Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

Springbrook National Park - a girls' day out on a hike.

This is made up of three areas, the Plateau which is what we explored on this trip, the Natural Bridge which I will blog about another time, and Mount Cougal which we have yet to visit. The plateau gives some staggering views of the Gold Coast and is full of beautiful trails, cascading waterfalls and fabulous flora.

It is an easy journey from Brisbane and can be done over a single day but overnight would allow you to explore more of the terrain. Rosellas at Canyon Lookout can offer rooms but also lunch, Devonshire scones and teas and is cozy and warm with a roaring fire which is welcome in the colder months.

We headed out from just by the café to do a circular walk of approximately 4 kms of the Twin Falls which were magnificent but not the only ones we saw on our walk. We must have come across three or four cascading waterfalls, bridges and rivers.

We initially thought this was a bit of plastic until we realised it was moving. These are the famous yabbies which are the local crayfish.
