On the way back to the Gibb River Road we camped near the turnoff to the Mitchell Falls.

The next day we continued on to the Barnett River Gorge

Southern View of Barnett Gorge

This was the view as we sat on the rocks high
above the Barnett Gorge.

Our camp was
situated where the water forms an inverted V
in the left picture.

 


 

The picture below - where the water from the gorge cascades over rocks past Pandanus Palms -  was taken from our campsite. Parrots with their raucous call hung from the trees as I took this shot.
It was one of the most beautiful campsites we had on our trip.
