on the South Coast of Western Australia

The wildlife along the South Coast of Western Australia is as diverse as the countryside. One of the top six areas in the world for bio-diversity, this southern most coast is a wildlife wilderness. There are even several species of birds and animals which can be found no where else on earth.

The Black Swan of Western Australia makes it's home along the waterways surrounding the Wilson Inlet in Denmark, along with the Western Australian Pelican (soaring overhead), the Blue Wren is the symbol of Denmark and their bright blue feathers can be seen from most windows in the region.

This little blue tongue lizard was stuck between two boards of the bibbulmun track just above the Shelley Beach hang gliding platforms. Chasing snails I supect. He was grateful to be freed.
