Cania Gorge Weekend

Last weekend, we went camping with friends at Cania Gorge,(Queensland). It is about four and a half hours from home.
We did lots of bushwalking. The first photo is a rock formation we walked to called 'Big Foot'.. obviously... the brochure says 'it features a mysterious large brown image of a four-toed foot on the white sandstone cliff.'

Trailing vines hanging over the sandstone cliffs... we also saw many ferns and orchids growing up high.

We had a snack break here in the shady gorge.
 Treeferns (next photo) and rainforest plants growing along the waterline.
A lovely break away. The weather was kind to us (there was rain at home) we only had a little rain one time overnight. At the campground we had a campfire to sit around at night time. It did get quite chilly late afternoon and in the morning. It was nice to warm your hands around a lovely hot cup of coffee.
I took some handstitching with me to do, but not a lot got done.....
