Featuring Our World : Windjana Gorge and Lennard River

Featuring Our World (Post#14) : Windjana Gorge and Lennard River

Windjana Gorge for me has its own unique beauty. I love the surroundings. I just thought that the dry land area where we sit at that time to observed the “Freshies” (Freshwater Crocs) and to watch fruit-bats most likely under the water during wet season. And it was another amazing environment to see the crocs in their natural habitat which is the Lennard River and the surroundings of the gorge itself. The gorge is made out on Napier Range because of the Lennard River, as per study, the whole place was under the ocean 300 million years ago. I can’t comprehend how long was that.

Life Of Others : Windjana Gorge – Fruit Bats

Life Of Others (Post#17) : Windjana Gorge – Fruit Bats

One unique thing that I experienced while in Windjana Gorge was the time to observe thousands of fruit bats flying away from the gorge before the place gets totally dark. Before, I wonder why we visited the gorge when it’s already sunset. Then I realized why, because our tour guide wanted us to witness the moment where these bats leaves the gorge for feeding time. We had been watching the bats around or almost half an hour and I felt like it’s too many bats that I was thinking if there will be a time that they will be all gone.
