Litchfield National Park

On our seventh day at Ewan's we were given strict orders to go as team to Litchfield National Park and enjoy ourselves before driving north to Tracy's mango farm for another few days of work.

Litchfield had been on my list since we began our Outback excursion, so I was happy to finally get to see it. We only had a few hours but what we saw was beautiful. We were led around the park by David, who is pretty much a local, and he showed us the best two swimming places in the whole park.

 

Buley Rockholes

This was our first stop. The water was so cold but it was worth it! We brought snorkeling gear so we were able to dive to the bottom and check out all sorts of neat rocks and fish. The water was very clear.

Florence Falls

The falls were beautiful too. I think the water was even colder here but it was a bigger pool. Here people jumped off the rocks and into the pool below. We snorkeled here too and found even more fish and wonderful underwater lifeforms.

We enjoyed ourselves all afternoon, swimming and sunbathing and by four o'clock it was time for us to drive into Noomanah and see our place of work for the next three days.
