Macquarie Marshes' transformation captured in photos by Wellington woman

A woman from the Wellington district has captured breath-taking aerial shots of the now-green Macquarie Marshes.

Kerrie Macdonald was awestruck by the change in the wetlands she saw during a flight on September 12.

It prompted her to turn photographer, and taking up her iPhone she captured the shots of the marshes from a height of 7500 feet.

The shades of green and water running was in stark contrast to what Mrs Macdonald had seen during previous trips out west.

“It was just spectacular, the whole way from Dubbo to Brewarrina, you couldn’t take your eyes off it,” she said.

“The green and all the water running there.

“The marshes were particularly spectacular.

“I was awestruck by not just how amazingly green it was and the water flowing, but also by the change.”

The Macquarie Marshes are one of the largest remaining inland semi-permanent wetlands in south-eastern Australia and are of international importance, the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service website says.
