Look out for our wonderful array of wildlife in the region going about their daily business…

Stay around long enough and you may just meet Black Footed Rock Wallabies, Kangaroos, Thorny Devils, Bilbies, Emus, Kookaburras, Wedge-tailed Eagles, Bobtail Lizards, Goulds Monitors, Carpet Python Snakes (non-venomous) and a variety of seabirds.

The Cervantes coastline boasts various sweeping bays with sandy beaches and pristine waters that are often a playground for dolphins and sea lions.

Always keep your camera close at hand…
