Day 37 – Karajini

Posted from Karijini, Western Australia, Australia.


Today we woke, as usual, at 6am … since Kel had forgotten to turn off the alarm.  First thing we noticed was that the fridge temp was a bit warm … since we we’re out of gas.  “No problem”, thinks I, “we’ve got 2 gas bottles”.  Typically, swapping over to the second gas bottle I discovered a leak somewhere in that side of the system.  This meant physically swapping the gas bottles over which also meant folding up the bed to get to it.  Morning exercise with variety in Karajini…

A quick brekky and hike preparations saw us ready to get stuck into the other major gorge system of Karajini, Weano Gorge.  We were just getting ready to leave when Blake let out a scream.

Day 36 – Karajini

Posted from Karijini, Western Australia, Australia.


We got up fairly early and headed the 100km into Karajini National Park.  I’d thought that the roads were all dirt in here, but we were on bitumen all the way up to the campground itself.  We did an extremely basic setup, pretty much just popped the roof and got the fridge going on gas.

We were keen to get stuck into the various walks around the area.  A quick discussion soon had a route mapped out and off we went.  All the trails are graded 1 to 6.  Class 6 requires rockclimbing and/or abseiling equipment.  The others decrease in difficulty until the easiest, in here, is a class 2.  A class 2 is just a walk through the bush with a few obstacles on marked trails.

We were in Dales Campground, Cockatoo Loop section, due to wanting to use a generator.  We walked from there down to the Fortesque Falls Carpark and then took the class 3 trail down to the falls themselves.
