I'm a bit jalous Ian, you having a pilot as a son ;-)) Nice series of aerial pictures. Greetings Berend
We (a group of 7 of us, my son included) are going to attempt a full descent (and ascent) of the Yabba Falls gorge on Saturday, Berend. I believe we can descend to the Top Plunge Pool then negotiate our way through the Kennys Cataract section. I think there is a way around Stehbens Chute (pictured centre of photo) by going down on the south side.
I am sure there will be some wonderful photo opportunities once we are down there.
Beautifull shot, like, Hervé
Thank you, Hervé, it is a beautiful and at the same time rugged landscape.
Much of the country around here has been transformed by extensive use of fire and serious timbergetting, but this rugged section has sheltered some small areas of forest that are special.
This gorge and the falls were highly significant to the original indigenous population, the Baiyambora tribe of the Kabi speaking people. In fact, the Baiyambora hosted bunyi bunyi festivals in the area just above the falls when several hundred aboriginal people would gather for the annual harvest of the bunya nuts (Araucaria bidwillii).
Can't wait to see your pictures Ian. Greetings Berend
Just picked up on this reply of yours, Berend. You have certainly seen the pictures now, and you could qualify to be a guide to this special place that few have seen.
Greetings from the Yabba Valley.
