    Guy fawkes

    July 15, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    We continued from Nymboida down the Waterfall Way - a route of over 100km that took in waterfalls at national parks through a windy, undulating, pot-holed, tree-lined and occasionally narrow road. We hadn't planned any stops but we do try and change driver every hour. When my time was up and Ben was due to take over we were atva signpost of 1km from Guy Fawkes River National Park and the Ebor Falls so we stopped in.

    This double waterfall over a huge tree-covered valley was a brilliant sight to see and the walk between the upper and lower falls were a welcome break from the hour on the road.

    The journey took in extensive cattle country - undulating fields with livestock and very few houses or villages. Sadly we passed a couple of dead kangaroo at the roadsides which was both dishearteneing but also made for somewhat concerning road conditions.

    Ebor Falls

    Further on on the Waterfall way there was another Waterfall- which surprise! Very nice to look at the 115meters of the "Ebor Falls". But this time there are two drops!

    Trout Hatchery & More Waterfalls

    November 23, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Checking out the weather this morning we were a bit apprehensive about predicted winds of up to 52km an hour. We thought we would probably not travel very far today as we didn’t want to risk being up on the open and windy mountains further along the Waterfall Way.

    First place we visited today was Dutton Trout Hatchery, one of two NSW government hatcheries where they breed both rainbow and brown trout. We got to see first hand how they breed the fish, stripping the females of eggs and the males of sperm and creating fertilized eggs that hatch into ‘fry’. It’s a very labor intensive process but one that has definitely increased the numbers of trout, that are then released into waterways across NSW where many people can enjoy the sport of fishing. We walked around the various ponds, feeding pellets to the fish. Cadbury seemed to get a kick out of watching the trout jump about to catch the food. At the end of our visit we bought some delicious looking smoked trout, some of which would no doubt be consumed later today during happy hour!

    After our hatchery visit, and talking to the manager there who lives in the next town up the mountain (Dorrigo) we decided definitely to stay put and not attempt to tow the caravan there until tomorrow. We drove a few km up the road to Ebor Falls, where we explored both the upper and lower falls before driving to the Sports and Recreation Ground nearby for the night.

    We enjoyed happy hour with cheese, trout, crackers and red wine sitting in the afternoon sun, trying to stay out of the wind. Eventually the biting wind won and we retreated inside. Time to cook dinner and get cosy for the evening.

    Good night from Ebor on the Waterfall Way xx
