Sarah, Andy, Cal & I headed down to the Colo River on the long weekend. Water levels were still quite low (~0.6m at the BOM gauge) despite the recent rain, so we decided to head upstream from the bottom of Bob Turners track to check out Mailes Cave once again. Water levels upstream were more than adequate for the lilo trip upstream.

It was a pleasant walk down to the Colo River before the heat of the day. 

There was allot more grass on the sandy section at the bottom of Bob Turners.
We had a nice paddle up the river until we came to Mailes Cave (just past the second set of rapids). The obligatory “National Park” sign photo on the way out.

All the photos are in my gallery here.

Bob Turners Track (1 Dec 2013)

Today we headed off to the Colo River via Bob Turners track. The original plan was to go to Crawfords Lookout, but this was still shut due to the fire activity recently. The Bob Turners track is a nice hourish walk from the carpark with a lovely swimming hole on the Colo River.

Total distance: 7.39 km
Max elevation: 345 m
Min elevation: 26 m
Total climbing: 494 m
