Saw these along the road near Winton, Qld. Then again at Corella Dam, near Mt Isa. Then near the NT border at Camooweal.

Australian Brolgas pair for life and have been known to utilise the same nesting areas for up to 20 years. Standing mtrs high and a wing span of about 2 mtrs they are impressive when dancing.

Jabiru Safari Lodge is located within the Mareeba Wetlands Nature Reserve and offers safari style tent and cabin accommodation, walking trails, boat tours, nature safaris and privately guided eco-tour experiences.

Brolgas are native Australian cranes, and like cranes world-wide are decreasing in numbers as their wetland habitats are taken over by 'development' and introduced pests such as the cane toad. Credit: Harvey Creswell Photos – ABC Environment (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
