Gardner's Falls, Maleny, QLD.

Gardner's Falls
Gardner's Falls is worth a visit any time of the year and is a popular nature based swimming area in the summer. From the car park there is a pleasant walk alongside Obi Obi Creek for about 700 m passing a series of small cascades. Several picnic tables are placed on the shady side of the walk.

Juvenile Eastern Water Dragon and Scarlet Percher.

We saw quite a few Spangled Drongos and watched them chase away a Pacific Baza.
