On the rails of the boardwalk were several little statues at eye level,
including this one.
The twisting roots hung overhead as we walked on the boardwalk in the
Barron Gorge National Park. This area extends from the coastal lowlands
to the elevated regions of the Atherton Tableland
and features rugged mountain scenery, tropical rainforests, diverse wildlife and a fascinating history.
The park lies within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.
The park is part of the traditional lands of the Djabugandji Bama
(local Aboriginal people)
who maintain a close spiritual connection with this country.
Before Europeans arrived, Bama traversed this country, developing trails
linking the coast to the uplands. These historic trails now form sections
of a walking track network. The last time we visited this area we met up
with one of the Aboriginal keepers of the area and he talked about the history.
Photo taken in the club rooms of the "Paradise Palms Golf Club" not that
far from the resort where we had lunch. The golf club had magnificent
gardens, but I'm saving those photos for the other gallery because none
fit with the letter "S". We called into these rooms twice, the first
time to see what they were like and have a nice cooling drink; the
second time bringing two cams so I could photograph the gardens, this time
we had a delightful afternoon tea.
Giving an idea of how tall the canopy of trees/palms were as we walked around
the various paths of the garden surrounding the resort.
A lovely light lunch - my serve.
This was between the resort and beach and I think used for outdoor activity on
moonlit nights and/or days of celebration or just a humble picnic if the heavens open.
Standing on the beach enjoying the views, photo taken from the Resort as
we all went to see what the beach was like.
Another photo taken in the Kewarra Resort, so many photo opportunities here
and more to follow using the letter "S" for the month of September.
Another section of the swimming pool, a sort of mini grotto that caught my eye.
Photo taken at the resort, the swimming pool was constantly refreshed by this
series of waterfalls.
Occasionally along the pathway one came across a few steps as seen here.
One of many on the various boardwalks we did on our recent holiday in
the tropics of Australia.
