We tried some ziplining while we were in Eungella National Park. Don’t be fooled by the photos above…Sam is just on the practice zip line where you learn the knack of it. The real deal is 50 feet up and gives you fantastic views out over the rainforest, and has you right up amongst the resting fruit bats – so close you can see their babies clinging on for dear life, and probably closer than our lack of rabies vaccination probably warranted.
Unfortunately, we had the dubious distinction of being the folks who clipped on the main line just as Northern Queensland’s rainy season started, so we’re a little short on photos (and, indeed, it took a day for our camera to dry out and start working again, although it seems to have recovered). But it was still great fun, and we got a comprehensive tour of edible flora into the bargain.
