Getting away from Edith Falls camp ground (part of Katherine gorge national park) was a done differently - not many people drive away how we did......................................
We filled up with deisel several days earlier @ a woolies fuel outlet in Katherine. No issues driving the car until yesterday morning.
The water in fuel light came on in the dashboard. On & off a couple of times & then stayed on for 100 mtrs. Better pull over into car park or we could have a stuffed motor & expensive repair job. Rod couldn't get valve open to bleed the fuel filter. Called RACQ with our 'ultimate care' card no*. Someone from Adelaide then organizes a breakdown service to come 60kms to us from Katherine.
2 hrs later a tow truck turns up........... to load car onto tray back & tow the van back to Katherine................
interesting concept, but can be done & did!!!
We aren't gorged out yet by a long shot. Have dozens more to see in the next 6 mths & this 1 didn't disappoint. 1/2 hr dirt road, & some slow & sometimes arduous rock hopping for 1 hr further into the gorge to see most of it was worth the effort.
This is Umbrawarra Gorge near Pine Creek.
The beautiful red cliffs were magnificent & quite jagged formations over millions yrs of erosion.
The camp area we are staying in @ Pine Creek is quite different & thought I might share with you. Outside our van door is the finish line to the local Pine Creek race track. Inside the race track is a 9 hole golf course. Next to 1 of the 9 holes is the biggest of several termite mound around the race track / golf course.
