I am writing from Italy. I am planning a nature photography holiday next August (second half) and will focus my trip to Western Australia (approximately moving around between Stirling range N.P. in the South and Shark Bay in the north). This will be also my first time in Australia.
The main focus of my trip will be wildflowers and reptiles and, as for reptiles, I would be glad if somebody among the forum members could give me some advice.
I recently bought the Reptiles and frogs in the bush book by Bush et al. and I found many useful hints there, but I still have many doubts.
More precisely I would like to have some answers to the following questions:
1) is the second half of August good for herps? Is it still too cold?
2) is the whole WA fenced? I mean, is it possibile to enter the bush from the road or fences and private property rules make this impossible everywhere?
3) Could anybody advise me about some places where to see Moloch horridus in the Kalbarri/Shark bay area?
4) Is there any place not too far from the Shark bay area where I could observe Tympanocryptis cephalus?
Many thanks in advance to all people willing to answer.
