We left Mt Isa and headed East then North, stopping at another roadside campsite rated a million stars, Dan lit a campfire and we enjoyed sharing it with one other couple.
The next morning we discovered these little birds drinking water from our caravan:
Lawn Hill National Park:
This is Lawn Hill Gorge it has been carved out by Lawn Hill Creek, which flows all year and is fed by numerous freshwater springs from the limestone plateau to the west. The water is known for it’s clear blue tinge due to the lime leaching out of the limestone. There are freshwater crocs.. although all we saw was a turtle. We also swam at Indarri falls just around the bend. They run tours on a solar powered boat, Dan with his man power managed to catch up to them and we overtook them !!!
Riversleigh World Heritage Site (in Lawn Hill National Park):
Murrays Place @ Gregory Downs
This guy lets out his lawn for free/ donation to RFDS. He has a little Coffee Shop/store, super friendly and even got to buy some freshly laid chook eggs, as you can see below they are free range! There is also free camping down at the Gregory Downs River.
It was a short visit, but if we don’t keep moving Cape York will be washed out before we get there!
