A freshwater gem in a naturally saline landscape

A lovely photo essay by our friends the Janickes featuring one of the, surprisingly, lesser known parts of the Great Western Woodlands. In its south-west corner (north east of Ravensthorpe) is some amazingly diverse bushland, and an important reminder that, even in the naturally saline landscapes of south-western Australia, freshwater and breeding frogs once featured in the waterways. This section of the Woodlands has the ‘largely pristine’ headwaters of three important south coast rivers – the Oldfield, Young and Lort. Lovely, lovely places, where the quiet is almost deafening.
