I love #running with this awesome group from the #Adelaide #KMDrunclub. Belair National Park has so much to offer. We’re bound to encounter a menagerie of #wildlife. It’s great to run in light again, now that daylight saving has kicked in - not getting lost in the dark could be the reason why I’m the current crown holder of the #strava Kathmandu #BelairLoop ....... but not for long I suspect! 👑 🏃🏻♀️
All Aussies know why we decorate our cycling helmets with cable ties (ok, so not me exactly- I’m the walking type)... magpie breeding season. Does it work If I judge by the beak scratch near my adult kid’s eye- hell no! 🤪😂😂
We are pretty sure this is a Northern brown Bandicoot, but it was missing it's tail.
Have you seen a Bandicoot They are so cute!
Picture yourself surrounded by native wildlife and open natural bushland, nestled in the tranquil Darling Scarp, with views east overlooking John Forrest National Park and north overlooking the Swan Valley and coastal flats. This is the ultimate dream lifestyle!
Another wonderful wombat photo captured by a Night Spotting guest. An amazing experience to see the local wildlife enjoying their nocturnal lifestyle while learning about their habits from our Guides. Departing each night, book online with McDermott's
