Jurien Bay, Western Australia

just in from Rebecca in Western Australia...

Hi Mr Swan!

I have two photos of an awesome house of tyre swans! From Jurien Bay
in WA. We passed it while lost, and I made my husband turn around so I
could take photos of it.

Wish I could give you more information, but I was so excited to have
passed a *house* of tyre swans, I just had to share.

Hi Ron.

I always wanted a tyre swan and was lucky enough to be given a forlorn specimen. I just finished restoring it, grinding decades of paint layers off, repainting and giving it new life as a much needed herb planter. My 8 year old has named him Herbet and he was just completed and planted last night!. He was found in Bayswater Vic and has found a forever home with us in Langwarrin Vic.
Here are some before and after pics.
PS...Need to find him a mate...it's hard to stop at one!
