Geike Gorge

We saw a sign in the visitors centre in Derby the other day which said "we
are gorged out". I think we are getting close to that. After walking the
base of the gorge we took a few photos and then headed back to the visitors

There have been some amazing floods in this area. During the dry season
(which is now) the river is quite low and billabongs are created and used
recreationally. However in the wet season it is a very different story.
Apparently the water can rise twenty six metres above. Inside the gazebo
there were signs showing where the floods have reached. The highest was two
metres above the full height of the gazebo.

Surprisingly there were no crocodiles (at least that we saw) at Geike Gorge
