Spicers Peak Lodge is Australia’s highest non-alpine lodge. As a member of Luxury Lodges of Australia this breathtaking lodge with its unending views has been named Queensland’s most luxurious accommodation six times in the last nine years.
Little bears are out and about exploring the lodge.
The awards corner…
Those hats look just like mine…
While the boys are deciding what to have for breakfast, the girls have decided on icecream 🙂 With pancakes, maple syrup, apple and bacon. Yummy!
Time for a little game…
Then for a stroll outside…
…to check out the infinity edge swimming pool…
…and the funky pumpkins.
A paparazzi caught in the act 🙂
Upstairs there is a library with billiards table…
…and a balcony to admire the views.
And look at the mountains they have climbed!
It’s time to dress up for dinner 🙂
…and enjoy the warm lounge while waiting.
Dinner is served!

Time for a song…
Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream.
We’re going hiking again!
Ok… We’ll see you at Spicers Peak Lodge.
Little Puffles and Jay are off on another hiking adventure…
Today they climbed a giant fern tree…
…touched a one thousand year old grass tree…
… and met an anglehead dragon lizard.
Anglehead dragon lizard
Look at me!
Time for a little rest…
…and a little chocolate cake 🙂
This moss feels really soft!
And before they knew it, they reached the top of the western peak and they added their own little stones to the can.
The knowledgeable guides are suitable impressed with the little bears achievement 🙂
A little bit more rest…
Are we there yet?
A little bit more climbing…
Another tree trunk to explore…
And they made it!
What shall we do next?
Puffles and Jay are off on another adventure.
Another tree, another tree climb.
This time, a gum tree.
Next stop, Millervale Creek…
…for some rock climbing.
Much easier climbing down the other side.
How did they get there?
I wonder if they get a better view than we do from down here.
A little cave…
A tree with a termite nest on it…
Other hikers out enjoying the views 🙂
Ouch! Are you sure we have to climb up there?
Oohhh, the view was worth it!
A perfect Sunday morning…
