Parry's Lagoon.

A few weekends ago we took a day trip to a place 90kms away called Parry's Lagoon. It is a Nature Reserve of 36 000 (yes, thirty six thousand!) hectares and is listed by Wetland of International Importance, for the feeding and breeding grounds for many birds.

We stopped at Parry Creek Farm for some lunch and the girls had a swim in their pool. Daz and I sat poolside with our mango smoothie and just watched them splash and got to chat in peace for a few rare minutes. They have a tree top walkway around one of the lagoons which leads to private little cabins you can rent out. What a view from your window!

Massive boab tree's in their garden!

Then we drove down to Mambi Island, which isn't really an island. It is a notorious spot for saltwater crocodiles, I am yet to see one in the wild. Here are the girls, Milly: "Is that a croc Grace?"

Grace: "No Matilda, that is a bird!"

And a little muddy water crossing on the way home.

Getting the tyres wet just for fun! And that was a nice 4 hour day trip out of town for the day.


  1. That looks like a beautiful spot. Great photos. And dear Grace and Milly - so sweet. Give them a hug from me.
