Studley Park to Dight's Falls Walk

This walk is a continuation of the Dight's Falls to Studley Park Walk, with this walk starting from Kane's Bridge.Yarra River Studley Park
At Studley Park Boathouse, you can hire paddle boats and take a short cruise up and down the Yarra and have a picnic under the shady trees.

The track follows the high side of the bank, before coming back down near the water, where I spotted these two lovebirds.

Speaking of lovebirds, they're so hard to see in this photo, but I was so excited to see a ball of grey feathers in a tree - a Tawny Frogmouth. On closer inspection, it appeared to be two birds. Then - they moved a little and I was thrilled to see it was actually THREE of them all snuggled up together on the chilly morning. 
Too. Darn. Cute.
