... lookout getting an amazing view of Coles harbour. Then as we make our way over the hill we are welcomed by Wineglass Bay- although I think the person that named it had a little too much from the wineglass at the time cause it looks more like a jellyfish top than a wineglass to me!

... white beaches and desolate highlands. We walked for 6 hours, simply amazed at the sites and wildlife, even Lotus who growing up in Tanzania is a bit of a beach snob, was amazed at the light blue sea touching the white sand, and jumped in, which meant I was dragged in too! I must admit it was a great way to cool off in the middle of our hike. That night we headed to the bay of fires, camped on the beach, looking forward to an early morning swim, however ...
... to Russell Falls and the nearby Tall Trees. It’s pretty wet as we get there, so it’s on with the Gore Tex (another first for Australia!) then we hike up to the falls themselves. On the way we pass some of the 'tall trees’ – tall swamp gum trees which genuinely are utterly huge! The hike is quite nice, and we’re also pleasantly surprised by the falls themselves – maybe it’s the current wet weather, but they’re much ...
