Fruit Bats!

Yogi and I have been visiting the Tolga Bat Hospital in the Atherton Tablelands, Tropical North Queensland for many many years, working and becoming fast friends with a wonderful woman named Jenny Maclean.

Lake Eyre 2 – Birdlife and Pelicans in the Outback

Our first activity after getting our campsite nicely setup and cozy, was to take a 2 day aerial flight to see what the flooding looked like from the air, and to look for pelicans. With water from Queensland seeping into the normally dry outback country, the pelicans found rich waterways and feeding grounds. How they know where water in the […]
