Dickson Wetland, Canberra, 2014 & 2016. Photo Slideshow Wetlands provide a range of benefits such as: Restoration of concrete channels to 'living systems' Improved water quality - reduction of nutrients (total phosphorous and total nitrogen) and suspended solids Improved flood protection - by detaining water and releasing it slowly Creation of aquatic habitat - planted wetlands attract water birds, frogs, turtles, water bugs and yabbies Cool the local environment Act as a carbon sink Provide opportunities for 'natural' recreational experiences in our suburbs Provide the community with education and volunteer programs like Frogwatch and Waterwatch Harvested stormwater is used for irrigation of localsports grounds instead of drinking water.

I took a road trip to the Snowy Mountains with a two day stay in Canberra on the way. Photos include the Parliament House followed by Davies Plain (crossing the Murray River at Tom Groggin into Victoria and an arduous four wheel drive - but so worth it). Very cold nights with minus 9 degrees temperatures. An overnight stay in Geehi with the stone huts and finally going over the great dividing range spotting Brumbies on the side of the road the highlight. The stark white trees are the gum trees burnt in the bush fires of 2007 that never recovered.

The city is located at the northern end of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), 280 km (170 mi) south-west of Sydney, and 660 km (410 mi) north-east of Melbourne. A resident of Canberra is known as a "Canberran". The site of Canberra was selected for the location of the nation's capital in 1908 as a compromise between rivals Sydney and Melbourne, Australia's two largest cities.

Following an international contest for the city's design, a blueprint by the Chicago arch...

Photos I took of birds in Canberra City & suburbs. Canberra and the surrounding region has the richest bird life of any Australian capital city – over two hundred species have been recorded here. From our largest bird, the Emu, to the smallest, the Weebill, the birds of Canberra present an ever-changing kaleidoscope of sizes, shapes, colours and sounds.

The walk is purely for fun and for those who enjoy dressing up, and those with a love of brains.As with other cities in Australia, the Canberra Zombie Walk will be supporting the brilliant work of the Brain Foundation.
