10 - 11 October 2014 - Dorrigo to Mudgee

We left Dorrigo and drove through wonderful scenery with green mountains which slowly transformed into gently rolling hills. We stopped at Ebor for coffee and buttermilk scones at the Fusspots Cafe and bought a cute dress for Kiara. We then headed out to see the Ebor falls where we walked along the gorge overlooking the two sections of the falls and the river.

The next stop was Wollomombi Falls which is a huge gorge but only little water so not so spectacular. Continuing our drive we started to look for a place to stay the night and ended up at the Moonbi Lookout halfway down a steep pass. While setting up the caravan for the night we discovered a stowaway in the form of a large Huntsman spider! We photographed him and then moved him into the bush hoping he had no friends with him.

Next day we headed out again with the Blue Mountains our goal and one more stop in between. We decided to stay in Mudgee and got the last spot in the caravan park because everyone had moved to Mudgee to avoiding the Bathurst V8 Supercar race at Mount Panorama. We walked along the river before having drinks and watching the King Parrots flying around the trees and the aviary nearby. We also spotted a possum in the tree nearby in a hollow log placed there to attract these cute wild marsupials.
