We climbed that nearby hill once more to get some reception on the phone and let people know we were alive and just fine. Neither telstra nor optus work out here. Poor Glenn had to go further up into the hills to get a signal, which was patchy, while I waited at the top of the first hill taking in the view and getting my breathe back. Just Gorgeous!
During the second night we discovered all the creatures making such noise ... no doubt rejoicing in the rain and wet soggy conditions. Wasn't much else to do in the situation except investigate your surrounding. If you go there be prepared to see these guys around camp ... along with cicada's and birds of all types.
Also, this place is covered in 4 leaf clovers ... so be sure to have a good look for them. We found 10 without really trying, so I'm putting in the lotto this weekend. I also found one of these but a shame I couldn't find the bird in question.
We decided to have lunch on Monday and check the creek crossing yet again (probably for the 6th time), but the ranger beat us to it, and he stopped at our camp first up. He made it in, so we'll make it out. And he was nice enough to keep busy till we'd packed up. And of course, it started to rain again once we'd made the decision to pack our totally dry camper away, so as you can imagine, it's now up outside the house, trying to dry in this intermittent rainy weather we are having.
All in all a great (forced long) weekend. I'm definitely going there again, but I might leave it till there is no forcast for rain ... or I might not!!
