 No shortage of portage during the Dry - it probably took more time than the paddling. Luckily the whole thing is so spectacular, none more than the fifth and sixth gorges.

 Great Bowerbird (technical term), Litchfield National Park. Such an Attenborough moment watching him tenderly thatch this bower, which is a display chamber, not a nest, and fastidiously decorate it with green and white objects to impress the ladies. At the campsite that meant mozzie coils and discarded tinfoil, as well as the regular old shells and melaleuca.
