It was good to get off the beaten track, away from the hot tarmac and lines of caravans.
Out on the lonely backroads.
But there is comforts to found off the beaten track!
Tallaroo Hot Springs https://www.talaroo.com.au/ where I took a soak in a private hot pool. The new Talaroo Hot Springs Complex is being being newly renovated.
My next stop was the little town of Einasleigh site of the beautiful Copperfield Gorge.
With the Einasleigh Pub a welcoming place to visit at the top of the gorge.
The Savannah Way is dotted with beautiful springs, rivers and waterholes
Like Jacobs Lagoon
And the Einasleigh River
Which I had to cross.
The sun is getting higher in the sky. Time to go for a swim in the gorge !!!
Followed the river over the rocks and little rapids to a beautiful beach at the northern end of the gorge. The perfect spot to strip off for a swim!

Now I’m jealous. No excuse not to go as this is close to Cairns. Thanks for showing me what’s available to see.
No definitely no excuse. Just follow the Savannah Way signs. It’s beautiful country and great camping grounds.
Now this would be a great place to visit.
Is that you crossing the flooded road or were you smart enough to let someone else go through first! Cheers Pauline
Ah there was 4wd who had just crossed. The driver then took the pics of me crossing. It was only a couple of inches deep
