30/7/14 – Into the Island Stack walk early before the heat of the day. It’s a 4km return walk. Mostly pretty easy but there is 200m that is a steep climb up steps to the top, but the view is amazing and worth the climb. The rest if the walk takes you around the top of the island with some great views.
Back at camp for morning tea, made some lunch and then headed off for a paddle up the gorge. We saw 2 fresh water crocodiles along the gorge and was able to paddle up to within a few metres of them.
Lawn Hill, Boodjamulla, National Park – T, S, B, OR, M, W, $. Lawn Hill is a favorite and special place for us. Whether you stay here at the National Park or at Adels Grove, you are sure to have a wonderful time. Standard Qld national park fees apply, booking needs to be done online. Each site is separated by pollards and trees and not close to the next site as the photos show. These were sites around us, but all of them were much the same. Some sites are for tents only. Cold showers, plenty of taps spread around the place. Mobile reception only at the national park, dump point up near Adels Grove. Rating – 5
Adel’s Grove, Lawn Hill, Boodjamulla, National Park – T, S, B, $, W, DW. Beautiful place to stay. Even though it’s not free or a cheap place it’s been included as it’s a popular place to stay when visiting Lawn Hill, Boodjamulla, National Park. There are heaps of sites and in peak season you need to book ahead. There are no powered sites, but there is one camping area dedicated to people who wish to use a generator. There are time restrictions when they can be used. Most sites are a good size but it is a good idea to state what type of set up you have so you are put into a big enough site. All sites have water that is suitable to drink. It does have a high calcium content, which after several days you are keen for some fresh water. The other camping area is called the “Grove” closer to the creek. No generators allowed, lots of trees, shady sites with no defined sites. Lots to see and do, highly recommended.
