    Waterfall Way Continued...

    April 19, 2017 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    After a cold night (for Aussie) we still managed an outdoor hair wash, etc... unlike the friendly Aussie's in the caravan next to us with their own hot shower. These free (very basic) rest areas area much more social places to camp than most campsites. Hope we will still be doing this sort of thing when we are their age, at 82! We had to get the waterproofs out for our walk at Cathedral Rocks but thankfully the sun came out later in the afternoon. The scramble up and over these huge boulders, finally using a chain to get to the top was brilliant fun. They are huge granite rocks piled up like giant marbles. From here we went along to Wollomombi Gorge and walked to Chandler Lookout where we had a great view of both Wollomombi and Chandler Falls that plunge into an enormous ravine. The 2nd highest falls in Australia at 220 metres. Found another rest area in the nearby tiny hamlet of Wollomombi, on a piece of grassland just across from the small village shop. Wandered across to have a look, turns out that the young couple who have recently taken over also run a pub at the back. About as rustic as it gets, the locals were very friendly and we enjoyed a couple of beers and a long chat. Great to see a slice of backcountry life off the tourist trail.Read more
