O’Malley is home to around 20 embassies and high commissions. All the streets include aboriginal words, such as Callemonda Rise and Timbarra Crescent.
Because of the two nature reserves here (Mount Mugga Mugga and Issacs Ridge), many trails lead into the bush. Kangaroos and cockatoos are common sights, framed against the blue sky, green grasses (this time of year), and the varied tans of the dusty trails. What I didn’t expect to see when I moved to O’Malley was orange … and a lot of it.
Wildflowers thrive at the edge of the trails.
