Awesome isn't a strong enough word to describe the grandeur of Gunlom (part of Waterfall Creek), deep within Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory (NT). So ... for once, I'll let the pictures do the talking! Well ... some of it, anyway!
It's not for the fainthearted - or the unfit - either. But ... not to be outdone by the Grey Nomad grandmother with foot problems who'd told me all about how she'd managed the climb the day before, I cast those concerns aside and headed for the top.
All I wanted to do when I reached the top was plunge into the pool to cool off - at any cost! So, dumping my backpack into a random rocky crag, casting outer clothing aside and pushing hapless tourists out of my way, I did!!
Once I'd recovered, I could appreciate the magnificent rewards of this fabulous spot.
