Susan Island Nature Reserve

Susan Island separates Grafton and South Grafton in the Clarence River. I have shown shots of the Eastern End, but never the National Parks Nature Reserve at the Western End. In the distance on the left hand side is the South Grafton CBD.

It is a very important Nature Reserve as it is dominated by Tulip wood Trees and is the last real remnant of Lowland Rain forest in the Clarence Valley. In summer it is often home to millions of fruit bats.

This is a Skywatch Friday Post. Click here for more glorious sky shots from around our world.


  1. I'd like to see those millions of bats coming out to seek food. I'm sure it would be an impressive sight!


    Imagine a world with no sky—
    Through what would the geese and crows fly?
    And where would bears go
    If there were no snow
    Falling to earth from on high?

  3. That's a beautiful view and overcasting clouds over the sky.

  4. Great sky in the first and interesting facts too Mark.

  5. Gorgeous shots - love that first one.

  6. What a lovely little island and fascinating to read it's rainforest too. Good photos Mark.


  7. This one made me smile because it reminds me of the mountains around our rural retreat ... but surrounded by water rather than farmland.
