Spontanous trip to Cania Gorge

One morning after several hours of doing the most mundane of tasks. Laundry & spring cleaning ugh! I looked at Migs & said “lets get outta here!” I’d already had Cania Gorge on the list for a camping trip but without all the gear we’d put it off. But no more waiting. I called up the caravan park, booked us in & packed the car in under an hour. We were on our way!

Happy to go on a quick trip

Where we stayed had a great water park & slide. Being in low season we were lucky enough to have the place nearly all to ourselves.

Once Phoenix saw the slide we could not keep her away!

One of the lovely things about this place is the wildlife. Not only do they have wallabies & kangaroos roaming freely but also every afternoon they do free bird feeding where Cockatoos, Rainbow Lorikeets, King Parrots & Galahs come flocking in the hundreds. And though wild are quite friendly & happy to eat out of your hand.

Seeing as Australia has some amzing exotic birds it was quite a wonderful experience for the kids to see them up close & personal.

Gorgeous!

Little D asked Peter alot of questions & it was a great learning experience.

Friendly little critters

“They’re pecking my head mum!”

Strolling in the late afternoon we found something to keep the kids occupied & quite happy. What great way to get the last of their energy out before bed!

We did have plans to hike Dripping Rock & Dragon Cave but since the floods that side of the gorge was closed off. Fortunately we found another lovely walk on the other side & that sated our need of getting out of the burbs to smell the fresh air.

We’d been promising the kids to roast marshmallows & the campsite provided everything we needed. We got the kids to collect kindling from the bush & got to work.. a lovely man from across the campground saw us struggling with the larger logs & came over with an axe to help.

Fire & sugar rush! Should I be worried?

The next morning we went on a mission to find the wallabies & lucky for us we found them!

They tried to get up close, but with no food to offer these guys were having none of it

A little dancing & live music that night in the main hall where they served up a true blue Aussie roast. The kids had a ball even though we were surrounded by grey nomads & not another kid in sight.

The next morning they offered free campfire billy tea & home made damper. We got in early so Little D could learn all about how its done, & Peter was happy to oblige, answering all his questions & more.

I get to have billy tea like Bush Tucker Man!

There is still so much more to see in Cania Gorge  & a camping spot in the national park by the rock pools that is still on our list. One thing at a time though!
