Black swans can be found throughout Australia wherever there is a large anough body of water. They live around salt and fresh water. These photos were taken on the same day in Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens, where they are used to being fed by people and are therefore much more approachable than the ones I've come across in the wild.
