Our guide serves tea at 10:00 AM then takes our lunch orders.|

Left: According to the folks at www.hermes.net.au this is a Clan PeeWee or Magpie Lark — not to be confused with the European Magpie. They are named for their piebald coloring, and are found all through Australia where-ever their is water to build their mud nests and provide food during breeding season. They are feisty characters with a strident screeching call.|
Right: This is the bloom of the Australian bottlebrush plant.
