I had a great time

It was a perfect holiday. We had wonderful weather for the entire trip: warm, sunny and dry. And now we are home it is cold and wet and yesterday it snowed.

We drove over 4000 km on this trip. We headed north to O'Reilly's in Queensland via the inland and came home via the coast.

This was our view at O'Reilly's:

While we were up there we did several walks through the rain forest. We did an 18 km walk along a creek

and saw magnificent trees,

and numerous waterfalls.

We had a glorious stay in Belongil Beach with the river on the one side and the ocean on the other.

Sunset on the river.

And a great place to view the river.

Bliss wouldn't you say? I'll show you some of the wonderful birds we saw in my next post.

I am so jealous, what a wonderful looking trip!
I would love to walk in that rain forest or sit by the river. Maybe one day....

Love your pictures and what a great place. The woods look like Lothlorien from the Lord of the Rings.
