Beringbooding Rock Day 3

We woke to heavy fog. Everything outside was damp from the moisture in the air. Not a day to do the washing, nor even to go outside. The fog cleared late morning and it turned out quite a nice day,

We went for a walk along the base of the rock first to an old stone lined well.






We proceeded to the sheep dip.





Having checked out the map provided, we knew we had missed out on a couple of things on the rock. We went up the rock again. As there had been a bit of rain, water had accumulated at the exit to the water tank. In the photo below, you can see the water tank’s iron roof, below that through a small gap, you can see the water in the tank. It appears to be at least two thirds full. Connecting the rock with the tank is the concrete channel. I was surprised to see how high the water needs to rise before it could start flowing into the tank. We know the tank water is still in use. We saw a ute filling up a tank on the tray. Actually the scheme has entered the electronic age and you need an access card to withdraw water.


This large Gnamme Hole is quite deep.




The water catchment walls remind me of the Chinese great wall at it snakes along the rock edge.

We were looking for a cave with aboriginal hand paintings. We found some caves, but no paintings. In one of the caves there were more of these nests.

We soon returned to light a fire and to cook lamb shanks in the camp oven.






Browning the lamb shanks.


Adding onions.


Adding wine and stock to let the shanks simmer for two hours.








To provide more heat, burning embers were distributed on the lid of the camp oven.


Sorry, no photo of the finished product. I can assure you it was delicious.

  2. We met quite a few women travelling either on their own or with their dogs. Go for it. It’s a beautiful country and there is so much to see. We are changing our life, selling our home to move to rvhomebase to be able to travel more

    Thanks for the comment Fran. We have talked about what we would do if one of us passed away. We both decided we would continue to travel albeit differently. Erich would buy a 4WD motorhome like and OKA and I would probably do for something a bit more manageable for my skills. Just get out there and do it. Life is too short for regrets.
