Cania Gorge:: Part 4 - Bushwalking

Now there's two reasons to go to Cania Gorge.  One is for the fishing as the dam is on the other side of the Gorge, the second is for the bushwalks.

We love getting out and about and going for a bushwalk and the ones at the gorge were great for the kids.  There were some reasonable walks that the kids could easily do without getting too tired and grumpy and we got to see a variety of things including creeks....

...caves (this one's the Dragon's cave)...

...and plenty of amazing formations in the sandstone.


We got to check out the views when we walked to the top of the escarpment below.

Then there were some more caves to explore.  This one's the Bloodwood cave..... called because it has the roots of a bloodwood tree growing down into a corner of it.

There's plenty of interesting logs and other things to look at on the way.

One walk started at the place where we stayed and just 50 metres away from the main building (you can see it peeking through the trees)...

was Big Foot.  This was a natural picture of a foot on one of the sandstone walls.  The kids loved seeing this one and being so close to camp meant we could come for a quick walk to look at it when they were getting a bit full-on (which was most of the time!)

I just loved the difference in rainforest, to open forest in a small area.

Some of the shapes made by the rocks, not to mention the peep holes, caves and paths through the rocks was pretty amazing too.  We could let our imaginations run wild and pretend lots of things out there with the kids.

So even though it rained a lot of the time and we had to come home early (more on that another time), we still got to get out and about and see some of the beautiful things that Cania Gorge has to offer.
