Day 25

Wednesday 8th June 

Had a great day. Had a good breakfast and then headed off on a hike to Indarri Falls, 3 hours round trip up over the plateau and down the cliff face,  dam steep. The colours out here are just so vivid. The falls are beautiful. The terrain is very undulating,  rocky and colourful. Alice and Jack went up to the falls in their kayak, went to the second level, we saw them at the falls. Got back at 12.30 pm.  Had to cool down, then went for a cold shower. Had lunch and just sat around for awhile,  it was 35 deg today again. Flies are bad. Wearing the fly net most days. Don and Jack went walking up over the Constance Range,  Don said it’s beautiful but extremely tough. I’m not doing it.  Couldn’t get on the boat trip today but have booked for tomorrow 10 am. Looking forward to that. Not cold at nights. Lovely and fresh.

Going up the escarpment, reds and green, we are so lucky this national park was closed to flooding two weeks prior to us coming.
