Our great Aussie outdoor adventures continued in the Eungella National Park in Queensland. In the Aboriginal language Eungella, or "Doon-gell-a", supposedly means "land where cloud lies over mountains" -- probably a fitting description, though on the day we visited the park it was a beautiful sunny day with nary a cloud in the sky. Our hikes through the park afforded us contact with many wonderous creatures including an echidna, certainly a highlight of our hikes in Aussie land.


Ain't he cute?                Aww, how cute...                beautiful sights were everywhere in the park             Even these parasites look nice   

See the black snake?                We didn't see a single platypus at the pool                But there were several turtles
