The next morning we were up early with the sunrise. We were heading to the highlight of the trip.
Mum and I had come across the Valley of the Mist farm in my latest Australian Permaculture magazine.

Valley of the Mist is a farm run by a couple (Dennis and Marilyn) in Macksville. They grow Australian bush food for market; Lemon Myrtle, Lilli Pillis, Davidson Plums, Finger Limes and a dozen others.
Not only that, though. But their property includes this incredible wetland ecosystem with a wealth of unique plants and animals; including the largest nesting colony of black swans in this part of Australia.

Dennis was kind enough to paddle us around in his canoe. There are no words for this experience. It was simply amazing.

I'll let my photographs do the talking for me.

Really... There are no words.
Thank you, Dennis and Marilyn, for sharing with us your remarkable corner of the world.
Also to introducing me to Davidson Plums and Finger Limes! I'm a huge fan now!
