It is not every day you come across a snake while on tour in the Blue Mountains. Listen, you might often get the odd one slither away in front of you while hiking in Wentworth Falls on a hot summers day but even that can be a rare occasion.
But on this particular day in the Blue Mountains our local tour guide was showing his guests the famous 3 Sisters rock formation at Echo Point, a popular destination where hundreds of international visitors flock to daily. He was just finishing up telling the dreamtime stories of the Blue Mountains to his group of backpackers when all of a sudden he saw something come at him from the corner of his eye!
It was outright frightful, scary and entertaining all at the same time….
With a variety of snake species up in the Blue Mountains including the eastern brown, copper head, red bellied black and yellow faced whip snake, we think it may have been a never before seen species in Australia called the line snake. I don’t know, ill leave it for you to decide.
What I can tell you is that there is never a dull moment with Barefoot Downunder and our adventure tour guides in the Blue Mountains! 🙂
