Cania Gorge is a beautiful area dominated by soaring sandstone cliffs. Surrounding lowlying areas are used mainly for dairy and beef cattle, most of which saunter by the side of the road and give you a glance as you drive by.
Three Moon Creek was named by an 19th century miner who, whilst washing his cup in the nearby creek, saw the moon in his cup of water, in his bucket and in the sky. If only everything was so simple.
We were visited by an abundance of bird life at our little cabin in the caravan park, much to the delight of my 11 year old daughter, Isabel. The highlight of her day was when the King Parrots, Rainbow Lorikeets, Kookaburras and Cockatoos came to be fed.

Now, to reason of this blog post. While in Cania Gorge, we visited the little town of Mulgildie. The townsfolk have a spooky waterhole they call the Bunyip Hole. Aboriginals tell the story of fearsome monsters that live in swamps and waterholes. Over the years, tales have emerged of strange noises, churning, bubbling water in the Bunyip Hole, and of cattle disappearing into the depths as they drank.
