Returning to Wakerley, we watched a little television - the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, and then the Cricket before we had a quick lunch and left just after 1 pm for a trip to Mt Tamborine, in the hinterland above the Gold Coast.
On the way we visited Bamboo Down Under (I am doing some research for something I am writing on Bamboo for uni). It is such a wonderful place. We could spend a whole day there.
There is so much bamboo growing and there is a maze, a bamboo tunnel and several places to meditate among the bamboo.
