My wife and I were at Hattah-Kulkyne NP a few weeks back and only one of the
lakes has water - haven't got the name with me, but it isn't Hattah itself
or any of the adjoining lakes, but one several Km in. The bird life was
quite good on or around it though - Australian Pelican, Grey Teal (in large
numbers), Black-fronted Plover, Emu, Australian Shelduck, Red-necked Avocet
(1 only in breeding plumage), Silver Gull, Yellow-billed Spoonbill, and a
few others I've forgotten (notes are at home), as well as lots of Regent
Parrot, Pink Cockatoo and Little Corella. The Murray-Kulkyne NP was well
worth the drive through as well, although quite boggy after the recent rain.

        Dear Birders,
        During the coming SA school holidays (Sept 25 - Oct 10) my wife and
I are planning a caravan holiday from Murray Bridge to Loxton to Mildura and
return via Hattah Lakes.
        Can any birders tell of good birding sites in and around Mildura,
say, within and hour's drive. (We don't have a 4wd - yet - that's on the
planning board). 
        Are there any native gardens open to the public? (This is to keep my
wife interested)
        Can anyone recommend any caravan parks which are near good birding
        What is the current level of water in Hattah Lakes - is it worth
taking our canoe??
        Thanks in advance for your help.
        Happy birding,
        Trevor Hampel
