Sydney Trip June 2011

At this stage our two week holiday was rapidly drawing to a close. It was the last afternoon of our trip and it turned out to be the best weather of the whole time away. The sky was clear and bright, the sun warm on our backs and we even took off our jumpers despite it being mid-winter. For the last activity of our holiday we did the 45 minute Nature Walk near the entrance to Hattah-Kulkyne National Park in NW Victoria.

This short easy walk takes you through a variety of flora types, including mallee (eucalyptus species), native pines (Callitris species) and spinifex ( the low spiky plants shown in the photos above and below. We found a few plants flowering and were able to get several nice photos. The birding was a little slow and I didn’t get any good shots.

After a quick drink and bite to eat we headed off on the last 3 hours of our trip home. At Ouyen we stopped at the nationally famous bakery to buy something to eat along the way, knowing it would be quite late when we arrived home. At Murrayville we stopped briefly to have a cup of tea and enjoy the treats bought at the bakery. We arrived home in the dark, tired yet pleased to be heading off to our own bed again.

    Hi there, I hope you’re well. I’m a graphic design from a design studio called Pop & Pac. The reason for my calling is because I would like to seek permission to use the image above ‘Nature walk in Hattah-Kulkyne National Park, NW Victoria’. I would like to use this image on a wall inside the new Bendigo hospital, as I believe it represents the story that we’re creating about the people of Victoria, in particular the Loddon Mallee region. Could you let me know if this is possible at all and if required, please contact me to discuss any thoughts?

    Many thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you soon. You can contact me at

    Kind regards,
