Tunnel Creek and Windjana Gorge

Where are we now
100km east of Broome

Travelling Tales
The road up to Tunnel Creek wasn’t too bad, in fact we commented that it was restoring our faith that gravel roads didn’t necessarily mean a horrible rough ride. Tunnel Creek was just the best walk, underground for about 800 meters, much of it wading through quite cold water. Very natural with no lighting at all but with carrying torches we could see the waterfalls, stalactites, fish, shrimps etc I was very pleased with my Olympus camera again got some photos I was pleased with.

Further up the same road is Windjana Gorge another Limestone Reef with some good walks, stayed in the campground here with many people who are doing the Gibb River Road. Rather crowded but nice to have solar showers and flush toilets 😊. One of the walks we started at 7am to avoid the heat and definitely worth it walking along the edge of the river 4km saw only 1 Freshwater Crocodile on the way up but coming back saw at least 25 still excited to see them so have plenty of pics.

Staying in WA National Parks is a bit different from other states both at Windjana Gorge and Purnululu there have been camp hosts who check your vehicle registration and make sure money has been paid either at the site or on line.
