Litchfield Part One

We spent all day Friday exploring Litchfield National Park.  Our first stop was the Buley Rockholes and Florence Falls.  There were lots of people swimming in the many pools at Buley and at Florence Falls. 

 We stopped next at Tolmer Falls.  An impressively tall waterfall with a lookout accessed by a short paved path.  You can't explore down around the falls because a colony of rare Orange Horseshoe Bats that like the warm, humid caves surrounding the falls live there.  The falls in Litchfield National Park flow so much even during the dry season because the sandstone rock they flow from soaks up water similar to a sponge during the wet season.
