I'm a retired photographer living in Lilydale mainly researching and writing on Australian aviation history. Now writing more on general subjects.
Kermit's day out
World Wetlands Day is celebrated internationally each year on 2 February, being first celebrated in 1997.
Since then government agencies, non-government organisations and community groups have celebrated World Wetlands Day by undertaking actions to raise public awareness of wetland values and benefits and promote the conservation and wise use of wetlands.

Wide gravel paths circumnavigate the ponds providing views from different angles. It is a very quiet area and doesn't attract the crowds of the Lillydale Lake circuit. On my first visit there, I only encountered three people and a dog, on a lead of course.
The World Wetland Day is a good opportunity to experience this almost hidden wetland area and learn about the local habitat of Kermit's cousins.
