yesterday a baby kangaroo was out of the pouch. It was a special moment as it could hardly stand it was so young. It wobbled about and tried 5 or 6 times to get back into the pouch.

This shot is from Brachina Gorge, Flinders Ranges.


At Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary

Located in the Flinders Ranges, South Australia.

So far visited Scotia, Danggali and Chowilla.

Then old mining ruins, then Gammon Ranges NP.

Managed to get a few nice bird photos the last few days. Red capped Robin tucking into a grasshopper today.

Hope to get yellow footed wallaby while at Arkaroola.

Astronomy tour tonight. 5 hour ridge tour tomorrow morning. Maybe even a helicopter ride.

Lake Frome near Gammon Ranges.
