There had been very little rain for weeks, so, we thought - now is the time! We booked our getaway at Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodges up on the Atherton Tableland, west of Cairns. It was great . . . but . . . of course, it rained.
Every time we got into the car the sun came out. Every time we got out of the car to do some bushwalking the clouds came back and it rained. I took very few spectacular photos because the weather was so hazy, but I did get one or two that I'm pleased with. The scenery was breathtaking. The wildlife was (mostly)more cute than wild and I'll share some photos of them next time.
World Heritage Area and we feel very fortunate to have it only a few hours drive from home.
Even though the air temperature hovered around 25 Centigrade, that water is icy cold because it comes from mountain streams. I swam in the heated pool back at the lodge.
