Bluff River Gorge

Sunday 13 October 2019

We reached the point of entry to Bluff River Gorge at the same time as 4 motor bike riders, but as they sped off south the sound of bikes quickly faded.
Eroded rock patterns

Although we all have been here several times, the length and convoluted route still surprises. You also forget how many spots there are where great care is required whilst traversing narrow ledges. Overall there are 40 or 50 of these risky bits, many where a fall would be fatal
The flowers were good, especially the Boronia and tetratheca. Overall though perhaps not as good as some years. Morning break under a huge cliff, disturbed a Peregrine Falcon that circled us vocally.
Parts of the track were indistinct, some obscured by fallen vegetation. Scenically it was just as good as ever and the weather good and mostly sunny.

It took about 5 ¼ hours, including breaks for the 9.25k walk
