A lovely day in the bush

Spent a lovely day walking in Heathcote National Park. It’s somewhere I’ve never been before, even though it is literally across the road from its bigger and more well-known sister, Royal National Park. So it’s not surprising that the landscape is similar – dry eucalypt forests, sandstone gorges and creeks – but it feels much more off the beaten path.

Spring wildflowers

It was lovely to see the profusion of spring wildflowers, which are surprisingly colourful.

And we found a beautiful spot in Kingfisher Pool. You can even camp nearby.
