Yet again Possum valley was everything we expected and more. Our bird list was enormous with sightings of Satin and Golden bower birds both in their bowers. Luck was not on our side as we again did not see the illusive tree kangaroo but we did get some good sightings of the platypus down at the main pond.
We thoroughly recommend this unique and beautiful part of the tablelands. Paul has a special place, a bit rustic, a bit quirky and very different to the normal soulless accommodation on offer else where.
If you want a rustic cabin full of personality with wildlife, birds by the bucket load and rainforest charm then Possum valley is for you. If you want spotless, mindless, soulless perfection with not an ounce of personallity then choose somewhere else.
Thanks again Paul for a wonderful time.
