    Mt Kaputar National Park

    December 14, 2021 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    2 campgrounds, we stayed at Bark Hut. The other is Dawsons Springs. Well set out sites, plenty of fire pits, BYO timber, clean amenities with open ceiling, clean free BBQ. Walked to the Euglah Rock lookout & waterfall first thing in the morning (after a coffee of course!). We drove to the summit, stopping at 2 lookouts on the way, parked and then hiked the Dawson Springs Loop trail and the summit track. Dawson Springs campground is nice also with cabins to rent. Came across 3 rangers putting up a sign. And a family going for a hike/ride also. Not many people around...maybe because it's mid-week and not school holidays? Absolutely cracker of a day...blue skies and a slight breeze. Forecast is 27 degrees. Car went well on the drive here, impressed so far. Mt Kapatur NP only has an unsealed Rd entering the park for maybe 1-2 kms then it's sealed...alot of the walking tracks are sealed as well which we've not seen before. Plenty of flowers springing up due to all the recent rain. And lots of wildlife- saw some Wallabies and goats on the way in yesterday evening. Wasn't quick enough to get a photo though! Had a fire last night which was nice...making the most of it as not many places allow fires after this. Loving all the new gadgets Pete has organised- headlamps (so good for setting up in the dark last night), walkie-talkies (which I've been taking to the loo with me), Bluetooth selfie stick (from Aldi for $29) and the impact gun which brings the stabiliser legs down without any effort and so much quicker! 2nd night of steak and salad so did something different and sliced up the steak and marinated in sriracha sauce. Made for a nice meal 😋Read more
