“During my last hike on this section, I ran into a young emu who had wondered off from it’s mum. It saw me and walked away following the track. The emu was then surprised to see me again so it wasked away a little faster but stayed on the track. We played chasey for a good 20 min, it was hilarous and so entertaining”
