In Queensland’s Central Highlands is Carnarvon Gorge,
a spectacular oasis in a semi-arid region.
The 35-kilometre gorge was created by water erosion through the soft sandstone over millions of years.
Spectacular walking tracks that took your breath away...
... as did the 11.5km we hiked.
And the locals are really friendly.
11.5 kilometers! Mind it looks like the walk was worth the effort.ReplyDelete
It looks quite lot like the slot canyons that we saw in the USA last year, spectacular, love all the photos. Take care DianeReplyDelete
Just loving this road trip and amazed at the kilometres you have covered and where they have taken you.ReplyDelete
Carnarvon has been on my bucket list for some time. I really must get there.
I am surprised you haven't been there yet. It is a hikers paradise. You would be in your element.Delete
Those rocks are really cool. Love how you captured the light peeking through that crack in the rock. Cute bird too!ReplyDelete
Thanks Linda. Just happened to be there at that very moment when the sun peaked through and only lasted for a minute. What was my chances?!?!Delete
Yes, it certainly is. Breathtaking.ReplyDelete
Dramatic and gorgeous. Those stairs in the fifth photo are a tad scary to my wimpy self.ReplyDelete
I love the bird! I love the sandstone formations.ReplyDelete
Fascinating scenes. It would almost be a little scary to walk through some of those areas, but it does look beautiful.ReplyDelete
Oh, wow, this is a wonderful series of photos. Loved seeing all of these.ReplyDelete
As you said in the comments you really were fortunate to get the light just right for the canyon photo. I've never managed to get that close a shot of a kookaburra. I'm a tad envious.ReplyDelete
You live in an amazing country. So glad you're getting to see more of it . . . and share it with us!ReplyDelete
Wow! That 6th shot down is amazing.ReplyDelete
Vauu... so beautiful views and landscapes. In this post as the previous posts too.ReplyDelete
