We had to be up early and bags outside ready for the long drive to Katherine in the Northern Territory.
On the way to breakfast, Joe and Norma showed us a visitor they had in their room. At breakfast we were all pleased to see Margaret join the tour again after spending 3 days in hospital here in Kununurra.
It wasn't far to the border. Now we are leaving the Kimberley region and entering the area called "The Top End."
There are only two small townships on the 500km road between Kununurra and Katherine. We stopped at this roadhouse for lunch. We had a laugh at the sign.
Another 50m road train with its 86 wheels trundled past.
We drove on, arriving at Katherine Resort in the afternoon and we plunged in the pool to cool off and relax.
Early the next morning we cruised along the Katherine River Gorge. The sun was shining into the camera all the way. Kayakers were also setting off.
I hope the Kayakers see this sign.
This is the little beach where the crocodiles nest and, the kayakers mustn't rest.
Half way along the trip we have to alight and walk over rocks to the next boat as the river is too shallow here in the dry season.
We walked past some Aboriginal paintings, thousands of years old.
Walking to the next boat.
The walls of the gorge start to get taller and colourful.
This part was the prettiest...darn the sun in the lens.
Bill and I liked this gorge very much.
I can't remember which bird makes these nests in the walls of the gorge. Could be Swifts.
We pass some kayakers stopping to explore. It must be safe here or they wouldn't be allowed to do this.
These kayakers get back safely.
You too can cruise one of the nicest gorges in Australia on Bill's video HERE
You can also check out more dust storm pics there too.
