After a slow morning of washing and computer duties, we headed off from our base camp at Kurrajong to the far end of the Bungles – 1 hr, 10minutes, to the Piccaninny Creek car park where we planned to spend the day walking.

From Kurrajong camp to the 3 ways intersection is 5.8km, taking 11minutes. We stopped for a few photos along the way but it was still just over an hour to our destination – we had been told it would take 1.5hrs.

There are 3 walks from the car park 1. Piccaninny Creek (total length 30km) 2. Dome Walk (1km loop) and 3. Cathedral Gorge (2km- which can take in the dome walk at either the start or finish). We spent 3hrs walking, with extensive photo stops – we also ventured along the first part of the Piccaninny Creek walk (just a few hundred metres) to take in the views of the dry creek bed set against the bungle range.

On the way back to camp Leah had a nappy “blowout” which covered her car seat and needed urgent attention, really making everyone’s day. By the end of the day, we were all totally “shuttered” out and although it was a magnificent sunset we couldn’t be bothered going to the lookout for more photos – even though it was also the night of the full moon!
