Saltbush country in the Flinders Ranges
with plenty of emus wandering around
live, or metal cut-outs as here in the Port Augusta Dry-land
Botanical Gardens with a live Gould's Goanna strolling by
some instructive information about saltbush and it's
relationship with the Emu
berries I picked in the wild not in the gardens and since it was a
hot day, they were very refreshing
revegetation at the gardens with the sort of sensible bush gear
we wear here, particularly the fly netting over the head
to stop us swallowing too many bush-flies and protect eyes
and nose from them as they not only bite but mainly suck the
moisture from your eyes leaving them irritated and it is not at
all pleasant to breathe them into your lungs.
Even with the dry, the heat and the flies, we thoroughly enjoy the bush.
