Burrup Peninsula

Deep Gorge, Murujuga National Park. The piles of red rock, home to a large colony of Rock Wallabies, were quite striking. Pity we couldn’t locate the rock art.

We left Point Samson later than usual and headed back down the road to Karratha to check it out. A modern mining town with all the facilities. From there we went to Dampier for lunch and to check out the port operations. We left town and went out to the North West Gas Fields Visitor Centre but its closed until next week so no joy there. It seems strange to see this large industrial complex on such ancient landscape. We visited Hearson Cove which is another great place to watch the Stairway to the Moon and little out of there was Deep Gorge. Unfortunately the signs leading to the Rock Art in the area have faded to nothing so no luck in finding it in the Gorge. We headed back to the highway where we are camped at the Robe River Rest Area (along with a couple of dozen grey nomads)
