Feeding the alpacas
This is the first place we went to. You wouldn’t think it would be so fun… but it was. Look at this face!
I quickly learned that you should keep your distance… lest you get caught in the crossfire of spit.
Glenn, however, wasn’t as lucky as I was.
They sold lamingtons there which were a bit so-so. There were two friendly dogs and a cat that we stole snuggles from. It was unexpectedly fun.
I loved it here, it was truely beautiful. I could easily have spent a week here birding. We walked in the treetops for about 20 minutes and didn’t get a chance to see that much, which was disappointed. Knocked a few species of my life list though!
We didn’t get a chance to feed the birds as Glenn wanted to climb to the top of the lookout/ladder to see what photos he could get. It didn’t matter because we all know that I’m definitely coming back here.
We had an hour or so to spend on the mountain before heading to Curtis Falls. This isn’t nearly enough time – you could easily spend a day up here. However this trip was about exposing us to new areas and helping us learn what we liked.
We had just sat down to have overpriced garlic bread when a storm hit. Many locals had been talking about how the wet season was yet to start and they were expecting good storms. We were treated to a decent show. There was another storm later that night, which we watched from our hotel balcony. I love decent Queensland storms.
The water fall was okay. It was gorgeous but like everything on these tours, we didn’t have enough time to appreciate it’s beauty. I plan to return to several of these places with more knowledge and photography gear.
I also was distracted by the wildlife.
We got to see the nest this bush turkey had made. I had gotten several photos of the birds but none of the nest. My nephew asked about them everytime I called him so I was so glad to get a photo. We could see where he had scratched up most of the path.
This post sounds less then enthusiastic because it has been a month since the holiday and this took place on the final day. We were exhausted! We really enjoyed the tour though. It was disappointing that we had to rush through everything. Highly recommended.
