We then follow the boabs and the Devonian Reef / Napier Range to Tunnel Creek, well hidden in the fascinating geology of this limestone reef with its many boab trees and picturesque complex shapes. This is where the Aboriginal freedom fighter Jandamarra and the Bunuba Resistance was centred in the 1890s, depicted in 2 novels and a recent stage production. Here we can don torches and shorts to wade through this incredible underground river system full of stalagmites and stalactites and even an under ground spring. Alternatively take a short walk in the shady and refreshing surrounding area by the creek that feeds the underground water system.

Heading east we arrive at Fitzroy Crossing which is an education and supply centre for surrounding cattle stations and Aboriginal communities.  Overnight accommodation at Fitzroy Crossing. LD
