Featured Image – Parked up in the prime spot.
Well as you will see by the pics and video, the Wanderingeagles have plonked themselves in absolute bird heaven 😁😁
We are so glad on deciding to drive a little bit further south to Childers.
We have picked avocados in this area quite some years ago and always liked the surrounds here.
We stayed at a different caravan park then but we had heard of this amazing park/ retreat, with a big lake at its doorstep so we we’re pretty keen to have a look.
Lake Redbrook Holiday Retreat is incredible.
The owners have created this beautiful oasis in amongst the surrounding sugar cane and other farms so it seems that any bird in this area would surely want to visit here.
They allowed us to park our rig on the marquee site…..usually reserved for weddings etc, which is the prime spot only about 10 metres from the lakes edge.
So while we are enjoying our morning and afternoon cuppochinos we have this amazing birdlife show going on outside our dinette window.
It’s been great waking up to their sounds and we love the frogs chirping away as we go to sleep at night.

We did manage to pull ourselves away to visit one of our favourite beaches.
Woodgate Beach is around half an hours drive from here. We didn’t see many birds but it was low tide at the estuary and all the little soldier crabs were out and about en masse…..it was incredible to watch.
We have never seen this before, I took a small video of them. They kept us amused for quite some time.

We leave tomorrow and head down to the Sunshine Coast which will be very very busy, a big change from the beautiful serenity here.
Please enjoy Anthony’s amazing photos, and check out my videos,
Bye for now Steph and Anthony.
