Life Of Others : Tunnel Creek – Bats

Life Of Others (Post#18) : Tunnel Creek – Bats

When we are exploring Tunnel Creek which is an ancient natural cave, there are living things that lives inside and outside the cave. And in one part of the cave, we enjoyed to see them in daylight hanging around on trees and rock walls of the cave. And some of course in their hideout. When I looked at some photos that I captured, I was amazed I captured some of their flying activity that captured their shapes beautifully. It’s not only fruit-bats are staying in the cave, little cave bat, yellow-lipped bat (only in Kimberley) and orange leaf-nosed bat stays as well in the cave. These photos are part of Day 9 (Tunnel Creek, Derby and Broome) of 9 Days Darwin to Broome Overland Adventure Tour October 2016.

Something To Look At : Tunnel Creek, Bunuba and Jandamarra

Something To Look At (Post#13) : Tunnel Creek, Bunuba and Jandamarra

After coming out from Tunnel Creek natural cave, I had a time to look at the information boards at the entrance trail which I haven’t had a chance to read it before coming in. The boards both gives information about the walk into the Tunnel Creek cave with friendly neighborhood living things that lives inside the ancient natural cave and the historic information about Bunuba Aboriginal Tribe which Jandamarra led the resistance towards the white.  These photos are part of Day 9 (Tunnel Creek, Derby and Broome) of 9 Days Darwin to Broome Overland Adventure Tour October 2016.

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. These photos are part of Day 8 (Bell Gorge and Windjana Gorge) of 9 Days Darwin to Broome Overland Adventure Tour October 2016.

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.

Discovery : Queen Victoria Head in Gibb River Road

Discovery (Post#46) : Queen Victoria Head in Gibb River Road

Around two hours after we left Bell Gorge, we stopped along Gibb River Road, but I had no idea why. Then, Scotty our guide told us to look back and he mentioned about Queen Victoria Head rock which visible at the top of the road. When I looked back, I saw an interesting part of rocks that shapes like a head which significantly shows its pointed nose. Its kind of intriguing that even natures shows human head.
