Lake Dunn –

9th – 14th October 2022

Lake Dunn also known as Pajingo Bola, meaning ‘Big Fella Waterhole’ is the only wetland area in Central Queensland & consequently home to a large waterfowl population, it is located in Upland & approximately 63klm NE of Aramac. It is located one third of the way along the well-known sculpture trail, the redclaw (yabbie) is at Lake Dunn. Its a very popular spot for campers, fishers, water skiers, bird watchers & picnic-ers. There is a reserve next to the camping area where there is several tennis courts, a basket ball court, a concrete cricket slab (in the middle of a paddock), kids play area & a resonably sized club house with power, apparently the Ballynetty Recreation Club hold a few ‘big’ events here every year. Gary & Mary (Peters sister) & Storm the dog arrived & stayed for 2 nights – it was great to see them again. The last few days we were at Lake Dunn, it was very windy & cool so we only went out in the boat mid-afternoon to collect the ‘catch’ of redclaw……..not many in numbers but quite large in size, there was a mix of redclaw & blue claw. Rae cooked them up to perfection & we all managed to have a pre-dinner feast, very enjoyable.

redclaws beware

some big fellows…
full moon arising
the boys being boys
the colours of the sky were amazing
Storm made himself very comfortable when a chair was available……
