Every road trip I’ve done over the past five years has, at some point, involved the sighting of ducks. Sometimes they’re flying overhead, sometimes they’re waddling across a road, this time they were paddling across a lake.

DSCN3217Having spotted the humans, from far away in the distance, the brilliantly white ducks paddle in for a closer look. I suspect they were expecting to be fed. Alas, that was not to be, we were there to look only.


DSCN3222 Aren’t these white ducks simply beautiful?

DSCN3219And what about this duck? Another very attractive species.

These ducks were all found swimming on the small lake in the park by the Visitor Information Centre in Parkes, NSW. It’s on the northern entrance to the town, on the Newell Hwy. The park has bbq’s, picnic tables, toilets, plenty of space and an old steam train to look at, as well as the Visitor centre. Nice and easy to find, with easy parking.

    Love the duckie pics. Have recommended feeding the ducks to to others as a means of keeping an even keel through life. They’ve stopped me from going quackers a few times:)

      Typical man, wants to eat the ducks instead of enjoying them for their spiritually uplifting company. 😉
