Compare the emu chicks from the entry back on the 21st September, haven't they grown !
They are still "hanging" around with dad, bout time they left home don't you think !
Anyway, we love to see them everyday.
Here they are relaxing at the front of the visitor centre cooling off under their favourite tree !
New inovation for 2011 at the Jabiru Safari Lodge.
Dinner on the Lagoon Deck overlooking Clancy's Lagoon only available to in house guests.
For the All Inclusive Outback Package, all meals ( including lunch ) are available now at the Lagoon Deck. What a view for evening dinner at sunset.
Join us for a glass of champagne whilst watching the glorious sunset over Clancy's Lagoon before a delicous dinner catered for by Murri's Delights with indigenous flavours.
If you are staying on the bed & breakfast rate, you can still enjoy the evening meal on the Lagoon Deck, pre booking is essential.
The lodge is closed for the wet season which started with a bang in November 2010, 1 month early. In November 2009 we had 25mls of rain but in November 2010 we had 200mls of rain !
The access road was flooded several times and the reserve was looking at its best with lush growht of green grass.
The animals love this time of the year and are very active. Lots of birds, lizards, butterflys and dragonflys everywhere.
