Wyreema Wet lands, Toowoomba


We've had a couple down days around Toowoomba to get caught up on such things as groceries, liquor store, diesel fuel...you know, the necessities in life. Today we ventured out for a bit to a couple parks in town: one we've visited before and one that was new to us. Let's start with the new one, the Wyreema Wetlands. Here we saw the Black Flying Fox. Actually, we saw a tree filled in approximately 100 of these interesting creatures.





These fellows are pretty darn large. It appeared that the wing span was easily over a meter. We didn't see they fly much...they were in to roosting high in a tree. These are pretty amazing animals.


We also saw an old friend there as well, the Laughing Kookaburra. He perched in a tree not far from us and posed for a long while.
