This is a sample of photographs taken by Liz Parkinson of the birds, trees, ferns and reptiles found in the rain-foresty areas at the back of North Avoca. All these photos have been taken in the yard or in the bushland behind her house (except for the python, which was on her neighbour's back deck). There are some hundreds of different tree and fern species native to the area, and dozens of  birds and reptiles. There are also mammals such as possums and bats, while the once-plentiful indigenous koala species have been hunted to extinction on the NSW Central Coast.
