Where I stayed
Takarakka Bush Resort
There were a few complaints from the Bradley who had sore hips from yesterdays walk & we left him sitting at the trailheads & Nath & I would do the side track.
First up was Wards Canyon which was very beautiful. A small steep track wound around a waterfall to a lush tropical area of rainforest with rare King Ferns.
Brad joined us on the Amphitheatre track & it was pretty cool & needed some ladders & steps to get up into the cave. After going through a tunnel it opens into a 60 metre chamber, gouged from rock by running water. With the great acoustics we had to of course do the obligatory " Cooooooeeee" ( the Australian bush call)
Our last side track was Moss Garden which was a beautiful brilliant green carpet of ferns & mosses growing off rock walls a small waterfall & swimming hole.
Back home to relax watch the wallabies come out & graze in the late afternoon shade.
