We had a look at Elizabeth Springs on the way into the National Park. We couldn't find a real spring. The best I could do was some wet areas on the top of some of the mounds but it didn't flow anywhere and was quickly soaked up.
In it's own way the dry gibber plain we parked on was more impressive.
The water hole was full, it had obviously been overflowing over the road recently. As the lady at the min min centre in Boulia had said the sites here were pretty small, and not suitable for large caravans. We did check out the other campground later on and seeing we are small this is or preferred campground.
Whistling Kite Nest.
At first I didn't think this nest was occupied. It was only by using the binoculars that we saw this almost fully fledged chick.

Night - no moon yet. Time to play with some star shots.
