No snakes in there, right? Eve ate from the Tree of Knowledge and it all hit the fan from there on out - all because of a sssnake. 😛

But you're in Australia. Don't they have some of the creepiest AND largest insect critters? Wouldn't want one of them dropping in to join me. <SHUDDER>

It’s over an hour’s drive away but is amazing. Felt like being in fairy tale land and the food is excellent. Local gin too yum. We combine it with a hike down a Ravine des Casoars.
