    My goodness, knew about the area with a vague idea of its archeolpgical significance and glacial deposits nearby, and have spent decades wandering around the Flinders and Kakadu and Africa and up and down the Himalaya and further, and I live within 30 ks and have never been there!…Nice photo

  • Sounds like you wander as much as me !! Sometimes some of the most interesting areas are under our noses :-)) Thanks John
