A secret beach, a friendly echidna and a flying pelican 🌊🐗🌊
Today's featured Tassie walk is all about Boltons Beach.
Boltons Beach is so incredibly beautiful.... to say it is a little piece of Tassie paradise is an understatement! You will find it just 10km's past Triabunna, look for Hermitage Road on the right and then you drive 5km's down a dirt road. Then you come face to face with pure Tasmania :)
Boltons Beach is 4.2km's of amazingly clear waters, waves that actually break on the beach (I'm not kidding you), a lagoon called Hermitage in the south and an entire beach backed by sand dunes! All up just over 8km's along the beach and back, around 1.5 hours.
Oh and the only person I ran into was a Parks & Wildlife officer doing an Asset Check (where they note the conditions of the tracks and roads) :) #Tasmania

Just a quick update to let you know the search for Oscar continues. Our 'Oscar Recovery team' aka his dedicated keepers will be out and about again tonight volunteering their time to find him.
Last night he was spotted near the Engineering Building at The University of Adelaide north terrace campus perched on an air conditioner. The unit looks similar to the hatch to his aviary so we think he may be disorientated.
Oscar has lovely slate grey back with white spots and a greyish belly with a beautiful face and dark eyes. He is believed to be either within the university grounds, or within 1km of the zoo. If you’re in the area, please check all window sills, shelves, and trees.
He’s not a bird that flies too far, so we’re really hopeful that he’s hanging around the local area. If you spot Oscar, please call his recovery team on 0408 011 443 or leave a comment below. Please share this post so we can reach as many people as possible to make sure Oscar is safe. Thank you very much for your help! 💚
This morning I led the Labor Party’s opposition to the dirty deal done by Senator Hinch and the Turnbull Government to further strip away workers' rights. I am proud to be fighting to protect working families and their trade unions. One Nation and Senators Xenephon and Hinch cannot be trusted when it comes to standing up for workers. Please Like and Share if you agree.

Studies show a direct link between the amount of physical possessions in a house and the stress level of the female homeowner. One study done at UCLA found that the more stuff was in a woman’s house, the higher her level of stress hormones. This same study also found that women subconsciously relate how happy they are with their homelife and family to how they feel about their homes. So the more clutter and chaos in the home, the less happy the woman is with her family and her life.
*** 8 YEARS ON - REMEMBERING BLACK SATURDAY *** #vscweather #blacksaturday #8yearson
As a weather fanatic, I've also been fascinated by natural disasters. But before Hurricane Sandy in 2012, no other natural disaster captivated my imagination more than Black Saturday.
On the 7th February, 2009, Victoria was set to see the worst bushfire conditions ever - temperatures set to be in excess of 40 in most parts of the state, winds up and beyond 100km/h, and little to no rainfall in the last two months. The rest as they is well and truly now history. Melbourne reached 46.4 degrees, with many extreme temperature records either created or absolutely smashed. 173 people died when fires absolutely ravished half a million kilometres worth of bone dry bushland.
Every year I am beyond fascinated and fearful of what Black Saturday did to everyone, not just those directly affected. I sat in a restaurant in south west Sydney for my sister's birthday on the 8th of February, and it wasn't until I saw the charred remains of houses and the ferocity of flames that it really hit me. The images hit me more so 8 years on as I begin my journey to study climate science, to study why freak events like this occur. Black Saturday encouraged a huge review on fire management practices nation wide. It is because of Black Saturday that we now have the "Catastrophic" fire rating.
Join Victorian Storm Chasers today as we remember Black Saturday, 8 years on. Our admins will share with all our fans stories and memories of this day, and we encourage our fans with stories to share theirs too. Today we honour the lives lost 8 years ago through sharing the Australian spirit through our stories.
BREAKING NEWS: We're a step closer to delivering what Australians want. While we're still reviewing the detail of the Senate Committee's Report, it's clear that politicians have started to rise above party politics, achieve consensus and open the door to equality becoming the law of the land in 2017.
