Walpole ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ Sid’s Camping

* This and the next post still follows the northerly direction of the Munda Biddi Trail, but at times, I detour to take a more direct route. Using maps.me as my mapping tool. Let’s see where it takes meย ๐Ÿ”€

After another couple of nights at Tingle All Over and a hearty breakfast, I join the trail heading north. I’m hoping that Kwokralup Beela Hut is open, as it was closed heading south, due to a prescribed burn. The tourist office in Walpole, advised by Parks and Wildlife, say it’s now open. I’ve my doubts. Just a feeling. I’m so in tune!ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

A warm day and flies on the rise. I arrive at the turn off forย Kwokralup Beela Hut, and guess what, it’s closedย โ›”ย OH well … another reason to come back then!

I hook a left and head towards the municipal camp ground of Fernhook Falls. Another 18 km’s or so.

I wave to a farmer loading his cattle or perhaps it’s a friendly cattle rustlerย ๐Ÿฎ

Were the trail narrowed, I’m greeted with the customary face-plant of spiders sitting on their lairs. They, no doubt, don’t wish to be on my face, as much as I don’t wish them too. Obviously, no one on the trail before meย ๐Ÿ•ธ

Arrive at a very quiet Fernhook Falls.

Start the day with a Huntsman spider encamped in my helmet. You leave anything out here, and some critter will want to make it a homeย ๐Ÿ•ท

A very pleasant 22 km’s to one of my favorite huts: Yirra Kartta. The one with the big graniteย ๐Ÿ—ฟ rock.

Only two occasions has there been anyone else at a hut, and again, it’s all mineย ๐Ÿ™‚ย I still put my tent as far way as possible!

Most people (Aussies) consider it too hot to be out this time of yearย ๐ŸŒค The trail is busy/ier through the cooler winter months. Only down side to this time of year, are the flies.ย  They’re sporadic. I find them manageable, considering. The bigger March Fliesย (more commonly known everywhere else as, Horse Flies) are out in abundance too, in December. Aussie way of fooling us Poms! But compared to the more abundant smaller fly, these bastards biteย ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Back to Sid’s Camping and my spot as far away from anyone else. It’s out of season, so not hardโ—

Photos generally shot with an Olympus TG5 – As I found out in editing, the HDR (High Dynamic Range)ย setting is not appropriate for shooting by hand, with moving objects and sunlight. But hey … they’re vibrant!ย ๐Ÿ˜„ย Occasionalย use of aย Google Nexus 6P. All content is protected.
