Would you believe we woke this morning to perfect blue skies??? Very lucky ……so we quickly had our morning cappuccinos with my sister Denise and her hubby Mark, packed our camera gear and headed up to Paluma which is about 1 hours drive from here (Bluewater).
The 20 km winding range road is a bit hairy as it’s so narrow and we have the big wide dual wheeled F truck, which is really not made for narrow windy roads. We stopped at Little Crystal Creek on the way up which is a really beautiful spot with the old stone bridge and great picnic areas…..very picturesque. Then drove through the small mountaintop town of Paluma and on a dirt road out to Birthday Creek Falls and the Paluma Dam.
Well the last blog seems like ages ago and we really haven’t done much. The weather did turn nasty so we have been making our way slowly north but of course travelling on the Bruce Highway is very busy and pretty much featureless if you ask me. Maybe the inland roads would be a better way for us to go🙄🙄
Cheers Steph and Anthony.
Hello Everyone, sorry we have been out of touch, but things have been happening…….
We towed our van back to Cania Gorge for 4 nights to relax a bit after our disaster.
Meanwhile, my sister (Denise) and her hubby Mark had bought a bus which they picked up from the Sunshine Coast the same day we went in for repairs.
We decided to all meet up at the Gorge which was fantastic as they also had a hectic time leaving the coast in torrential rain and having a few glitches with the bus on the way…..
They were also very keen to just relax a bit in a beautiful quiet place.
Mark also has a big lens camera, so the competition was on as to who could get the best photo.
It was great fun and we also did a lot of hiking around the Gorge and as you can see by the photos and video it certainly is a magical spot.
It’s nice and warm here but there’s rain looming.
Tomorrow will be the worst and this park is booked out so we will have to move on, it’s a different noisy world in these big places that’s for sure, give me the small country places any day.
So bye for now and will update as we head north.
Steph and Anthony.
