Palm rise campground in Bell Gorge

We stayed at the last camping ground near Bell Gorge. It was peaceful, there was nobody but us, the landscape, and the sandflies... It was OK, although we got bitten a few times...

A great moment I can remember is when a baby kangaroo came up to us to say hello, just before sunset. He came very close, checked out what we were doing, then left in the bush!

Swimming in Bell Gorge was great, given the high temperatures during the day!

Mozzies and sandflies...
by: Birgit

We also camped at one of the sites near the creek when we visited Bell Gorge. We didn't have any problems with sandflies, but the mosquitoes tried to pick us up and carry us away, I swear! But hey, we went in May, and that's what you get when you camp near a creek in May :-).
