We strategically positioned ourselves behind a tour bus going in, this way we could see which way to best tackle the crossings. It made for slow going but a stress free entry was welcomed.
After a brief stop at the visitors centre,Ves rushed the kids to the loo moments before a significant queue formed due to the nomads piling off the bus with the same thought. We then took the track right to go to Cathedral Gorge, Piccaninny Creek and the domes.
Much of the walk was down the middle of the river bed
This was actually a huge undercut area like a massive amphitheater. The kids enjoyed fossiking for zebra rock and other treasures. This seems to be an ongoing occourance with rocks and pebbles from many places stuffed into hidey-holes everywhere in both the car and van....they just keep coming.
Any picture containing a child and a termite mound must involve a arms up pose.
We had dinner around the communal campfire and convinced a few other doubtful travelers that the drive in is no problem. It would have cost Pete and Kath $1250 and us $1000 to join the tour buses that venture in daily, hence we took our chances on the road. Many of the tour bus travelers from the previous day stated that there was no way they'd take their car through that...we supposed that they were justifying the hard earned they'd spent on the tour.
