Camooweal to Lawn Hill

After approx 300 klms of dirt road we made it to Adels Grove - Lawn Hill.
The caravan survived its first creek crossing ( the deepest about 600mm) with no problems.
It now certainly is living up to its name " Bushmaster" , it's covered in red dust and caked in mud.

We're bush camping again, but have had no problem for power as the solar has kept us almost fully charged.
More gorges today, we walked or should I say climbed like mountain goats to the look out over the Lawn Hill Gorge, beautiful views with a bonus .........a weak mobile signal.

Next on the agenda was to canoe down the gorge to the falls. Mark voted himself captain and sat at the back steering with his double paddle while I did all the work moving us forward.
That's my recollection anyway , Marks version was that I sat in the front giving a few token paddles and slowed us up by putting my hands in the water while he did all the work.
It wasn't just a leisurely cruise it was much more strenuous than we expected. Unfortunately no photos, I was worried my camera could end up in the drink.

This most commonly sighted lizard is this Gilbert's Dragon , also called the Ta - ta lizard as is has a habit of waving a front limb when it stops running.

We have walked , climbed, rock hopped and trekked through enough gorges and photographed enough waterfalls to last us a while. We're ready for a sea change ........... next stop Karumba
