Once we arrived in Launceston we saw the sign for Cataract Gorge so we thought we would go there first along the way it sure looked like things had changed from my first visit 22 years ago. I went to pay for parking (one of the changes) and there was a ticket already sitting there with another 2 hours left on the clock! Lucky me.
we walked down to the basin and went for as walk over the suspension bridge, Rosalee got scared when the bridge started swinging especially with some assistance, the kids thought it was fun.
As it was lunchtime when we returned we decided to have lunch in the park. Marcella and Amelia enjoyed chasing the lyre birds that were around, the birds were not too worried as they kept coming back.
We finally headed towards civic park and we showed the kids a Bed & Breakfast house we stayed in on our honeymoon trip, 13 years ago. It hadn’t changed much it still had the cute antiques in the window.
Walking in the park I began to get wooried that the monkeys were no longer here, but eventually I found a newly constructed habitat for the monkeys which was much improved than there previous habitat. The baby monkedys were a highlight for all of us.
Elijah wanted to play chess and whilst I wanted to show him how good I was at chess it is sad to say that I was beaten by a chess maestro, or was it that I just wanted to get away from the cranky Dad who was waiting to play with his as he was saying “No good bloody kids”. Elijah will have to wait until the rematch to find out.
