I thought I was going to give you some peace but sorry.....nope! We have travelled south and stayed overnight in Clermont and I had to snap a couple of pictures of course.
Mr R. was keen for me to capture the murals on the old train....surprise!
I loved the pretty walk beside the lagoon in town.
From here we spent the next evening in Springsure. A local told us about a lookout in Minerva National Park, 10 kms out of town. So off we went. Didn't count on the rough road....
The view was certainly worth the rattling of the bones.....Freds Gorge!
Further along the track was Eclipse Lookout....once again another wonderful spot to enjoy the fantastic view.
Mr R. promised me if we had time we would visit an absolute favourite spot of mine on our return trip. So that's where we headed after Springsure but not before I snapped this rustic town signage. I had admired them in several towns but wasn't able to stop for a pic.
Now my favourite spot? Carnarvon Gorge of course. I was born around here and for some reason I feel very much at home here....love it! As we had done all the big wqlks last time we were here we just took our cameras and took leisurely strolls on the easier walks......Mickeys Creek Gorge walk.....so lovely and peaceful.
Pretty bird calls, swamp wallaby encounters, trickling streams.....huge trees...
A truly unique place....another favourite is rock hopping across Carnarvon Creek on the Nature trail.
I love the rock pool too.
Such a beautiful place and your encounter with wildlife is almost guaranteed. You may pick out a couple of local wallabies in these pics.
We were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of platypus at our campground...so special! No photos as they only obliged us just on dark. There truly is beauty around each bend in this gorgeous place.....
We are now heading home and these few days were a perfect way to finish our trip.
Catch you in the big smoke *sigh* I am definitely looking forward to big hugs from my babies, I have missed them so very much.
Thank you all so much for keeping us company and your very nice comments.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
