Mossman Gorge

The next morning we dutifully headed off to Mossman Gorge.  It'll just be more rainforest I thought but as the Things to Do list had it as a Must See I figured we have better go anyway.

The star of this show is not the rainforest, it's the gorge.  Big boulders and crystal clear rapidly moving water.  I was disappointed that in the photographs it looks like just a rocky creek -- I am hoping the last shot gives you a sense of scale, they are very big rocks in that creek,


  1. Definitely my kind of place. Such beautiful tropical spots!

    1. It sure is tropical. I loved it in winter but I am sure I would find it quite unbearable in the summer time. The winter is also the dry season so the humidity is low.

  2. Love that second shot, that boulder in the foreground and the colour.

    1. Peter, this gorge as one of the highlights of the whole trip. I was so disappointed that that photos just don't capture how beautiful it was. I agree the second shot does it best.

  3. It looks like a lovely place even though it's a major tourist attraction.

    1. Yes it is a major tourist attraction managed by the indigenous community. It is a beautiful facility and very well run.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
