Hi, we are Marlis and Robert, photographers with a deep passion for nature and wildlife. This site is intended as a reference for wildlife lovers interested in the local fauna / flora around Mackay, Australia. Both of us hope that anyone visiting these galleries will find joy in the beauty of the birds and the nature shown therein, and just as importantly, gain a greater appreciation of the unique and wonderful Australian wildlife / nature and the need for it's protection in the face of unprecedented habitat destruction and the effects of the climatic changes as they are occurring right now. As this site is being regularly updated we invite you to take a look at both our LATEST IMAGES galleries for the most recently added photos. Our thanks to the photographers who are kind enough to leave us a comment ! Contact us at
