EASTER 2019 is just a week away – so you better break out those tasty chocolate eggs. But when is Easter Sunday, why does it change each year and when are school holidays?

Please take great care.” It is worth heeding as the grassy ground is wet and slippery, while the little path that clambers down to a viewpoint is severely exposed and a slip could prove disastrous.I certainly felt conscious of the situation as Peter and I made our way gingerly down to get a better view, making sure every footstep was well placed and reliable.I lay down on the ground to take photographs, holding the camera over the edge in an attempt to show the full height of the falls in a single shot; something I quickly learned was not possible due to the vastness … [Read more...] about A view that’s easy to fall for
