    Glenn Herring Gorge

    April 26, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    We spent the night in this gorge 24ks south west of Marble Bar. A number of people had commented on Wikicamps that it was worth the drive out. It seemed to take forever to drive out there and on arrival we thought it was a bit of a let down, however it turned out to be absolutely beautiful. Because we arrived late we didn't appreciate where we were, but an early walk in the morning down the gorge was awesome. On the way back into Marble Bar we stopped in at the Old Comet Gold Mine museum near the old mine site. The public are not allowed to enter the mine site, but the museum was really interesting and well worth the visit because of the history of the mine as well as the endless array of mineral rocks and old artefacts on display. The caretaker Gerard was older gent with a Dutch accent but has been an Aussie for more than half his life. He had great charisma and was full of interesting facts.Read more

    Looking down the gorge at Dave and Phoebe who were following me. It was slow going for the wee dog who really only likes grass, pavements and poles. She's a townie for sure.

    On the way in, our first water crossing, about 3 inches deep. Ha Ha.
