He jumped right on my camera after I took this photo 😮 So beautiful! #Australia #thisisqueensland Two of the beautiful kangaroo residents at Spicers Hidden Vale, #Australia @spicersretreats. How beautiful is our country!? The picture perfect view from the back deck of a #Spicers Hidden Vale cottage. @spicersretreats Chilli the wonder dog! She's the very sweet hound of #Spicers Hidden Vale activities coordinator, Ash, and she has all the guests spoiling her. #PuppyClucky Sunset at #Spicers Hidden Vale yesterday afternoon. #thisisqueensland @spicersretreats I had an awesome trail ride this morning at Spicers Hidden Vale. Riding horses is one of my most favourite things, but something I rarely get to do. I had so much fun :) @spicersretreats I'm spending the weekend at the gorgeous Spicers Hidden Vale. It's the perfect spot for the first ever Little Grey Box Christmas party and I'm celebrating by jumping around in my robe 😀 @spicersretreats #Spicers #Brisbane... where our river is blue... I swear! 😳
