Carnarvon Gorge

One of my things to achieve this year was to go somewhere at Easter we had never been before. I am happy to report that we did this and we went to Carnarvon Gorge. We have been wanting to go for a while but it is a fair drive from home and this year with it being a five day break we thought now was as good a time as any.

It was good, not necessarily to our interests but good none the less. There are a lot of bush walks ranging from 500 metres to 22km. For some insane reason we decided to do the 22km bush walk and I must say it was hard work. It was more of the rock hopping across the creeks than anything that was difficult and consequently probably the reason why I now have two swollen and brusied ankles.

But it was certainly one way to burn off all the Easter chocolate we ate. By the time we got back I could barely move I was so exhausted. We have now vowed not to take on something like that again it was a bit much. Maybe next time we will just do the 12kms like initially planned.

Oh did I mention I also fell on my bum??? Craig had told me to be careful it was slippery and I was and then lifted my foot to go onto the rock to cross the creek and next thing I know I am on my butt!! It certainly gave us a few laughs.

Did anyone else do anything exciting at Easter?

  1. Well done on the massive hike!! And on taking something off your list for the year.

    Perhaps, yes, the shorter one next time and work up to it. ;)
