Darwin Australia - Corroboree Billabong
After our eye opening crocodile experience at Fogg Dam, we headed down the road and pulled into Corroboree Roadhouse Tavern and Holiday Park. Sounded good to us and we were hoping for a bit of 'true' Australia. Well, the old guy at the tavern bar when we checked in for the night was exactly who we were hoping to see! Gnarly, weathered, a bit of the bush still on him- in several ways, and quick with a "G'day mates"! We are really enjoying this part of the country!
|The boat/structure on the left is a viewing platform. We are on a boat similar to the one tied to it. One can rent the houseboat in the background for overnight - Next time for sure!|
Tony was our guide for the night and kept us all entertained on the short drive out there; we saw Wallaby's, birds and learned about local info on flora, fauna and lore.
|Can you spot the croc in this dusk photo?|
|Here's a bit of help.|
|The Rainbow Bee-eater|
|A pair of Whistling Hawks on their nest|
|the regal Sea Eagle|
|And the Black Necked Stork, or previously known as the Jabiru! This guy stands about 3 1/2 feet tall!|
According to Tony, this guy had probably just fed and was really happy just chilling. When there's legs are back like his left one, it means they are really relaxed and would rather we just went away!
And then the sunset begins.
G'd night mates.
