Nambucca Valley

Since I moved to the Nambucca Valley, I have spent many hours enjoying the views of and the activities on the Nambucca River. My home town of Macksville offers stunning views of the broad river and the mountains beyond, while the town of Nambucca Heads situated on the estuary of the river is one of the most beautiful settings I have ever seen. These two towns and the nearby towns of Bowraville and Scotts Head make up the community of the Nambucca Valley.

FOOD: FRESH, GROWING, GATHERING, SELLING, BUYING,

Growing,buying,selling.....time is the essence. Just how long does it take for an apple to travel from the tree to the lunch box. Does it matter?

Kakadu in the Wet Season

When the wet season comes to northern Australia around Christmas time, Kakadu National Park is very hard to get around by vehicle. Rain pours off the escarpment and fills the creeks and rivers to overflowing - they flood the plains and the otherwise dry landscape is inundated with moisture. This is a period of renewal, when the country recovers from seven months of dry, hot weather. Trees flower and fruit and it is a time of plenty for all creatures including animals and mankind.

The other bird was one of the adult Baza, sitting on a tree branch, partly hidden by leaves, observing its young offspring.
