Sunday in my City

Beautiful weather today.  Not too hot so I ventured out to a local spot that attracts young and old.  The Cataract Gorge is five minutes from the city centre and a stunning spot.


The chair lift is the largest single span chair lift in the world apparently.  
I hadn't been on it for a long time and loved the photo opportunities from above.



Beautiful colours but he didn't want to show off to me.  Their are many peacocks in the reserve.



A cute paddymelon.  I saw four of them in my walk. this poor little fellow was being harrassed by children until I told them to bugger off!


This lady could possibly have the best spot on a hot day!





Too cool to swim, just observers

This area is often packed out.  During winter rains it floods completely 
and you can't even see the shelter over the back.

Wonderful shots of the park. It's very cold where I live, warmer weather and cool water is a long time away.

Cataract Gorge looks even better from your photos than what I remembered from a brief visit 20 years ago. I think I need to go back there again.
