a veritable ecological paradise

A recent weekend in Canberra became a nature fix for this nature junkie.


45 minutes driving got us to Tidbindilla Sanctuary, a large wetlands area surrounded by bushland.


A fence keeps out predators and provides sanctuary for a range of native animals in a lovely bush environment with walking trails leading through a series of interconnected habitats.


We only had a few hours at Tidbindilla. There is heaps more to see, so this was just an appetizer for me. I hope to return.

  2. Looks like a great place to check out. I sometimes dream about visiting Australia. You have some of the most fantastic places to learn about....including the Outback but I know there is so much more:)

    1. hi Chris, I love the outback, haven't been there since I started blogging, maybe need to do a retrospective post ... I think it's not like anywhere else in the world ...

  3. Your photos show a lovely calm, serene place to visit, for humans as well as the wildlife that is being protected, a wonderful place. Will look forward to more photos when you next visit.

  6. there's something about a landscape with water. My father taught me to enjoy reflections, he was a photographer, after a work-day of civil engineering.
