Albert Tognolini Rest Area, WA (280km South of Port Hedland)

Day 100 – 27th May 2011
Albert Tognolini Rest Area, WA (280km South of Port Hedland)

From the Dales Day Use area we followed the rim of the gorge from Circular Pool lookout to the Fortescue Falls lookout where we descended the steps down to the bottom of Dales gorge. We continued on to Fern Pool where we had a refreshing morning swim. Afterwards we retraced our steps to the falls and followed the creek side trail to Circular Pool. We decided not to go for a swim as this pool was still in the shade so it would have been pretty cold! Climbed back up to Circular Pool lookout where we started the walk. After lunch we decided to have one more swim before leaving Karijini NP so we walked back to Fortescue Falls.

Tips for visiting Karijini NP:
  1. Be prepared to travel on some reasonably corrugated roads.
  2. If you are thinking of doing an organised tour, look into it first thing. Also they only leave from the Eco Retreat not Dales campground.
  3. Hancock and Weano are the more spectacular gorges and have the more adventurous walks.
