Coombabah Lakes Conservation Area, QLD, Australia

Aboriginal name: "coombabah"/"koombabah" = land/home of the turtle; "koomboobah" = place of the cobra worms

Here a few photos taken at Coombabah Lakes Conservation Area on the Gold Coast, QLD. This mangrove- lined intertidal wetland is an important stop-over for migratory aquatic birds on the East coast of Australia.
