Back to updates after being away! Now I've got some serious catching up to do and ever more photos to post. Let's see if I can pick up the pace!
Outside the cave and further back along the dirt track was a thermal spring in the forest, where warm water bubbles up into the cooler creek. If you were quiet and patient, we were told, you might see platypuses here. We were both, but didn't. A few days later in Latrobe, with more quiet patience, we were rewarded with sightings of the shy animals in a lazy river outside town.
