Natural Bridge, Springbrook National Park – the Scenic Rim, Queensland.

This post is of the spectacular ‘Natural Bridge’ feature within Springbrook National Park – itself within the fabulous Scenic Rim region of Queensland. It requires a short and gentle scenic hike that is well worth taking.

At the beginning of the trail there is a junction: turn left and walk the circuit in a clockwise direction for the easiest hike (take steps down rather than ascend). Here is the junction point showing the “left” option…

Day 8 – Fiordland and Cascade Creek, New Zealand – December 2015

Ah, to have more time to explore and be awed by Fiordland National Park! And a revisit in late winter/early spring is in order too.
We ventured along the Te Anau – Milford Highway, to hike the Key Summit, a day-hike portion of the Routeburn Track, beginning at The Divide. Spectacular!

Here is a portion of the view from the end of Key Summit.

Driving into Fiordland National Park in the morning we noticed a field of lupins and thought that it would be worth a look on the way out that evening. What a beautiful scene it turned out to be!

This is Cascade Creek, along the Te Anau-Milford Hwy.

Posting #12 of my road trip from Fremantle to Kununurra, Western Australia.

The 12th and final posting of my trip up to Kununurra and back!
This is a small collection of images from a brief detour to visit the wonderful Tunnel Creek National Park.

The view as you near Tunnel Creek along Leopold Downs Road. This is part of the Napier Range: Devonian reef from 350 – 375 million years ago.

Underneath the bluff in the following picture is ‘Tunnel Creek’ – a 750 meter erosion tunnel through the Napier Range, eroded by a creek. The tunnel is purported to be the oldest cave system in Western Australia!

This is a day-use park only; this is my trusty 1984 Toyota Hilux in the parking area – only a very short hike to the cave entrance.
