On our last touring day in Australia, we went to our second World Heritage site in as many days. Yesterday, the Great Barrier Reef; today, the Kuranda RainforeStation Nature Park.
Me, I much preferred snorkeling the reef, even with the salt water up the nose. But the rainforest was not without its compensations; to wit, water dragons. Despite their name, they’re an arboreal species; here, however, they were hanging out on the restaurant deck.
Although it’s not much noted in the scientific literature, they’re given to beady stares. At least, I hope they’re so given: I do try not to take things personally.
