Gibraltor Ranges National Park

Roger and I headed up to the Gibraltor Ranges National Park, turning left at Grafton and heading north west for nearly a 100kms. The day was overcast, yet bright as we travelled through farmlands with grazing cattle and long dry grass waving in the wind. Slowly heading up in to the ranges, the long stony river on our right reminded me of travelling through northern India. Stony river beds, dry grasses and a slow trickle of water in some places, and quiet pools upstream.

Winding up through the forest we headed into the park and came to the start of the Anvil Rock walk. Donning our packbacks we started along the track and were rewarded with a blooming Waratah just 100 metres in. Ah, this is what we had come for! So beautiful, the single stem standing tall in the native growth. 

The forest was tinder dry yet the variety of small native flowers was exciting. The scents were heady and intoxicating.

On we walked, spotting these wonderful Waratahs here and there until we climbed the massive rocks to blessed with an outlook in all directions of amazing craggy escarpments, mountains, hills, forest... exquisite wilderness.  Sitting in wonder, we ate lunch, napped on a large boulder and then headed back to the car. Another two shorter walks in Washpool National Park on the way back, which was a complete change of scenery, similar to that of the local Dorrigo National Park - rain forest, bush turkeys and large dark canopies.
