    Shamrock Gold Mine

    July 7, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    Took a 1k walk off the track to get to an old goldmine, the Shamrock. Good chance their was Irishmen there. LOL.
    Late 1850’s and a whole town developed here over it. By the turn of the century it was all but over and the entire Cania Gorge Valley returned to a grazing homestead.
    The family donated the entire station to the National Parks in 1989.

    To Cania Gorge

    June 23, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Well it was a chilly old morning - 5 or 6C. Brr! As I've been making my way S over the last few days it's become noticeably colder.

    It's 10am now, I've been going 3 hours so I've stopped at a huge grassy rest area for tea and cake (bought a few minutes ago in Biloela) and the temp is up to 22C and the sun feels strong on my skin (appropriate action taken!)

    Later: I'm staying in Cania Gorge because some people I met at Sapphire Caravan Park said it's good for wildlife. I imagined a rather narrow, dark place, but it's much broader than I expected, so nice and sunny.

    I have fresh wallaby poo (I assume, I'm no expert) right outside my campervan door. I call that good news!

    More good news is that I'm only 330 miles from Brisbane. Phew!

    At Cania

    June 24, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    I got my kangas 😊 There seems to be a mum and 2 joeys hanging around the park. I glimpsed them last night, and again this morning. Then I'd just swept out the van, stuck my head outside and they were right next to me! They hopped off a bit before I could grab my camera but we're fine with me creeping up on them.

    This afternoon I did some local walks and this evening I've had the pleasure of a wine tasting put on by the site , followed by a wood-fired pizza. Sleep now!
