Along the Dowling Track – Currawinya National Park, Lakes Numalla, Wyara and Kaponyee, The Granites – Part 1

Wednesday, 15th of May 2013
We had a full day to explore the lakes, which were the main reason I wanted to visit Currawinya National Park. On the way out to Lake Numalla we met this Emu family leisurely crossing the road.

Soon afterwards we were confronted with these 3 cows lying on the road. They moved on in a leisurely way – still too fast to catch them lying in front of us.

It was a short walk to the foreshore.

I was expecting to see a lot more birds. There were a few and as we walked along the foreshore we enjoyed the scenery.

Not the best photos – but I enjoyed to watch the birds flying by.

Lots of Pelicans flying above

We returned to the car and drove to the second lake, Lake Wyara which, in contrast to Lake Numalla, is a saltwater lake and apparently attracts different types of birds. The parking area is much further from the lake. All the same we decided to head for the shore. On the way these kangaroos watched us.

I seem to have reached the limit of this post – I can’t insert more photos. Once again I’ll split the post into two.
