Windjana Gorge

Windjana Gorge on the Fairfield Leopold Downs Road.  It is a 3.5 Km long gorge formed by the Lennard River. Has lots of birds and fish. Lots of walk trails with signs explaining the area. Facilities for camping, coach tours, caravans.

Windjana Gorge, Helen getting brave to have a picture near a Crocodile, these are fresh water ones so you are safe , maybe?

Galvins Gorge

Galvins Gorge

  Some views of the Lilly Pond at Galvins Gorge. To get here the only way is to walk. It is about two hours to get to this spot.

Main section of Galvins Gorge.   This is a horseshoe shaped gorge with a waterfall that falls 20 meters into a round pool. 

Lennard Gorge

Tunnel Creek

 Lennard Gorge, a 5 Km long gorge with steep cliffs, waterfall and pool.   It is a walk to access this spot (two hours to walk to the Gorge end) but it is worth while  as the swimming here is very good and needed in the 40 degrees c heat.

The Entrance to Tunnel Creek close up. The area has permanent fresh water pools and Aboriginal cave paintings.

Inside Tunnel Creek Unfortunately the paintings here are not shown, but you will see them later in the canning trail pictures.
