The next day after this having climbed two class 4 walks we felt brave enough to takle a class 5 and into Kermits Pool one of the gorges in the Weano Gorge. It was quite an adventure from rock hopping to wading thru water (Andrew carried the girls and Aaron climbed) then we had to climb along a shelf next to some rather deep flowing water in the bottom – we all climbed well and managed to keep the camera dry.
Then after going through a beautiful ampitheatre we came to a part called spider walk and Aaron climbed thru having so much fun. At the end we all had to climb along a ledge next to the Kermits Pool which had a small waterfall and just a small amount of sun. Not quite as cold as Circular Pool but still only in for a quick dip and Holly again wisely watched as we shivered and sat in the sun to warm up.
After this walk we drove to the Knox and Joffre lookouts and enjoyed the view of 4 huge gorges meeting.
We didn’t get to walk all the trails and gorges of Karijini so we will have to come back another day but what we saw we loved. More beautiful than my photos do justice.
On the way out of Karijini we visited the Hamersley Gorge and the spa pools. It was overcast but still quite warm so we went for a quick dip after climbing the rocky path and enjoying views of the rainbow ripples of rock. Yet another spectacular gorge carved out my millions of years of water flows.
The children were amazed and excited to get the red dirt to stick onto magnets at our camp site.
