The last activity of our Kimberley expedition was a Zodiac journey up the magnificent King George River this morning. The contrast between the blue sky and the glowing orange sandstone rocks while journeying along made for a very scenic twelve-kilometer cruise.
We spent time looking at birds and a crocodile on the way to the falls, and we stopped to study the honeycomb weathering and patterns in the sandstone. The river continues on top of the plateau for 125 kilometers, but our journey stopped at the eighty-meter falls. There was a little flow remaining from the wet season, and several guests dunked under the water for a Kimberley shower.
It was a wonderful way to finish our Kimberley adventure.
