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
