There were no tours available but we took a self tour of Split Rock which is 13 Klms south of Laura.
The walk was very steep, so we took our time. The views across the valley were fabulous.
The viewing platform made it easy to have a close look. The rock formations and their size were overpowering.
Bob's Lookout is about 140 Klms south of Laura on the Mulligan Highway. These ...
... Reef, our first encounter with the largest coral reef in the world. The trip had taken us up the east coast for more than 2500km and thus we decided it was time to leave the coast behind and explore the inland a bit more. Therefore, the next destination turned out to be the Blackdown Tableland National Park.
