Wonthaggi Heathland

I like what I see.

With family now living in Wonthaggi it's been interesting to explore a new area on a regular basis. This time I had a brief taste of the Wonthaggi Heathland Reserve. It looks fantastic and must be a great place to visit in spring. Yesterday the Epacris impressa was flowering in various shades of pink, there were a few flowers on tea trees, wattles, guinea-flower, Drosera macrantha and Wedding Bush - just enough to see what it's going to be like in a few weeks time. I found a few fungi species beside the track and leaves of orchids, and heard a few birds and frogs. I'll be back.
