For ANZAC Day (kind of like Remembrance Day), I went with a bunch of people from church to one of the local National Parks to go on a bush walk around Purlington Falls. There is a zig zag pathway from the car park at the top to the bottom of the falls. In fact, you can even walk behind the falls. We stopped for lunch at a small fall a bit downstream from the big one. It wasn't a really long hike, but there is a fairly big change in elevaion. By the end of the day I felt it was time to be done hiking. I wasn't the only tired one, as the three guys in my back seat all fell asleep on the way back to Brisbane.
On the drive up the mountain I saw my first wild koala. He was just climbing down a tree. This is a bit unusual for them because the usually spend most of the time sleeping and don't really wake up until the afternoon. (Ah, the tough life of the Koala).
