It was a very hilly day. There was no flat terrain.

I made it.

It costs $15 per vehicle to enter. Bicycles are free! This is a nice park with lots of facilities and activities. It has a koala board walk. 

I love koalas.

I'm like this koala in the mornings. All tucked up and warm, not wanting to wake up.

A tiny flower.

It could be a melaleuca. 

I made camp and a friendly black duck came over and said hi.

This National Park even has a pub. And the pub has two jumping castles! Amazing.

This is an Australian ringneck.

Today's tree pic is a massive gum. Its great to see large trees again.
