NSW Camping Trip Day 14

1 March 2016

We packed up our camp at Booti Booti, bought more supplies in Forster and started back to Gloucester River Campground, hoping the two days of fine weather had reduced the flow at the fords. I had hoped to get some close-ups of goannas but for some reason we didn't  see much of them after the first day.

The Gloucester River Campground in Barrington Tops has lots of short green lawn but not much of it is level.

The river runs past just across the road.

As soon as we arrived, these fairy wrens were hopping around us, even going inside the car. They are tiny birds.

To add some excitement, we had the air force flying over periodically (FA/18s?)

Late in the afternoon, we sat by one of the pools hoping to see a platypus, but had no luck.

I had a couple of dips in this pool. It's not very deep and the bottom is uneven but is very refreshing.
