Finch Hatton Gorge Near Mackay QLD
Very cute nat park 80km West of rather over-civilized and materialist Mackay.
I crossed a 20m ford, 30cm deep water to get to the Platypus Bush camp. Run by a Wizzened old character. small camp with basic facilities. But right next to the roaring river. Met a French couple there and had a good time chatting and talking re work and life in Australia.
A few minutes up the dirt road are 2 walks to waterfalls. I took the shorter one. Very wild jungle... misty mountains and steep inclines.
