Big Trout

Passed through Adaminaby yesterday on our way to the Yarrangobilly Caves. The Big Trout dominates this tiny township near Lake Eucumbene. Haven't seen a live trout yet, MDR tried his luck fishing on Lake Jindabyne but to no avail.
The caves were excellent, we went on a guided tour of the "Jersey" Cave, only a small group of about 14 people, mostly well behaved except for the young boy in front of MB who couldn't resist putting his finger in the completely still pool of water that was reflecting the stalactites above it. There was also a thermal pool nearby, with the water a constant 27c. On the way back from visiting the thermal pool we spotted a male lyrebird. We heard it first, mimicking other birds, then saw it about 5m away from us, an amazing sight, these are such elusive creatures. No photo though, it was too shy.
