Gregory National Park

Neither of us could remember ever visiting Gregory NP, so we decided to stay over for two nights in the
tiny town of Timber Creek NT. We took the boat off (it bangs too much when we go 4WDing), went up and got some park info, then realised we actually spent three nights here about 6 years ago, visited the park and put the boat in on the Victoria river.

With the site paid for, we decided to make the best of it and go visit the national park once again. It’s very pretty and beats sitting in the caravan park for a day, although the park behind the BP servo is pretty nice if you had to sit all day. They feed a few crocs and birds down at Timber Creek daily at 5pm which is interesting.

I have a couple of friends, and the three of us recently formed a private photography group in the hope of helping each other improve our skills. Each week or so we have a challenge and this weeks is “Patterns” I decided to take advantage of Gregory NP and hunt out as many interesting patterns as I could. It certainly make for a fun day and helped us both see the park through different eyes.

Once again, we visited Bullita Homestead and Stock Yards, the Calcite Flow (looks like a waterfall but is actually calcium deposited over the rocks) and the Tufa Dams (another calcium formation/build up) that creates dams along the creek through the park.
