Karijini National Park – day one

Having started our trip Tuesday afternoon from Exmouth with one overnight stop we finally arrived at the little town Tom Price close to the Karijini National Park Wednesday afternoon after some exhausting 550 kilometres. Shopping and filling up petrol was quickly done and after a good lunch we drove the last 90 kilometres to the National Park.

Track number one was into Hancock Gorge – at the beginning with a quite easy class 3 walk and then down the ladder into the Gorge onto the class 5 walk / hike.

Up and down to the beautiful Amphitheatre with a little waterfall where we climbed along the rockwalls instead of wading / swimming through the water.

Through the Spider walk, a quite narrow part of the gorge to Kermits Pool, the end of the walk. Only well equipped and professionally guided tours have access to the part that lies beyond that point. Regans Pool that followed after Kermits Pool in the restricted area was named in honour of the rescuer Jim Reagan who was swept away by a flash flood being on a rescue mission in 2004.

On our way back it happened – somebody fell into the water.  But the camera was safe… : )
