Tuesday 24th May 2016


A full day out sight-seeing was my plan.

We had morning tea at Manning Lookout, with views of Kangaroo Valley, & Common Leafy Greenhood orchids! A walk to Fitzroy Falls, with more Greenhoods & other orchid basal leaves spotted. Then a long wait at the visitors centre for one of the rangers to print off the orchids of the area list for me.

We continued on to Robertson for a very nice pie for late lunch. And the final stop for the day was at Belmont Falls; this stop was without orchids though.

Back at Bertie, in Kangaroo Valley, we had a cuppa with a vanilla slice & raspberry custard tart, purchased from the very nice bakery.

Despite my bragging about my whale spotting, and also finding a male lyrebird for Varena to photograph, I could not manage to spot any orchids. Luckily, Varena found some, even though I had walked right past them.
