Newness Plateau

12 January 2014

Made it to the Newness Plateau (north of Lithgow) by the afternoon hoping for the Giant Dragonfly Petalura gigantea that is known for the area. The fires in October 2013 devastated the area, as seen in this picture. It didn't seem to affect the odonata too much as they were probably mostly still larvae and able to hide in the mud. Still, no sighting of the Giant Dragonfly for me.
