Cape Hillsborough National Park



We all took a walk up Finch Hatton Gorge to the Araluen Falls. Had lunch as the Goanas eyed us up and a Kookaburra swooped down, took Owens lunch out of his hands and then flew off!

We left the guys in Mackay, said goodbye, but hopefully we'll see them again soon. We drove to Cape Hillsborough National Park which is a great spot to see the Kangaroos on the beach at sunrise. Had an early night as we have to get up at 5am!

We got up in time for sunrise the next day and went straight to the beach but couldn't find a kangaroo anywhere. Headed back to the campsite a bit disappointed and there they all were hopping around the campsite! We even got to stroke one which had been hand-reared by someone at the campsite.

Seeing as we were up early we decided to get a good bit of distance covered, and just had a long day driving in the van to
Gladstone.
