154-5412_img-re.jpg

Photos from our first wedding anniversary. We spent it in the beautiful Numinbah Valley in the Gold Coast Hinterland on the New South Wales/Queensland border. The place with the waterfall falling into a cave is known as "Natural Bridge". When we got there I felt a sense of deja vu as I remembered the place from a visit there in April 1986

Photos from our time at Mount Tamborine in the Gold Coast Hinterland---not far from Natural Bridge in the Numinbah Valley. The first photos are taken from the Numinbah Valley with some of me swimming in the waterfall at Natural Bridge. Near the end are photos taken at the "Polish Place Cafe" at Mount Tamborine. The Lorikeets as you can see are very bold and daring with a very partial taste for cream and sugar.

binna_burra_coomera_circuit_sat_29th_august_2009


dscf3127.jpg

Beautiful Binna Burra high up in the Gold Coast Hinterland has 160 Kilometres of walking tracks, some of which stretch to the New South Wales border. This day myself and my mate Adrian from Taiwan walked along the Border track and the Coomera Circuit trail, which follows the Coomera River almost to it's source. It was a beautiful walk, something almost out of a fairy tale, the ultimate highlight being the spectacular Coomera Falls and neighbouring Yarrabilgong Falls where we stopped for lunch. Coomera Falls evoked memories for me of Taroko Gorge in Taiwan and of Zakopane in Poland's Tatra Mountains.

Fifteen days after my bush walk with Adrian to the beautiful Coomera Falls, which partly involved trekking along the Border Track, this time I did my entire walk, namely a 30Km walk from Binna Burra to Wanungara Lookout and back to Binna Burra along the Border Track. Wanungara Lookout is actually just inside New South Wales (NSW), although the only possible way I see to get to it is from the Queensland side of the state border, as getting to it from within NSW would involve scaling a 500 metre or so high cliff which basically marks the state border. Most of the Border Track follows this huge cliff face, and I stopped several times at various lookouts, including Mount Merino for lunch for spectacular views looking south into NSW, with Mount Warning 15Km away in the distance being most prominent. While having lunch, I was only two metres or so from the cliff face, but this offered me magnificent photo opportunities and time to take in and reflect on the awe inspiring panorama of this World Heritage area, on this beautiful early spring day.
