At dusk these fellows are every where. They are vermin, but they do look cute.
Here is a Fact about rabbits in OZ.

The State Barrier Fence of Western Australia, formerly known as the No. 1 Rabbit-proof Fence, the State Vermin Fence and the Emu Fence, is a pest-exclusion fence constructed between 1901 and 1907 to keep rabbits and other agricultural pests, from the east, out of Western Australian pastoral areas.

There are three fences in Western Australia: the original No. 1 Fence, which crosses the state from north to south, the No. 2 Fence which is smaller and further west, and the smaller east-west running No. 3 fence. The fences took six years to build. When completed in 1907, the Rabbit-Proof Fence (including all three fences) stretched 2,021 miles (3,253 km). The cost to build the fences at the time was £337,841



The impressive wedge tail eagle looking for something to eat, better run rabbits !
A large brown bird of prey, it has a wingspan of up to 2.27 metres (7.4 ft) and a length up to 1.04 metres (3.4 ft).
The female Wedge-tailed Eagle weighs between 3 and 5.77 kg (6.6 and 12.7 lb), while the smaller males weigh 2 to 4 kg (4.4 to 8.8 lb)


I like this shot of the sunset over the rail line. A train called the Indian Pacific, passes here 4 times a week. That is how most thing are delivered to Forrest. Freight trains also pass day and night, these can often be over 1 km long, with multiple engines up front.



Here is andre' you can see behind him the free public transport on offer at Forrest(just under the "stop" right side), yes the good old push bike. I had not been on one of these for years, the next day my backside also told me that I had not road a bike in some time.



This is just out of the town of Ceduna, the beach look great. The wind was up so no swimming here.
