We belong to the local U3A (University of the Third Age) Camera Club and this week we went photo hunting in Daisy Hill Forest. We are so lucky that this forest is only a 15 minute walk from home or a 3 min drive.
There are many hiking tracks through the forest but we chose an easy board walk through the Melaleuca swamp. Melaleuca trees sometimes called paper bark trees like having their roots in wet ground.

We were concentrating on close ups today it was fun watching the happy snappers searching for shots.
Then we strolled through the picnic area. You can tell we have had lots of rain. I have never seen the park so green. Everyone commented on how relaxing, calm and serene it made you feel.
We spotted some wallabies. They don't come into the picnic grounds as much as they did in the dry season, obviously they have plenty of grass on the forest floor. That is also the reason that Fat Butt doesn't visit me as often.

We had a picnic sandwich and a cuppa before we made a group photo on the amphitheatre steps usually used by school classes and other groups for seminars on the environment.
