Wild South East

a nature blog of south-east Victoria, mostly Gippsland

About

Hi all, this is a blog I’ve put together showcasing the flora, fauna and wild places of Australia’s far south-east, particularly the Gippsland region. This area is a highly fertile part of Australia and originally supported large tracts of forests and woodland before it was cleared mainly for dairy and forestry industries. Scattered and sometimes vast areas of the original vegetation still remain, particularly in central and east Gippsland.

I’m lucky to work in the environmental management industry and I get to regularly visit many interesting sites throughout Gippsland during work as well as on weekends. I rarely don’t have my camera on me and as such I am regularly snapping photos of anything and everything I come across on my travels. Things of particular interest I put on this blog and hopefully those of you out there with a passion for nature will appreciate it.

Hope you enjoy it.

  1. I only just found your page and when I get time I will be going right through it. I love it. There’s a few of us who are into everything we can find out in the wilds and I will be showing them as well. Whilst my site has not been updated in a long time and needs a lot of work, please feel free to take a look.

    • Thanks Matt, I’ve always had an interest in everything around me whether its wildlife or plants and it helps that I work with them every day. I had a look at your site and it’s fantastic, great photos. I, like yourself, have always had a particular passion for reptiles and look forward to the warmer months when they come out. I’ll try to post another blog about Gippsland’s reptiles pretty soon. Do you still run wildlife tours? It sounds like a great job. Anyway thanks again,
      Craig

  2. Hi Craig, great photos. There’s one of the poa poiformis (Slender Tussock Grass) that I would love to include in an app I’m putting together about a native garden at a residential estate near Werribee. Can you please get in touch with me via email to discuss if you’re willing to sell the rights to use this image? My address is shane@shp.net.au

    Thanks!

    • Hi Shane, thanks for the enquiry.Feel free to use this photo at no cost as long as you credit me, Craig Boase http://www.wildsoutheast.wordpress.com. If you aren’t wanting to use this credit on the photo we can come to an arrangement for you to buy the rights to the photo. I’m overseas at the moment so it may take a while to respond to any other emails.

  4. Hi Craig,

    I live in Tyers and was wondering if you are an ecologist and whether you work privately or for an organisation. I think you photos are amazing!

    Cheers

  6. Hi! I just recently found this blog, and I have enjoyed reading very much. I also run a blog that is dedicated to birding locations in East Gippsland. I was wondering if you would be interested in a link swap for our blogs. No pressure or anything, just a suggestion. Cheers, Reuben.

    • Hi Reuben, thanks for the nice comment. I’ve had a look through your blog too and its a fantastic read. I like the way you have a google map showing the location. I also like the post on ethical birding as all too often I come across birders (or wildlife photographers in general) who put the health and well being of fauna at risk just because they want to get ‘that shot’. I’ve added a link on my ‘blogs I follow’ to include yours. Speak soon I hope,
      Craig
