Warning: Not a real island
To my great shock, Pine Island is an island of pines (in a sea of eucalyptus) not an island with some pine trees on it. Fortunately, there's still water there the Murrumbidgee River, beacon of family camping holidays throughout our great state (of 350,000 people).

The landscape all around is just the type that Australia does well peaceful rather than dramatic, but no less beautiful for that. Two steps from our picnic table, I faced left, then right, and took these two pictures.

Which is all the more impressive when you realise that this is most definitely inside Australia's capital city. I often drive twice as far from our (fairly central) home to go to work.

After eating a picnic lunch, we waded through the long grass to the water, pausing only to look picturesque.
