Following Emus

I've blogged before about the spectacular Yuraygir Coastal Walk and the other day I met a a very happy crew on Minnie Waters Back Beach heading to Wooli. Click here for a link to info on one of the planets best coastal walks.

Meet Joel and Anita from Lismore who had put down their backpacks and were enjoying a refreshing dip in the South Pacific.

This is a Watery Wednesday post. Click here for more watery views.


  1. It's been a while since I've seen a couple that happy! :-)


    Water in a drop of rain,
    Water swirling down the drain;
    Water clinging to the trees,
    Water filling up the seas;
    Water frozen, water free,
    Water is the stuff for me!

  2. LIfe seems like a big, happy adventure for them!
    Join me tomorrow for a cyber piece of birthday cake...

  3. Looks like a very peaceful and beautiful place to go for a walk.

    Do stop by if you can find time.

    Happy Wednesday.

  5. I can see you are looking forward to a GREAT summer, Mark. :)

  6. Was intruiged by your heading. Surely no emu along the coast. But the link says 'coastal emu footprint marker'. They would not have used that as a marker unless it was legit.

    I had no idea, but thought emu were restricted to the dry inland. Golly ...

  7. What a wonderful walk and the added bonus of being able to take a dip in the sea along the way!

  8. Yes Julie there are Emus on the coast but only a handful left. I see them all the time I'n the fallow canefields but it makes for a terrible picture brown on brown.
    Over the years cars have been the main course of death for adults and cats dogs for juveniles. They used to be I'n the Bundjulang national park between Iluka and Evans Head but haven't been seen there for a few years so probably gone for good.
    I have come across them on the beach and it makes for an amazing experience but not for many years.
    They chose the emu track as the symbol for the coast walk and it's on all the signposts.
