|We took a cruise around Lake Barrine and saw a lot of different wildlife|
|Up close and personal with another water dragon|
|He was looking for food|
We also stopped by a huge curtain fig tree and a waterfall.

We also got a tour of Paronella Park, a 13-acre park built by a Spaniard. Jose Paronella moved to Australia and saved for 11 years before purchasing land to build his dream castle. After 6 years of building, he opened Paronella Park to the public in 1935.

Our last stop where pretty much everyone (but us) swam was The Boulders.
|The water was super clear|
Paronella Park looks really cool! what was the inside like?ReplyDelete
Sasch, there wasn't a lot of an inside - the castle was just a shell of a building since he built it himself with local materials that wasn't able to sustain over time. But, you would have liked it because he built his own hydroelectric power plant that was able to power the entire facility!Delete
Some of those photos look like Lost!ReplyDelete
You're right, it kind of does! Good thing we weren't actually lost.Delete
