Jourama Falls

50 kms along the road we saw a sign to Jourama Falls National Park so decided to explore. At the entrance to the National Park a sign told us to be careful as there is water across the road. We parked Matilda and decided to walk to the falls, when we came to the creeks the water was only ankle-deep and round the corner was a campsite, it was the most perfect camp we had come to so far. The sites were arranged for maximum privacy, all on grass. We looked at each other “Lets stay here” we said, and went back to get Matilda….

Because it was so private and the weather was warm we decided to try out the mosquito tent for me to sleep in.

Can you see the bush turkey that came to visit us?

After setting up our camp spot we walked the 3km up to the falls lookout. it was a well designed and well made track.

Going across the boulders on the creek bed they had installed stakes and chains to help you keep your balance.

In the wet the boulders would be submerged and very slippery.

It took approx 45 minutes to reach the viewing platform at the base of the falls. We enjoyed the excercise after the driving. The weather was just the right temperature for walking.

How cold is it Jack?

On the way down we found this rock pool. Jack could not resist diving in, he did not have togs or towel but no worries he just stripped down to his undies…

He said it was invigorating. I decided to give it a miss and use the cold showers back at camp for my wash.
