2/07/2016 – Camping at Osprey Bay
Yardie Creek flows between the spectacular sheer cliffs, known as Yardie Creek Gorge.
Looking out towards the river mouth of Yardie Creek. Centuries of erosion have formed a spectacular multi-coloured gorge. Hidden within the safety of the gorge walls is a colony of black-footed rock wallabies. These timid creatures seek shelter on ledges along the gorge walls resting during daylight hours,coming out to feed in the cool of the night.
Looking upriver towards the red rock cliffs.
We saw the rare black-footed wallaby, euros and red kangaroos, and there was also an amazing amount of bird life including some Ospreys living in the cliffs.
If you look really carefully, you can see the yellow footed wallabies perched around the place, we could just see them moving around, but they do not show up very well. (No telephoto lens unfortunately).
