Tick tock tick tock……how time flies. It’s hard to believe another week plus has flown by so quickly.
We have been out and about pretty much every day. We keep doing the rounds of all our little hotspots, which is fantastic fun though some places have their little pitfalls.
Like Lake Barrine…..every time we visit, which is very often, we can’t pass up the award winning scones 🙄🙄 which is usually in the morning.
One day it took us around 4 hours to walk the 5 km circuit around the lake so of course we had to have lunch there as well.
So we are putting on some weight but figure when we get back to work on our shaking cherry pickers in Stanthorpe it will all miraculously melt away again.
The weather hasn’t been the best really.
We had some hot days last week and all the birds and bugs seemed to be more abundant and then the weather turned back to almost wintery conditions.
I had to have my jumper on the last few days in the rainforests…..very chilly.
I don’t think the birds like it much either. This morning it’s drizzling so hopefully the sun pops out a bit later.

We are trying our best to get more photos and video of the male Victoria’s Riflebird.
He is just amazing to watch when he starts displaying.
We found a great broken tree stump in the Wongabel Forest with the male sitting on top.
He did start to display a little, a female did come through and he took off after her but did stay in the area so we are keen to go back when the sun comes out and try again for some Wow pics and video.

We are coming up to our last weekend in this area so will have to start heading south again next week, but there will be plenty of nature stops along the way. Enjoy all the pics and videos.
