|Tolderodden Conservation Park|
On the first leg of our road trip to Blackdown Tablelands National Park we dropped into Tolderodden Conservation Park. We had intended staying the night here as camping is allowed but it was so early in the day that we ended up having a picnic lunch before moving on. There were plenty of picnic tables and trees provided much needed dappled shade on such a hot day.
We did the walk which is only 700 m return.
Being early spring, there were lots of butterflies and dragonflies about.
|Clearwing Swallowtail, male.|
The main birds in the campground were Cuckoo-shrikes.
