Our next adventure in Australia was two days camping int the Wollemi National Park. It is the second largest national park in New South Wales, and contains some of the largest wilderness area of mountain and forest. It lies 129 kilometres northwest of Sydney and forms part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. Our camping site was at an especially attractive part called Dunn's Swamp (see a film about the swamp here).

that woke us at dawn with its cackling laughing cries...
And the charming Flame Robin
When darkness falls, Simon replaces his binoculars with a head-torch
and prepares a barbeque of lamb chops and bacon.
Vegetables were represented by fried onion rings.
