Porcupine Gorge National Park
I arrived at this park late in the day and my only friend was a Rock Wallabie who wanted to steal my food. The next day I proceeded down the steep track to the actual gorge, this is a great place to visit so much to see from rock pools to Persistent plants trying to grow in the rocks that surrounded the river bead. This small plant caught my eye and I though of just what a hard life it had and will have. Growing in rock was hard enough but growing in a rock wall which every year would be washed clean by the annual floods was a pretty hard gig for a little plant. That is why I titled this photograph “Persistence”.
The one thing I love about travel is you can plan a trip in outline form but never really know exactly where you will end up. Porcupine Gorge is just one of those places the morning of me arriving in Porcupine Gorge I had no idea where I would end up. It was only at about 3pm did I have a rough idea where I would be camping that night. As I cooked dinner at my campsite I was greeted by a very tenacious rock wallaby who wanted food (something you should never do is feed wildlife). The next day I discovered Persistence.
Porcupine Gorge National Park is in North West Queensland, approximately, 1,200 km northwest of Brisbane.
