Karijini Hancock Gorge Below Regan's Pool

The adventure continues!

Ok, so to recap: we started at the Knox Gorge, abseiled to the chute, took a 5 meters plunge into a pool, another abseil in the waterfall into another pool, paddled in the tube for a mile along the Red Gorge, climbed another chute in the Hancock Gorge and here were are just about to walk to Regan's Pool. Phew! That was a busy day! I tried finding the name of this place, with no luck - unfortunately because like many other places in this area, this one is also has something magical in it and in my mind it deserves to have a name. Any clue anyone?

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes.
