Lennard Gorge, on the notorious Gibb River Road in the Kimberley, Western Australia, is often left off the tourist maps of the area, but is a spectacular place to visit. The water cascades down a triplet falls into a lovely waterhole before making its way towards a second plunge far down into a deep, crystal-clear pool.
The reason it is so deep (according to the Dept of Environment and Conservation) is that one side is Dolerite, and the other is Sandstone, and as the Kimberley was lifted by geological forces, the river cut its way down through the join. What they don’t say is that this area is Bunuba country, and well-known to the Bunuba people for thousands of years.
