While visiting Busselton, Western Australia, friends & I stumbled upon “The Shed” market place and wow, wonderful atmosphere, people, produce and food. Not a place to be missed when next visiting Busselton.
(The Shed is a regional market which is located in the heart of the South West of Western Australia. Predominately a produce market incorporating ‘Eat Street’ international food fare and a regular pop-up craft market. The market promotes sustainable farming and supports local farmers, food producers, artisans, creators and makers. )
Fremantle is a major Australian port city in Western Australia, located at the mouth of the Swan River. Fremantle Harbour serves as the port of Perth, the state capital. Fremantle was the first area settled by the Swan River colonists in 1829. It was declared a city in 1929, and has a population of approximately 27,000.
Fremantle is a fascinating place with hundreds of heritage listed buildings. It’s a popular tourist destination with heaps of Australian history.
Living here in Perth, Western Australia, we are lucky enough to see Dolphins (Bottle Nose) quite frequently, which is so wonderful. Here are a few that I managed to capture with my camera.
A wallaby is a small- or mid-sized macropod found in Australia and New Guinea. They belong to the same taxonomic family as kangaroos and sometimes the same genus, but kangaroos are specifically categorised into the six largest species of the family. The term wallaby is an informal designation generally used for any macropod that is smaller than a kangaroo or wallaroo that has not been designated otherwise.
I photographed these gorgeous little Wallabies at a Western Australian Wild life sanctuary (where they are cared for by a loving family, after being rescued and not able to be released back into the wild due to some form of injury)
The emu is the second-largest living bird by height, after its ratite relative, the ostrich. It is endemic to Australia where it is the largest native bird and the only extant member of the genus Dromaius. The emu’s range covers most of mainland Australia, but the Tasmanian emu and King Island emu subspecies became extinct after the European settlement of Australia in 1788. The bird is sufficiently common for it to be rated as a least-concern species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
