First night at Windjana Gorge Camp
Windjana Gorge Camp
Our first stop coming from Derby was Windjana Gorge (which you can see in the background). This photo is taken while we were unpacking, getting ready for our first night in the Kimberleys.
We loved the colors, the smells, the sounds of birds and the great sunset. There were maybe five other cars, no more. It's an extremely peaceful place, and waking up with the Gorge's colors in front of you when peeking out of the tent... AWESOME.
We did the long trail in the dried Gorge, saw groups of bats in some trees and a few freshies (freshwater crocodiles). We also saw an Aussie swimming with them... He said, "Freshies are OK"... Mmh, not too much for us... :-))).
Don't miss this stop. One night (or two nights at the most) is enough.
