There's a meteor shower and a comet to look forward to.
Now is the perfect time to enjoy the night sky from the comfort of your home

COVID-19 is casting doubt over a range of recreational activities as new government guidelines point us towards our living rooms and away from the great outdoors.
Is it safe to go bushwalking?

Ask the police rescue ppl who just had to rescue a 22 yo girl in Hazelbrook because she hurt her ankle bush walking. In NZ we are being told to keep walks extremely simple and local. Avoid anything that would require others to be sent to your rescue as that both potentially exposes everyone to covid, and takes people away from front line response.

National parks and camping grounds and free parking have closed now too
Mar 28, 2020 at 05:23
I'm trying to justify it to myself... but I know I shouldn't

Exercise should be taken as close to home, without driving there

This sculpture park is amazing at sunset, despite not being able to travel at the moment, love seeing photos. Can plan future trips

I wouldn't call the living desert park a "must". Nearby Mutawintji national park is much more spectacular, and natural feeling. The desert park is just too close to Broken Hill and all its mining eyesores, there's also a golf course right next to it....

Saw this on an excursion off the Indian Pacific November 2019, fantastic.

Ummm, bad timing

We can draw many lessons and opportunities from the current health crisis when tackling planetary warming.
This is what the coronavirus pandemic can teach us about tackling climate change

When I was a kid I had a fish tank and some one gave me so of their fish to add to my fish , about a week later the fish started to die .
The guy at the aquarium told me my tank had too many fish , that's why they died .
Maybe just maybe the earth is like my old fish tank ,

Stop so many planes flying around the world each year. The fuel that is being used is detrimental to everything. It just proves this point with the quality of our air that everything breathes. I am not a " greenie", just using common sense.
Mar 27, 2020 at 08:41
My view far too many spoiled people that refuse to observe & obeys the rules and situations at hand now
Mar 27, 2020 at 09:59
Certainly food for thought
Mar 27, 2020 at 14:03
Also forgot to say over 300,000 planes fly around the world each year.

Have seen a blue one in our garden. Not sure if it’s the same one. Beautiful colours.

Amazing nature, love your work Bec.

I love it when the blue bandies come and visit my garden.
Mar 27, 2020 at 09:22
I get blue banded bees in the garden,apparently they are attracted to blue,purple,mauve flowers.I have only seen them when I have zinnias.
Mar 28, 2020 at 14:05
Gorgeous color. The Queensland Carpenter Bee is a very large handsome fellow in black and gold, a regular visitor to my garden..

Maybe a virtual tour is warranted in the present times .... and by Australian Geographic, there will be many takers

Nothing like the stars out there!

Now is the perfect time to get your hands on some Australian Geographic magazines. You can buy back issues all the way back to the 1980s!
While we're living in confusing times, Australian Geographic reminds us of the incredible natural world around us.
So pull up a comfy chair and sit back with a magazine:

This image was taken by PhD student Victor Huertas on the 9 March. This coral is located around Magnetic Island, just off Townsville.
Aerial surveys conducted this week have confirmed the occurrence of a third mass bleaching event in just five years.
These unprecedented, back-to-back bleaching events leave little time for the corals to recover

This is devastating. At this rate, there's no chance for corals to recover.

With the lockdowns the world will have a brief respite from pollution and multitudes of waste producing humans rushing everywhere. Though I see China is picking up where it left off while in lockdown . Did the clear skies not encourage a rethink about how and why they can/ should control pollution.
Mar 26, 2020 at 17:45
I'm going to be contraversial here (nothing new for me) BUT the changes in the environment will show marked visual changes for the better over the next few months (it's already happening around you so show it to the rest of the world) mske them see whst used to be & what can be again. People will suddenly realise they can actually survive without everything they want or have been told they need, right here right this minute! The changes in everything around us & inside of us needs to be looked at, analysed & remembered so you can see the big picture (the real World picture) instead of your own box. This is a reset & should be viewed as such. This is our chance to see what we can do as a World community & as individuals in our World Community. Go for it, it really is this easy!
Mar 26, 2020 at 12:59
We know what needs to be done, we have seen what the world is capable of if they think some of the humans are going to die of a virus. Just perhaps we can use this same motivation to heal this problem.

There’s 40 million proposed for a new death dome greyhound racing track at Ipswich. Why not use that for something worth saving like our coral reefs instead of a cruel industry

There is constantly differing information about the state of the GBR. It is confusing and not informative.
