Eungella Day Two

After a refreshing early morning swim in the swimming hole we can’t imagine ever using a chlorinated swimming pool again. We then left the Platypus Bushcamp and drove up the torturously steep road to the village of Eungella. The campsite there has unparalleled views right down the valley. We spent the day walking and touring around and then visited Broken River where platypus can also be found. Again we had no luck but vowed to return that evening and try again.

After checking in at the Eungella Campsite we found Sandy and Liz already settled in there. We then drove back to Broken River at dusk and were thrilled to see two platypus happily feeding. There is lots more we could tell you about these rare creatures but if you’re interested ‘google it’.

The next day we all set off for a 5km walk through some wonderful tropical rainforest heading for the ‘Wheel of Fire’ which is another natural swimming hole at Finch Hatton Gorge. It is a steep climb but so worthwhile. It is a beautiful swimming spot with a waterfall tumbling in at one end. If you’ve never swum in places like this put it on your ‘to do’ list for the future.

On the way back down we visited another swimming spot then had lunch on the decking at a creek side cafe in the valley and then again said our goodbyes to Sandy and Liz. They are staying a while longer but we have to keep moving. We’re still a long way from Brisbane.
