Windjana Gorge.The next gorge on the list of must sees on the Gibb River is the Windjana Gorge.
Set in the middle of another National Park is the gorge and associated camp ground.
Flushing toilets and running water even, right in the middle of grass and sand.
Another gorge, 7.5km return up a sandy and rocky river bed through hole in the wall and through the scrub.
Set up camp and went for a short circular pathway trip through a “Savannah trail” just across the road from the camp. The back drop was another rock face very similar to the “Organ Pipes Park” we have back in Victoria. Saw our first Croc in the wild. A fresh water variety.
One of the locals visiting.
Next day we trekked the 7.5 km walk. Well nearly , the last .5km is closed due to weather damage to the gorge walls from the last wet season. Lovely views along the gorge with fish swimming in the river just below the trail.
There a Croc
Finished the trek got back to camp and had lunch all gorged out with stiff legs and hot bodies. Spent the rest of the afternoon sitting in the shade watching the bird life and resting.
Tomorrow is another day. We head to Derby and a fish and chip dinner on the pier watching the sun go down.
