McElholum road trip - up the Centre 2012 travel blog



Woke to find grey clouds with rain threatening. Pre-monsoon season of 'Gunmeleng' officially starts tomorrow. Packed camper and heading south by 8am. Surprised to find water over road . Has been no rain for several months in the season of 'Gurrung. 4wd road to Maguk, now with large puddles over corrugated road. 2km walk over very rocky and sandy river bed to beautiful rock pool area. Had a swim, then walked back and drove to our next camp at Gunlom in the south of Kakadu. Another corrugated drive. Magnificent rock pool with sandy bottom and waterfall, campground 150mt walk away. Many fish swimming, a few nibblers. Staying tonight but tempted to extend! $$20p/n. Another ranger slide show and talk at campground about the local Jawoyn people.
