More delights

There are rainforest walks with waterfalls and one with this magical curtain fig tree.  Blue crater lakes.  Small towns, one with a terrific 2nd hand bookshop where I stocked up on reading supplies and even a Royal Hotel! There seems to be no end to the delights of this beautiful region.

Royal Hotel, Herberton


  1. I'm in awe at the top shot! Love it when nature outdones itself.

    1. I remember this fig from when I saw it as a kid but I found it quite astounding this time around. I guess I had forgotten how big it was.

  2. Great camouflage shot. I can just make out the crab. Aren't those Curtain Figs amazing trees. A super Royal for your collection. It sure is a beautiful part of our country.

    1. I loved it. Being higher than the coast and inland it has a nice climate but I am wondering how hot it gets in summer.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
