It’s an early morning start to explore Windjana Gorge.  Your tour then follows ‘The Gibb’ crossing rugged King Leopold Range and heading into ‘cattle country’.  After a healthy lunch, the walk into breathtaking Bell Gorge and a refreshing swim will amaze you!  Enjoy a relaxing evening at the Silent Grove campsite.  (B,MT,L,D)
