Sadly for a short while at the beginning of the tour we were harassed by some youngsters in a boat, but they gave up in the end.

    We went to the town of Blinman and I was surprised to see another Emu there, walking across the road as if he owned the town!!! We went to the hotel for lunch (the Pub in the Scrub) as it's affectionately known. In there was information about the Cazneux Tree... a very old gum tree standing...

    Things went a bit downhill after that.... I made even more of a mess of the next few birds and we started on the walk back to the cabins... it became a bit of a trudge in the heat and after a bit both Adrienne and I were falling to bits. So Peter bravely set off on his own to get the car and...

    With still an hour to go before dinner at the hotel and wondering how to fill in the time, I suggested we stop by the river and see if we could get access to it.
