Windjana Gorge - 21st August 2009

Windjana Gorge was our first stop on the Gibb River Road, an unsealed road that traverses the Kimberley from Derby to near Kununurra. Cut by a river through the Napier Range, an ancient coral reef that means that fossils can be spotted in the sides of the gorge (with close attention), the highlight of the gorge was the proliferation of fresh water crocodiles. Walking along the banks of the river, mainly just large pools with slow flowing water due to it being close to the end of the dry season, we spotted one every few minutes, usually hanging about in the water or sometimes on the banks below us.
