    Hughenden, Australia

    August 9, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Today we arrived in Hughenden and went straight to the Flinders Discovery Centre to see the Muttaburrasaurus and other fossils. We found out their theory on how Porcupine Gorge was formed and saw some great fossils. It's hard to believe that this area was once an inland sea! We had a quick look around town and headed back to our accommodation for the night.Read more

    Porcupine, Australia

    August 10, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Today we drove out to Porcupine Gorge. We trekked 1.2km down into the gorge where we explored and enjoyed the serenity of the magnificent sights. We explored the caves and the rock pools and sat on the sandy beach under the trees for lunch. The kids even found shells. It's hard to believe that this was once an ocean! The walk up was hard but Kylie and I finally made it and the girls were up the top cheering us on.Read more
