What a Gorgeous
We have spent 4 wonderful days here in the Boodjamulla National Park, formerly Lawn Hill Gorge NP. Telephone and internet access just doesn’t happen here unless you park yourself next to the Ranger Station in the Park, about 10 k from where we stayed at Adels Grove.
This is just one of those magic places, outstanding natural beauty. An oasis in a some what dry environment. We have wandered off on a couple of bush walks along the creek banks, nothing too strenuous, and also a two-hour paddle up the gorge. Allthego doing all the paddling with Leanne keeping an eye peeled for crocs and turtles! Only the freshwater crocs are here which are harmless it seems, unless we human types annoy and provoke them.
Also slipped down to the Riversleigh World Heritage fossil site for a look-see. An evening plunge in the Creek as the sun was setting was a great way to cool off before heading down to the bar for an evening drink before dinner.
It was hard to leave here but we packed up and continued the journey down a fairly rugged gravel road, with a few shallow creek crossings, for about 240 k to Camooweal. Tomorrow we cross the border into the NT.
Pictures are the best way to tell the story.
