Australia - 2005-04-21 - 1 - West MacDonnell National Park - Redbank Gorge Walk & Swim (Page 1)

The night's sleep was a good one. It was a bit unusual because I had the entire truck to myself, as Adrian had decided to sleep outside. Also the night before I had taken my first shower with our portable shower, which did not work that well. However, I can say that it did help me feel refreshed though. We slept with the park at the Redbank Gorge camp sites. They were not that great, but did have a drop toilet, bbq & picnic table. They also had tons of ants & other animals that bit us, leaving marks. Anyway after working on the laptop for a while I had went to sleep & slept rather well. The next morning we got everything packed up & headed to the Redbank Gorge walk. The first 5 minutes of the walk is not that great, but soon you see the red cliffs of the beautiful gorge & understand the appropriate naming. You walk along a dry creek bed for a good part of the walk. I had chosen to wear my sandals because the signs said that there was a swim at the end of the gorge. The walking was not very well suited to this, but luckily it was not a very long walk. The first page of pictures are all of the walk there. The third picture on the second page shows Adrian at the swimming hole. If you look closely in the background you can see that there is an opening where the 2 cliffs meet. Adrian & I explored back into there about 200 meters. We had to do a combination of rock climbing, swimming & walking to get back further, but the views were really cool. The bad part was that I couldn't take my camera back there because at parts you were completely underwater. The colors there were varied, where the rest of the walk had been all red. After exploring that for a while we came back out to the main pool & swam there for a little while before going back to the 4WD. Redbank was my second favorite part of the park.
