Dear Füsun,

This narrow gorge conceals the Yabba Falls, the Plunge Pool and cataracts which are about 60m below at this point. My son (pictured) had come with me 30 years ago when we hiked up the valley towards these falls, but then we had to climb out without seeing them because it became too rugged and we had to be out of the gorge before sunset. So he was thrilled to be here recently, having waited 30 years for this opportunity. "And Dad has waited 60 years for this day," he told the others in the party. And that was true.

While I had seen the first drop of the falls from the top several times, I had never been able to explore the gorge down below or to discover the fantastic variety of features that exist.

What a day it was for all of us.

I look forward to revealing this landscape to you.

Warmest regards,

Ian
