Bribie Lunch

Bribie Island is about an hour's drive north of where I live.  I rarely go there, but had a delightful few hours there yesterday (Sunday).  First of all, lunch at Blue Anchorage, overlooking the water.  Seafood pasta
 Macadamia Sundae
The view
 
Then a trip to Buckley's Hole Conservation Park.  In this small area (87.7 hectares) 270 different bird species have been noted.  On the way to the bird hide we saw a bat - sooo cute!
A little bird was nesting in the bird hide...
 
 and a bigger bird was swanning around in the water
 From Banksia Beach you can see dugongs.  None there yesterday, but spectacular views across to the Glasshouse Mountains
Apparently the dugongs love this seaweed.

  1. Hi Kate,
    Did you check out the Bribie Is Quilters show? It was on the weekend.
    We like taking the littlies to Bribie to ride their bikes along the bike paths.
