Bungle Bunbles Sightseeing, Australia - 29th June 2011

By: Stace

Today we travelled from our camp site into the fascinating gorges of the Bungle Bungles. A slow trip as there were approx. 37 creek crossings on the way.

Firstly we visited Echidna Gorge which was quite a rocky walk and then moved on to the spectacular Cathedral Gorge. This involved a walk from the domes up a dry creek bed to the Gorge.

Unfortunately I couldn't run around through the water as all those kids did when doing the Qantas add.

Halls Creek, W.A., Australia - 30th June 2011

By: Stace

Left our campsite at Purnululu National Park this morning and headed back to Halls Creek.

On the way we stopped at the bridge over the Ord River, which was quite dry but as can be seen by the angle of the trees it carries some huge quantities of water in the wet season.

Packed up our camp for the last time this morning and headed off to Alice Springs.

By: Stace

Today we travelled West from Alice Springs following the spectacular West MacDonnell Ranges. Passed the John Flynn Memorial (founder of the Royal Flying Doctor Service) and on to Simpson's Gap where we walked along the sandy watercourse lined with unbelievable ghost gums.

Here I managed to complete one of my life missions and climb a really old tree.  :p :p
