Boab Prison Tree

Did a quick trip to Derby to see the prison tree, they take their boab's very seriously there as you can see the roads go around the tree instead of bulldozing it down.

This house including the roof has been built around the boab tree!

This is the prison tree, awful inside, I would hate to even get in it let alone stay in it!

Had lots of carving on it but unfortunately most were unreadable.

Gives you an idea of the size of it.

Geikie Gorge Cruise

Spent one night at Fitzroy Crossing and went on the cruise down Geikie Gorge. Was the first week it was open after the wet season and the staff were still digging everything out from under the mud

The water was spectacular

The cliffs down either side were awesome.

This is a Johnson's Freshwater crocodile. Loved this photo, he posed so nicely

Saw probably about 10 of these crocodiles during the cruise which took about 2 hours.

The cruise was well worth the cost, the guide was very well informed and we can recommend it.

Wolf Creek Crater

Did a day trip out to Wolf Creek Crater, to get there you have to go part the way down the Tanimi Road. Well that was an eye opener, I thought I had been on a rough road before but this one sure took the first prize! Thank goodness we were not pulling the van. Hope you can read the info on this info board.

This is the track up the side of the crater, pretty rocky but not too hard.

Awesome, the circle is the impact zone in the centre of the crater, there were people walking down the track to the centre and they looked like ants.

Looking around the rim to the left.

And to the right.

Was thinking of my Dad while we were up here as his & Mum's last trip was to here, was on his bucket list and mine too.

Coming down from the top.

Just in case you forgot where we were!

Can you believe this caravan!!! This was parked at an abandoned station house on the road into the crater. It even had an ensuite but it was so small I couldn't get a photo to show it.

Can you imagine pulling this around Australia. This was so cool.

This is the kitchen in the van, I kid you not, a real wood stove.
