Meet the neighbours

We’ve been spotted

Mother and child


This evening as we rounded a corner on the way down to the river for our stroll we disturbed dozens of wallabies. They all popped up on high alert. I just managed to whip out the camera and take a shot of this small group before, with a bound, they had all disappeared into the bush.

Remember I mentioned that this campground, Bivouac Junction, was not crowded? Well that was Friday. Today it is the weekend and by lunch-time the families had started to arrive. Tents, pop-up campers of all shapes and sizes were spreading like a rash across the park. Children, dogs and frisbees hurtled around. Fishing rods, canoes and balls appeared. Smoke drifted across the park as the BBQ fires were lit. Soon the aroma of sausages, steak and onions filled the air. The happy sound of laughter and children at play while parents sat around, relaxing with a “cold one” after the working week.

This is quite different to most camp grounds we have stayed in, usually it is the grey nomads and caravan travellers we come across. We loved being among this happy crowd, it relaxed us.

This is a perfect place for families, plenty of room to let the children run free. A river to fish, canoe or swim in. Even a small sandy beach at the edge of the river bank. To top it off the weather is perfection. Lovely warm, sub-tropical temperatures with a gentle breeze to keep the humidity at bay.


How good does it get…

We have one more day of relaxation here then it will be an early start on Monday to take Matilda in for her op…

  6. How comfortable does that hammock look ….. 🙂


  7. Are those… kangaroos???? How cute!!!! :O


    • Wallabies are a smaller version of the kangaroo. There are quite a number of different species of both kangaroo and wallaby. Yes they are cute. Look at mothers big brown eyes….


      • So they’re basically the same species, just smaller and cuter.. And they just run around and nobody owns them, right?? Australia seems like a perfect place, haha!!


        • Kangaroos are actually a pest in some areas of Australia. You can also buy kangaroo meat from the butcher and some supermarkets, it is very lean and fine grained. Australia is the only country that eats it’s national emblem….
