Cockburn Ranges – Part 3

The Cockburn Ranges are most accessible at the various cattle stations that line its route. We stayed at El Questro – a million acre former station, now tourist enterprise.

At Emma Gorge, we walked right into the range. The sandstone cliffs there were a very bright shade of ochre.

And there was also again some interesting geology. These are ripple marks from 450 million years ago – evidence of an ancient shore line.

The local flora was also very striking. This is the Kimberley Rose.

And the shadier and cooler it got, the more palms we saw.

It’s certainly a diverse landscape.
