Travelling around Oz - Quilt Project "Insanity"

Still working on covering my printed 1/2 inch hexagons.

We visited Nitmiluk Gorge, (name changed from Katherine Gorge to the aboriginal name Nitmiluk Gorge which means "Cicada Country"), we booked the Sunset Dinner Cruise which took us down the first two gorges as the setting sun turned the towering sandstone cliffs to a glorious shade of orange.

Nitmiluk Gorge winds alone 12km of sheer rock cliffs, they tower more then 70m high in some places and consist of 13 separate gorges, which contain a maze of waterways sculpted from sandstone.

On the way back we enjoyed a class of sparkling wine and a delicious three course candlelit meal, occasionally stopping to admire natures rugged beauty as we cruise down the Katherine River under a thousand stars shinning brightly above us. It was an OMG moment.

Another popular way to see the gorge is to hire canoes but we are to old for that challenge.

Until next time, happy quilting
