Breakfast and WiFi fix at the Dome cafe before buying some bug baskets (hats with netting) from store on Hay Street.

... across the top and back down much further up the canyon, we bumped into a rock wallaby - not sure who got the bigger surprise, then back along the creek bed through the stands of Red Cabbage palms, and couldn't get over how many there were, we came across some stunning scenes and a few excellent swimming holes, which we enjoyed later that afternoon.
