Following the road east from Mataranka out to Roper Bar brings you into the top of Limmen National Park. The Northern region of the park is popular with Barramundi fishermen, but heading south along a badly corrugated road towards Cape Crawford brings you to Butterfly Gorge and a number of areas dotted with strange sandstone formations.
Butterfly Gorge (minus waterfall at end of dry season)
This little Azure Kingfisher spent a lot of time patiently watching the ever diminishing waterhole for fish.
Pillars of sculpted rock.
Heading south east, we camped at the Ayrshire Hills. Another spectacularly weathered landscape 70kms out of Winton.
