One of the highlights of our 2012 Qld caravan trip. After leaving our van "Myrtle" at Burke & Wills Roadhouse with the man in charge keeping an excellent eye on it, we drove the bitumen/dirt road to Adel's Grove where we'd booked a room for three nights. A simple donger-type room, it was most comfortable (had electricity too). Outside loos and hot showers were not too far away and with the aid of a torch the loos were easily got to in the middle of the nigh. Meals were up at the main building and of a good standard. Good swimming in the river and a nice walk alongside though the foliage had suffered in the previous wet season. We drove into Lawn Hill early - a wise decision as we didn't have much of a wait to hire a canoe. As we paddled our way down through the gorge we just enjoyed seeing the wonderful scenery at the slow pace. We only went to the end of the first section as we were unable to clamber out of the canoe, lift it and our belongings out then carry it to the next part without being a lot younger and fitter. Still we thoroughly enjoyed what we did see. We enjoyed a sunset tour with wine and nibblies to the top of a nearby hill with wonderful views from Century Mine in the east to the gorge escarpment in the west. The Riversleigh Fossil Field was visited on a tour with another excellent guide who gave us loads of interesting information from the fossils themselves to the types of animals, trees and plants of the area. We had morning tea the the Gregory River crossing, a scene of one ot the postcards we purchased, always better to see the actual place. Lawn Hill had been on our to-do list and our expectations were greatly surpassed given the amount of interesting things and beautiful views we saw.
