He was very knowledgable and patient. We really enjoyed this day looking at God's work.
Here our guide was explaining about how some eucalyptus trees will shed their bark.
During the day we also got to go on a glow worm tour. They only shine in the dark, so we went to a made cave that a tourist trap made to trick the glow worms into shinning all the time.
We couldn't take pictures in the cave, so this quick video I found on you tube will have to do.
If you still want more, click on the link, to some images on the internet. Remember those Glow Worm dolls that were popular when I was a kid? It was kind of neat to see what those were patterned after. They are only found in Australia and New Zealand.
We really had a great time getting to see rain-forests all around the Brisbane area. We went to the Tamborine Mountain, Natural bridge, Springbrook National Park, Numinbah Valley, Cedar Creek Rockpools, Glow Worm Caves, and Curtis Falls. We truly saw a lot in one day.
Of course Mamma and I wore our Chacos, our guide warned us we needed to check in between our toes for leeches.
