文旦柚The mural town, just by on our way from downtown Launceston to the Cradle Hill, was a place to visit to show the award winning work of the mural competition over the years, and the paintings of Chen Shun were interesting to see, and also the work of Chen Shun
文旦柚The Cradle Hill is worth a visit but it must take a whole day to get more interesting, this time from the camp at 9am, first to the mural town and then to the Cradle Hill, it was already over 14:00 pm, cloudy day, immediately cold, it was dark, not enough to enjoy
wxx1026The national park is relatively large and there are several caves. We went to Malakupa cave, because this cave has an underground river, which is not tiring to walk, and there are also glowing worms. It is said that the stalactites in the cave are still growing slowly. When the staff said: When it is dark, please close your eyes and turn off all the lights. When you look up, you can see the glowing worms full of blue fluorescence on the top of the cave in the dark. These glowing worms do not fly. Like the ones in Spring Creek National Park, they are close relatives of the blue fireflies in New Zealand.
jb2***14I deliberately drove more than 500 kilometers to see the glowing worm. The cave itself is not big, but it is well protected. The small group was brought in by the guide, walked a section and turned on the lights, introduced meticulously, causes, recent events such as flooding, submerged water level The newly washed fossils of marine organisms are close to ancient times in South China, so the geology is similar. The growing rock pillars are estimated to be only 3-5mm thin, but they are 1m to 2m long. He also explained that Tasmania is geologically stable. Earthquakes are few and small. I saw cave spiders and glowing worms are not allowed to take pictures. Although I can use SLR long exposure without flash, he still doesn't allow it. This probably means commercial protection.
M48***13This lake in Cradle Mountain is at the foot of Cradle Mountain. It is a calm lake of melting water from snowy mountains. The lake is very calm. The blue sky and white clouds are reflected in it. It is very beautiful, especially Cradle Mountain in the distance is taken here. It is really unclear whether it is a mountain or a reflection. The scenery is really charming.
带着Cici看世界Trovana Wildlife Park, located in the dense jungle near Mole Creek, is a great place to protect Tasmanian demons. Although the zoo is small and there are not many animal clocks, there are large and small kangaroos walking around in the park for tourists to feed themselves, hug wombat babies, and have close contact with the animals, and the animal caretaker will provide interactive programs .
I saw a kangaroo as soon as I entered the door! The kangaroos here are very docile, and they cooperate with pictures. Buying a bag of specially fed food at the entrance of the zoo is only a dollar, and there is a big bag! Compared to 5 yuan in People's Square, a small bag of corn for pigeons is really cheap to cry! It is very gentle, it just licked the saliva of my hand! In the beginning, kangaroos will swarm you when they see you have food in your hand. The daughter is a little scared and turns around to run away, but they just slowly follow you behind with an innocent expression. They will definitely not catch up with some animals. Food, so don’t be afraid at all, because they are really friendly. Soon, the children are getting better!
At a fixed time every day, the zoo will have a tour and follow the keeper to watch the feeding. At around 10:55, the broadcast will start to announce the interactive tours in 5 minutes. At about 11 o'clock, the breeder took out a little wombat and explained it to us in great detail while feeding, and also showed us its "pouch". This little wombat is only two months old. Wombat (Wombat) is a marsupial. The pouch opens back. The clumsy wombat is like a short-haired pig. It's super cute. Feel free to touch it! At that time, after Po took a picture of her daughter hugging a Tasmanian badger in Moments, many people asked, "Do you need money to take pictures of a wombat?" They answered "No money!" In China, tourists are allowed to hug animals to make money, but in foreign countries, they are In order to popularize animal knowledge and allow tourists to experience the cuteness of animals, thereby enhancing the awareness of protection, this is the most fundamental difference!
Next, we followed the breeder to see the Tasmanian devil! Seeing the keeper come in, the little devil immediately climbed up on his legs to beg for food, which is actually quite cute! However, when eating, we still saw that there is a certain reason for calling it a "little devil". The screaming and chewing noises are quite scary!
Although the zoo here is very simple compared to domestic ones, it does not affect the enthusiasm of the children at all. It is really rare to have such close contact with animals!
