Windjana Gorge

by on Sep.11, 2019, under Life, Photography

The main attraction of Windjana is the scenic gorge carved by the Lennard River, through the Napier Range

We were staying the night here in the national park

The walls of Windjana Gorge rise abruptly from the wide alluvial floodplain of the Lennard River, reaching about 100 metres high in some places. The 3.5-kilometre long gorge cuts through the limestone of the Napier Range; part of an ancient barrier reef

The Lennard River runs through the gorge in wet weather, but during the dry season it forms pools surrounded by trees and shrubs.
