Lake Moondarra to have a bbq dinner. Lots of birds, including a firekite in her nest feeding her young.
Light rain all night.
Camooweal Caves National Park – sinkholes in the dolomite. Nowranie Caves – beautiful orange colours in the stone, can be up to 75m deep, with unstable edges. Apparently at least 80 of them, but we saw only 2.
Waterhole – lots of birds, we counted at least 19 species, including an owl, flocks of darting budgerigars, corellas, willy wagtails, firekites, quail, galahs, pee-wees, a falcon, apostlebirds, ducks, a couple of varieties of waders and bustards. Strangely, none of the finches featured on the National Parks sign.
Mud mounds around the edge, maybe yabbies, or there are remains of small crabs. Only one other couple, Vanessa and Tim, from Newcastle. You know you are in the outback when everything is covered in fine red dust, and you have to start doing the Aussie Salute!
