Yes. Mind you, my mate Tezza (who’s on R&R from Kalgoorlie) tells me “it’s just a f***ing lizard on a rock”. I tried to explain the finer points of the Botanics to us sensitive souls in Canberra but somehow he didn’t seem to buy it…

I love the botanical gardens. Especially the rainforest part – so relaxing.

I love these little beasts. eastern Water Dragons.

When I was kid in Canberra in the mid 70s (my first stint here) I used to catch them down at the Molonglo River and then keep them in a big cage at home.
You always used to know when a dragon was around because you’d hear a big ‘plop’ noise as he jumped into the river. Then you’d see him bobbing along in the current until he went under.

Fabulous little things, even if they can grow pretty large.

I think I will have to go there for lunch on the weekend and take a photo myself.
