The Mitchell River Walk


Recently we did the Mitchell River walk as neither of us had done our usual early morning walk.  We drove into Bairnsdale and did the walk that included the part that is used for the Park Run.  It was a beautiful day with just a light wind to make sure that we didn’t get too hot.  The actual walk is over the bridge and down the other side of the river but we kept on the same side and walked a bit further along the river.

We were surprised by the amount of wildlife we encountered on the track.  We particularly enjoyed seeing the smaller bird life as we seem to generally only get the larger birds in our garden.  We saw many blue wrens as there was dense bush for them to take cover from larger birds.

This is the first water dragon we encountered.

Look at the length of that tail.  The dragon was not at all worried about us.

Further along the track we came to the bat colony which I have posted about previously.  The flying foxes are still there in large numbers.

On the return part of our walk we came across another dragon, not the same one!
