Maleny a place to relax

MelanyAlign Center

We had 4 days in Maleny which was lovely such a wonderful part of the world.
The weather turned cooler and I had to get my jeans out again.


While walking to a waterfall this fellow had Tony running like a girl.
An Australian Water Dragon I think.



Look at those claws.

Mary Cairncross Park 26/8/10

We spent a morning walking through Mary Cairncross Reserve it was an amazing walk. The trees were so large and tall they make Tony who isn't that tall look even smaller.

Thank you for all your comments I do appreciate them but I am struggling with the replies as the email is set up differently on this computer. It is very laborious opening and relying and I am not sure why I have tried changing the setting but to no avail.
I will deal with them when I get home.

Hey! Forget the emails! It's a holiday.

Oh I love Mary Cairn Cross park. I grew up in Brisbane and spent many happy days picnicing there and wandering around the forest. I haven't been there for about 20 years I think. Thanks for the photos. So many memories!

What a lovely place! Interesting fauna, that's for sure. What is a padelmelon? (did I spell that right? probably not!) It looks like a kangaroo rat or something.

Take care,
Susan in Texas

Beautiful, beautiful pictures Leanne. I thought at first the statue of the little girl was real.
Love those trees too. I have a screensaver with those kind of trees in it.
