Billabong walk

billabong 2On my walk today I thought I would take some pictures of a section of the walk I have been doing recently.

Billabong walkThis section is called The Billabong Walk. Most of you would have heard of a billabong from the song Waltzing Matilda where there is the line: “Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong under the shade of the coolibah tree”

Most of my walk is along footpaths but in this section the pathway is gravel.

There are beautiful plantings along the billabong pathway and many varieties of banksia.

Different varieties of wattle are also blooming at the moment.  I don’t know what the orange flowered creeper is but it is rambling around a pond and looks quite pretty.

Some Waltzing Matilda for your enjoyment!
