Mornington Wliderness Park

We had been told by numerous people that Mornington Wilderness Park was well worth the drive in.  So we decided that if there was space we would go. 

 At the turn off there is this radio for you to call up and find out if there is room for you to stay.  
A great thing because it is just over 2 hour drive off the main road.  
We were very excited when then said there was room for us.

 This enormous Boab tree was just one of the many we saw that day.  
There were so many different shapes and sizes.

The flying leap!!!
This was the best way to get in as the water was actually rather cold.

We had such a wonderful time here.  And would have to agree, it was well worth the drive in.


  1. Wow. Your pics remind me that our country is bigger than what we see (and feel) most days. Refreshing, thanks. g

  2. Love what you've been doing with your blob Ains.... have just made the time now (2.30pm 17/09/13) to read it all. It's a great family story & brings back many memories of Dad's & my visits to these places. Very special to see how much the boys enjoyed it all too. Mum

    1. That's BLOG... yep time for a Nana nap I'm thinking!!

  3. Love the new header Ainz. (Live that Eli has wet mud on his toes...takes a three year old to find wet mud anywhere!) g

  4. These photos bring back some memories. We lived & travelled up around the Kimberleys for a while. I miss the colours & the contrast of the land & sky.


Thanks so much for taking the time to 'chat' with me!
