It was another huge bummer that our AWD couldn’t make it down to Barramundi Gorge, but the drive alone (as far as we could make it) was still all sorts of fun. There were massive termite mounds all over the place and our detour made for some really amusing photo ops. (That’s where our picture of the day was taken.)
Gunlom Falls was one of my favorite camping spots. Once we got there, we enjoyed a relaxing late afternoon swim in a pool below a tall trickling waterfall. I was actually surprised by how chilly the water was. And I know everyone is probably wondering how we were able to swim there. Yes, there are crocodile warning signs nearby. There are no 100% guaranteed safe swimming spots, but the more popular places to take a dip very rarely, if ever, encounter a saltwater croc. Regardless, it was a beautiful way to spend our arvo and success that we all made it out alive!
