Section 7: Serpentine Gorge to Ellery Creek Big Hole

Great walk but poorly timed with the Run Larapinta, and 170 runners passed us on the way.

Welcome to 2022

The very wet summer means there is a lot of residual water around for the next few months and all that comes with it – tadpoles, fish, tadfrogs/frogpoles (the in-between stages), birds, snakes, lizards, not to mention the colourful displays of flowers and grasses.

We are having our first planning meeting for the year next Friday, February 18th and hopefully releasing the first walking schedule for 2022 soon after.

In the meantime, here’s a teaser of some of the summer walks (not formal club walks, obviously).

Early February wander through a Central Australian natural wonder (no, it’s not John Hayes rockhole and chain of ponds).
Beautiful January sunset. Scenes like this should be common over the first months of 2022

Recent walks

The recent rains and cooler weather meant that longer walks could be planned without the need to carry a lot of water.

The black colours after the bushfires of recent years have been replaced by greens and the diverse floral colours that Central Australia can reveal to and enthrall onlookers.
