Lysterfield Lake Park

by Old Bone Machine

A  grey day with rain.

A day for the mountain bike and the trails of Lysterfield Lake Park. The park borders Birdsland Reserve and Churchill National Park and is diverse in habitat and rich in native wildlife. Eastern Grey Kangaroos and Black Wallabies are numerous as are water bird species.

Take care with the kangaroos. An Eastern Grey male can reach a height of 2 metres and weigh over 50 kilograms.

I narrowly missed a female Eastern Grey with a large joey in her pouch. Her skill and reflexes, not mine, was our saving grace.

A place to get lost.
