Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk

The start of this year has been suprisingly busy & as a result, it had been a while since we last used our baby carrier. We decided to get motivated & take a day trip to Mt. Tamborine & 'piggyback' Ebony, on the Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk. We didn't however, time it all that well & ended up arriving in the middle of a typical, hot Aussie summers day... I'm talking a thirty-six degree day at least, with humidity. It was bloody hot. Fortunately, little sunlight could penetrate the thick canopy of trees inside the rainforest & we were suprisingly very comfortable, throughout the 40 minute walk. Ebony loved being snuggled into her daddy's back as she pointed eagerly to all the 'teeees' (aka trees) & 'tweet tweets' (birds). Fourty minutes of 'woOOow, teeees' & 'tweet tweets', challenges you to come up with different responses other than "oh yes Ebony a tree", or 'that is a beautiful tree", "what a great big tree" or "yes I can hear/see a bird". The lovely old couple that were following us & cooing at the cute little girl in the baby carrier, soon found their 'second gear', after Ebony's first five unrelentless minutes of excitment, over how many trees & birds there were & soon overtook us... Ebony was completley thrilled over natures' fauna & flora & was out to it by the time we got to the car. Overall, mission accomplished! This is definitely a beautiful part of Australia & should not be missed. I love sharing moments like these with my family, I can hardly believe myself, how much beauty there is to be seen. Can you imagine a toddler taking it all in for the first time? Ebony was blown away.
