Day 2 - Silent Grove to Mt Elizabeth

Enjoy your first morning waking up in the wilderness far away from the hustle and bustle of city life. On day 2 you will explore more of the region’s gorges including Bell, Galvans and Manning. Due to the incredible diversity of the north west the water levels at the time of your journey will determine which gorges you visit, however each are unique and awe-inspiring in their own right. After a day of exploring and swimming in these magnificent natural attractions we will travel to our overnight location on the working cattle station of Mount Elizabeth. (B, L, D)
