Along the Dowling Track – Currawinya National Park, Lakes Numalla, Wyara and Kaponyee, The Granites – Part 3

Wednesday, 15th of May 2013
Leaving Lake Kaponyee behind us, we drove back almost to the Hungerford Road and then turned towards The Granites. The ranger had mentioned to us that this is her favourite place in the Currawinya National Park.

From the car park it is a little walk before you can see what this is all about. The trees around here are quite special.

The rocks seemed to have been thrown here at random.

Walking between the two main rock formations there were these deep, dry creek beds with more trees.

On the ground there were some mysterious holes neither Lesley nor myself were keen to investigate further.

On the way to the top of the rocks we noticed different bones along the way, some of which might be goats. This particular one didn’t need too many guesses.

The view from the top was spectacular.

The flies were incredible around here.

I loved the colourful bark of this tree.

Towards sunset, an Emu came down to the river Paroo to have a drink. I didn’t even know that Emu drink water. I guess that explains why we saw so many Emus at Lake Kaponyee.

Despite all the walking, Lesley still managed to cook Osso Bucco in the Camp Oven on the open fire.

Osso Bucco and mashed sweet potatoes. Yum.
