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.


The trailer mess

The Doc was told a couple weeks ago the camper trailer would not be delivered. Despite paying the deposit 12 months ago, the first trailer was then stolen and now the replacement will not be delivered. The Doc has been been urgently modifying the car and organising a replacement trailer.

The Patrol now has a fridge installed and a couple of other modifications.

The new trailer has been ordered and will be picked up next month, with any luck. The Excellent Venture is back on course.

The Doc is back on the road today. Out to AWC’s Scotia Sanctuary then into South Australia, mostly the Flinders Ranges and Wilapena Pound, perhaps Eyre Peninsula.
