Just a couple of Papuan Frogmouths caught by the paps 🎥 Much like our fan favourites the Tawny Frogmouth, these guys aren't actually owls at all 🦉 They are part of the Nocturnal Nightjar family, and are the largest of the Frogmouths in length 🌴🪶 Although the Papuan Frogmouth is common, they’re masters of disguise, meaning they can be hard to spot to even by the sharpest pair of eyes 👀

When hear the name Murray, what do you think of? The Red Wiggle? Or maybe Bill Murray 🤔

Well around here, we think Murray Falls. This stunning spot boasts crystal clear waters and naturally sculptured granite boulders 💦 

The Yalgay Ginja Bulumi walk offers views overlooking the Kirrama Range and Murray Valley 🤩 But the best way to experience the Murray Falls and surrounds is to pitch a tent at the campgrounds, just a mere 300m from the waterfall ⛺️

While swimming at the falls itself is restricted, it’s only a few minutes walk to a great swimming hole downstream, complete with its very own natural waterslide 🛝🌴
