There’s no lighter. There’s no stove. We’re camped in a empty forest in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast. I looked through all our food… It seems that bananas and bread will be our menu for the next 3 days with red wine (hmm guess doesn’t sound bad!)
We pitched the tent in the dark, and let me tell you I found quite a few  rocks during the night! From wild pigs near our tiny tent to flashlights moving around- I was just thinking on sleeping with the light on.
In the daytime, The Blackall Range is quite something anytime but pitching your tent in this national park, you’ll be happy in the morning. Guaranteed.
A small patch along the creek and across the bunya pine forest leads you to the trekking trails of the Great Walk (53 Km). This is a perfect spot for trekking lovers.
From the tent we barely need to move to put our feet in the creek. The scenic Blackall Range is a landscape created by volcanoes and sculpted by water over millions of years. Rich basalt soils and escarpment waterfalls cascades make the delight for Trekkers. There’s plenty of trails with different levels and duration. We took the Guerella waterfalls path, 18 km of things to take in- from wildlife, bush food (with only bananas in our tummy we did keep an eye for any food!), and the rainforest itself.
I am really excited for more trekking- it’s so great to head to the mountains and find amazing waterfalls and be a mile away from phones, computers…
