The Nitmiluk National Park is so popular. There is a significant amount of infrastructure to allow visitors to experience the wonders of the park.
We arrived last night and rocketed off onto a trail for a short sunset walk. Watch the sun dissapear beyond the escarpment from a lookout over the Gorge, then down onto the river where thousands of bats were taking off for their night time foraging.
Today we squeezed in a 15k walk which included a SWIM at Butterfly Gorge, then back to camp for a quick lunch, then onto a big launch which took us to the adjoining gorge where we grabbed a canoe for a trip upstream and more swimming. Fantastic because it was up to 35° again today.
Dinner and then board games tonight with some fellow campers.
A morning of Bushwalking for Regina and mountain biking for Ian followed by an afternoon in the shade by the pool.Read more
