Brachina Gorge.

Sacred canyon was our first stop on our 4WD trip, and after the first 5 minutes of corrugated dirt road the kids and Rosalee had had enough, but I pushed on enjoying the serentity of the drive, after another 15 minutes we arrived at the car park. The kids again found that the walk involved climbing up and down rocks so they loved it, we saw old etchings in the rock face where the Adnyamathamha people would perform ceremonies. It was a a fun walk.

Next we headed to Brachina Gorge following the fossil tour this was a lot longer of corrugated road, a couple of shallow river crossings and a whole lot of different type rocks hich were interesting.

We also stopped at a couple of lookouts to see the ranges better and take a lot of photos.

After that we returned to camp and started school for the term, boy is it hard to get back into it.
