Carnarvon and the Capes

Location: Australia

Photos of Carnarvon Gorge, Cape Palmerston and Cape Hillsborough

Indigenous stencilling at Carnarvon.

Mat walking on the main track in Carnarvon. An oasis compared to the arid country surrounding the Gorge.

Lunch in a side gorge. It was about 10-15 degrees cooler in here thyan on the main track.

The enormity of the Gorge. It was a great walk.

View south from camp at Cape Palmerston. High tide is at the rocks where the shadow extends to.

Our camp at Cape Palmerston (mat sitting in his chair between the two tents admiring the view).

Gotta get that fishing gear outa the truck mat - stop wasting time with the camera. The sand was a little soft here as you can see. We saw a couple of people almost lose their boat and trailer from driving too fast and hitting the perpendicular undulations.

Beach Driving, oh yeah. An island just off the shore a little north of our campsite. Nice to drive along looking for the fishing holes and stop and walk over to it.

The view southeast from Cape Hillsborough. This is where we took the fishing rods, fishing bag and bucketto so we could "wet a line" he he he.

Red-tailed Back Cockatoo crusing among the Eucalypts over head from our camp at Cape Hillsborough. Nice of the sun to show the colours in the tail.

Jesse with a couple of nice sized Queenfish. The top of the cape is to the left of the hills in the background and out camp was just behind Jesse's head on Smally's beach.

The view west from the top pof Cape Hillsborough. You can see the esturary we fished a couple pof times in the md section of the beach there. A great little part of the country.
