Still raining in Airlie Beach…
The rain has really set in, so when there was a small break in the weather we took the opportunity to go walking in Conway National Park, situated between Airlie Beach and Shute Harbour. Considering the amount of water that has fallen from the sky, there was surprisingly little in the creeks we crosssed on our walk.

The bottle tree stores water in it’s fibrous trunk.
These stunning fungi were growing on a fallen tree trunk in the forest.
The vines were twisted and contorted around this tree in Conway National Park, almost looks like a python wrapped around the trunk.
When we got back to the caravan park, we found some birds out enjoying the damp weather…
A pair of curlews live in the little creek area at the camp ground. You can hear their eerie calls in the dark of night.

Finally, a couple of photos of the beach area in Airlie Beach. The sun actually showed through for a few minutes!
As soon as the sun came out, people came out too to enjoy the pool area on the Airlie Beach foreshore.
Windy, but the sun came out for a little while
