Charles Darwin Reserve is currently experiencing a fabulous start to Autumn. With a heavy downfall of 187 mm of rain over the last few months the property is looking spectacular. After a long, hot, summer early rain is a very welcome relief.

Reserve Manager, Fiona Stewart, and her trusty side-kick Banjo, captured these photos while patrolling the property over the weekend. Fiona said there is an amazing amount of water, birds and mozzies!

Bush Heritage volunteers Kerry and Mick Moylan from Victoria are at Charles Darwin Reserve this week helping Fiona out – their timing couldn't have been better!
