________________________________________________________Darling is a very quaint little village. It is VERY small and doesn't appear to have much to offer at a first glance. To be honest, upon arriving that Thursday afternoon, I was rather disappointed. The power was out in the village so most of the places were closed and our accommodation was in an absolute state because the poor lady couldn't get things in order before our arrival without power. Anyway, we managed to get the place sorted out and that evening at 7pm the power came back on.
The nature reserve wasn't really much - the West Coast flora only really comes into its own in September really - when all the wild flowers are in bloom, but the views of the country side were breathtaking, especially with the moody, rainy sky.
PS. There are a lot more photos on my Instagram accounts should you want to take a look - Gee_Whiskers and SeiniTravels.
