Is this not the prettiest kookaburra ever? He looks so soft and fluffy. 🙂 While in Mulambin we did the Bluff Point walk. We’d read you could get a 360 degree view of the area and see turtles swimming in the ocean. Sounds good! The trail does a circuit and we soon found out it’s one of those popular fitness tracks. You can choose your direction and do the steep part first or last. We opted to do the steep part first. See all the steps? During our walk we were lapped more than once by various people doing their workouts. Doing the steep part first meant that turtle lookout was our first stop. The lookout has a really beautiful view. Breathtaking. The sign said the turtles are there year-round so we had our eyes peeled. It didn’t take long! Look, there’s a turtle! Really, that speck that looks like a floating rock is a turtle. See? All zoomed in and you can see him. We saw a few turtles and watched for awhile as they rode the waves. Well, most of us were watching the turtles. Some of us were more interested in sticks. One last look at that beautiful view… Then on to the next lookout. Or outlook as the case may be. (Why was the first one a lookout and this one an outlook???) (You just scrolled back up to check the picture of the turtle lookout sign, right? I had to.) 😀 Here’s a view of the beach, looking back the way we’d come. It was interesting to see how different the landscape was on the other side of the road. So dry, and there were even people riding dirt bikes over there. The view from the summit. That’s the beach where we rode our bikes! From the summit you could see the caravan park we were staying in, tucked in behind the housing subdivision. Our caravan is almost smack in the middle of this picture. We enjoyed this park, it was really packed but we had an unpowered site out the back where it wasn’t as crowded. They had an outdoor cinema where they played family movies each night, great fun to get our jackets and winter hats on and brave the cold. Those Queensland winters, you know. It was all downhill from there. (I’m terrible, aren’t I?) We saw this lovely green ant nest in a tree. So cool how they stick the leaves together. And, um, a log. I thought it looked pretty and I have the camera. 😉 We saw a few termite mounds in trees. We read that birds will use old ones as nests. This guy just turned two. He looks closer to three in this picture, doesn’t he? When we got back this little guy had a fall into a bicycle wheel. He tripped and slammed his forehead against part of the tyre, not sure whether it was a spoke or the centre. Never fear, after a cuddle he was ready to accompany the others to the front desk for some ice cream. He did have to be locked out of the van until he was finished. He didn’t mind.
