Megalong Valley Farmhouse This type of farmhouse setting can be seen all over outback. This image was taken at sunrise with bushfire smog in the air. Megalong Valley is simply magic. A drive down into the valley itself from Blackheath is an unforgettable experience.
One of the shyest of birds, they are quite spectacular and rarely seen. Many Australians have never seen one. They are a small, stocky cockatoo with a wispy crest, large, broad wings and a short tail. The adult male has a distinctive scarlet red head and crest, with the rest of the body slate-grey. You always know when they’re around, you’ll hear the sound of a creeking door!!
