Ngaiawang Country Last year we visited in May. This time round we were here in July. Mallee scrub always looks pretty much the same, but there is actually a lot of colour once you get up close.

Sandy Creek is one of our closest ‘out of town’ walks. On our visit there in July we spotted plenty of birds, kangaroos, and some interesting plant life. It’s also a great workout as most of the track is sand (as you might expect)…
Sandy Creek Conservation Park is a great place for a walk. Don’t let the noise of the sand mining operation next door put you off. There’s always something interesting to see.
