First we decided to stay the night in Peterborough and from the get go it was 'welcome to freaky town'!!! From the super loud fellow in the information train (?), to the deaf man who wanted Ruth and I to 'come and see his billiard table', to the bird that weed on me from a tree, we both agreed there was no way we were staying the night there. So on to Ororoo, (try saying that and not sounding like Scooby Doo) wher the car proceeded to break down. Yep, we had picked up a gremlin in freaky town and it was playing its tricks.
This place is incredible. Yesterday we hiked up to the top of the pound (a vast natural oval shaped 'crater' full of arcing silver gums and flowers, animals and a rippling spring) and over the next few days we will use the resort as a base from which to explore the many gorges and indigenous sites in the area. Our camp looks out into a gorgeous dry creek bed and there are kangaroos and emu passing right by us all day long. And the showers rock!!! The boys have found another 'epic' bike jump and we are cooking over the fire most meals.
Love you all and wish you were here!
