This album has photos taken from The Sanctuary, an enclosed area which is primarily for Australian Bird life. They are free to fly to and from, but the fences keep out any possibly predators and feral animals.

A Brolga! was pretty excited, have not seen one before
Masked Lapwing on a scrap of island
Juvenile Black Swan, not yet into adult feathers
Who can? Pelican!
We wondered why the pelican swan with slightly raised wings and wondered if it was to help keep cool
Pelican is so neat
At the embankment

Alas the pelican went behind from bushes - saving you further photos this time around
Across the water landscape views
Was not sure how to try to get the Emu to stand out a bit more, practice!
Tall bird with long legs
emu eating hay
ducks and swans
Not easily found, rarely seen... know what this is?
Flying duck, much easier to cope with than flying pigs
Have you guessed yet? A Platypus! We saw two of them, which was really special and rather astonishing
tiny platypus :D
I think this photo came out best, but they are so hard to see that I posted all of the photos I took that sort of made sense/focus
Pelican having a stretch
I like to think this duck is laughing as it lands in the water
Profile of a Brolga
More of the Brolga
Oh guess what? Brolga
Tall water bird, stork-like legs... alas I could not lean over the railing to the protected area enough to get a full body shot.
