By markjj15 ·  · From Pic of the Week
In the Goomburra Section of the Main Range National Park in Country Southern Queensland, you will find Araucaria Falls. From the time you leave the car park you are in a world away, walking through the dense rainforest, listening to the bird calls and arriving to the falls quicker than expected for a 1.8km hike.                          Published 25 May 2017.  Tregony QLD 4370

Mt Arapiles - Rock Climb
By Greg Gorter ·  · From Pic of the Week

Mt Arapiles is regarded as one of Australia's premier "Rock Climbing" locations. Rising sharply from the Wimmera plains to form part of the Tooan State Park, "The Arapiles" as its commonly known, not only has unique rock climbing faces, but also a variety of beautiful flora & fauna in the Wimmera district. Situated approx 10klm from the small town of Natimuk, the Arapiles immediately engage you as a prehistoric form of metamorphic rock faces as they rise to over 370m (1,210ft) above the skyline. The Aboriginal name for Arapiles is "Djurite".       Nikkor f 5.6 (200-500mm) lens   200mm @ f8, 1/20 - ISO 100     Published 24 Apr 2017.  Miga Lake VIC 3409

Magpie lark aka Mud lark
By thispaolo ·  · From Pic of the Week
When I was young I helped one of these back to health after it was attacked by the neighbour's cat.It would return for a few days looking for a feed and eventually it flew away. So I kind of have a soft spot for these guys although this is the first one I've photographed.    Published 26 May 2017.  Sydney NSW 2000

The view from Barrenjoey Lighthouse.
By Beth ·  · From Pic of the Week
We are living aboard our 35 foot catamaran Bella Luna and we (particularly the captain) like walking up hills. I'm happy to walk up hills too as long as there's something up the top. In order to coax the two Smalls (9yo and 6yo) up to see Barrenjoey Lighthouse...basically...we lied, and told them the playground was up there. They were, however, quite consoled by the view and the fact that there's steps to climb up and a track to climb down - or vice versa.        Published 23 May 2017.  Palm Beach NSW 2108

Budgie swarm
By D. Joshua Brunner ·  · From Pic of the Week
I found this out on Peedamulla road, near Onslow in Western Australia – there were literally millions of budgies all rocketing around.   After the rains we had a few months ago, we have had various population explosions. It started with beetles, then grasshoppers and now these little birds.   I can only compare them to huge flocks of starlings.      Published 22 May 2017.  Onslow WA 6710
