Lake Eacham

I've been doing the Lake Eacham circuit each morning. It's only 3km and is mostly flat, so isn't a terribly arduous walk, but it takes about an hour with frequent stops for watching the birds and admiring the scenery. It seems to be popular with the locals who power walk around the lake. It's certainly a good place for the morning constitutional.

Not being here with a botanist — or any botany books — I have no idea about the plants. So I'll just put up some pics and you can appreciate the vibe of the landscape if not the details. Before you look at the photos get this in your mind — it's humid, pleasantly mild and the birds are singing like crazy in the canopy …
