The Doc has written some location guides and has deicided to post them to the blog. Here is the first one covering Sugarloaf Point (Seal Rocks) NSW. Guide is here.
Just returned from a Cape York Trip visiting the AWC Sanctuary called Piccaninny Plains. Piccaninny Plains is the name of the pastoral lease if you were wondering. Report and photos here.
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.
Some excitement at the end of the Cape York trip today.
As we landed at Cairns Airport we saw emergency vehicles. We thought they were training, until they followed our Beechcraft Kingair 200 to the hangar.
It turns out the plane had a minor throttle issue and a full emergency was called. 2 fire renders, an emergency vehicle and 2 airport trucks.
Off to Cape York for an AWC event at Piccaninny Plains on Saturday 23 August. Managed to get an invite due to a last minute cancellation.
First stop Cairns, then a light plane to the sanctuary on Sunday Morning.
Arrived safely in Cairns.
This time Arkaroola in the Northern Flinders Ranges. The Report and pictures are here.
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.
