Bald Rock National Park, NSW

Date: 3rd November 2013

Bald Rock is a 3-hours drive from Toowoomba and I have been thinking of visiting it since last year. But I was not sure if it was a suitable trip for an infant. However, it is the largest granite monolith in Australia, which means it is a must-go!

So best buds, Julie Zac and Zayra came to visit on 1st November. Was not sure where to bring them around Toowoomba. Oh well, let's try hiking then!

Sunscreen for everyone!:

At first, I was thinking of bringing Kimi's stroller through the Bungoona Walk. The Summit Direct Walk would be out of the question. A lady who just got down advised that it was not a good idea... And thank God for that... (What was I thinking??!) We had a plate of fried rice each at the picnic table to fuel us with energy!

The best thing was, my 2 year old son was just as excited as the adults. He wanted to walk (or run) on his own and made it to the top!

After walking half way, the view started to become very interesting.

At the top, it is a bit dangerous for toddlers but Kimi seemed a bit scared of the height, which is good :p Anyway, loving the view. Was worth the 2 hours return walk.

On our way down. Nearly there!:

Rocks Riverside Park, Brisbane

Date: 26 October 2013

Hasben had a friendly game of football with other Malaysian students in Brisbane. While they were playing, the ladies and Kimi were exploring DFO Jindalee nearby.

For lunch, we went for a picnic at Rocks Riverside Park, the largest riverfront park in Brisbane.

There were so many people there; families in big group having gatherings and children playing on the many playgrounds.

The Brisbane River:

Kimi had just a little splash in the paddling pool:

One of the many many many playgrounds:

This park is unique as it is built on a former cement quarry. Some of the industrial artefacts on display:

A really huge rusty screw (?):

A slide for transferring the cement (?):

It is a very big park and the weather was warm. I was exhausted after chasing Kimi around the park. Fuhhh ha!
