Lake Bindegolly National Park, QLD, Australia

Here a few photos taken at Lake Bindegolly NP. It is located near Thargomindah, in south-western QLD, several hundred km west of Brisbane, protecting a natural ephemeral lake and its surroudings. Apart from aquatic birds, when there is water in the lake, also animals of the semi-arid to arid plains of the Outback can be found there, such as e.g. Bourke's Parrot.

Map of Lake Bindegolly NP; more wildlife can be found in a bush camping area on the southern side of the highway which is not shown on the map, where "Lake Bindegolly Bridge" is written on the map
