Merembula is a beautiful town surrounded by sea, estuaries and coastal brush. The variety of wildlife is stunning and a feeding station at a local wildlife sanctuary provided some superb photo oppurtunities.
Merry, merry king of the bush
juv Satin Bowerbird - the adults were extremely shy
Spotted Turtle Dove
Another highlight was my 1st wild Echidna found wandering out f the coastal scrub belt behind the apartment Locky was using for the three weeks he was working in Merumbula. A fascinating little momotrene - an egg laying mammal that incubates its egg in a 'pouch' made up of rolls of fat - a bit like its own muffin top.
Invertebrates are also a major part of the Australian experience and aren't always for the faint hearted. This aptly named spider hunting Huntsman gave Amy a fright.
Just to prove your never to young to start apppreicating wildlife here's a photo of Lizzie with her mum stroking a Koala.
