Day two of exploring this vast National Park’s trails and scenic views. Our focus for the morning was the Prince Harry Cliff Walk. Once again we had grey clouds but we avoided rain and flies as we walked up and down the trail along the edge (great paths for the most part NO railings or support to keep one from falling over the edge-so pay attention!). Scenic World is a tourist spot with cable cars, trams and the worlds steepest passenger train (which we had planned to ride UP, but a twisting of an ankle on the way to breakfast prevented the walk down of over 1,000 steps), so we stuck to the cliff path.

My favorite siting was a crimson roselle along the path hidden in the bushes. I was just about to take a fabulous photo when a group of tourists passed with loud conversation, scaring him away :(

After our hike, we stopped for lunch at the Yellow Deli not realizing is was the "hippie" spot. It was the only place in town with a wait to eat..after we snagged a table and perused the special "energy" bars made of all things green, we had a delicious reuben sandwich and headed to catch the 2:15 train back to Sydney for the birthday celebration.
