Eaton Family's Aussie Adventure
We filled in our census at Kings Canyon and it was a notable place to do so as it is really quite spectacular. Amazingly you can stand right on the edges of these massive cliffs and many people do - it is quite scary - we kept well away. We still managed to get some lovely photos and had a magnificent walk. There is a lovely spot at the base of the canyon called the Garden of Eden as it is a permanent waterhole and some quite rare plants left over from the time when Australia had a lush interior - just like at Palm Valley, NT and Lawn Hill in Qld. It has been a fascinating lesson in Australia's creation and time as a wetter continent to the dry one it is today.
