Leaves in the local creek. Some are from trees that are not endemic to the area but they still look pretty.

Even the birds seem to be brown at this time of year. This one is a Brown Cuckoo-Dove, a large bird found down the east coast of Australia and also areas to the north such as New Guinea, Indonesia and The Philippines.
