Saturday 25th October 2014

After a solid sleep we were awake bright & early, we returned to echo point where Prince William & Kate stopped to admire the same views, Ian took a path to one of the 3 Sisters rocks.

Advertised as a 1 hour return adventure, boasting over 900 steps!  Not for me thank you. He returned puffing after a mere 10 minutes, having made it about 100 steep crumbling steps..

Breakfast at the Mountain Cafe on main street was delightful.

Off to "Scenic World " ( not phoenix world Hollie) Sounding more like a theme park , than a set of Tropical rain forest walks, linked together by a series of cable cars & trains.

The first cable car, complete with glass floor, taking us across the gorge for a view of the 3 Sisters from the opposite side.

We walked to another spot dedicated to Kate & William who came to the area on their recent tour, via some pretty water falls.

We saw the falls from every angle!

We walked round the Gorge to get the " Worlds Steepest train " Complete with adjustable seat to offer a ride which could be laid back or"cliff hanger" Which gave the impression that you were about to tumble vertically into your fellow passengers below!

More view points & a fabulous thunder storm.

We arrived at Auntie Dee's, She & Colin gave us a tour of their cosy home.

Dinner at The Springwood Sports Club with a selection of their great & welcoming family.

After a smashing meal & a good catch up, we waved goodbye to Colin & Delia, With promises to see them & their children next time they come to England.

After another packed day , we are ready for our beds..

Goodnight all xxxx
