I'll repeat it - I love Aussie RRs! Such a beautiful, untamed, unpopulated, wild country. It's interesting that the wildlife keeps you on your toes. Great report. Thanks.

Who needs hi tech, lightweight camping gear? Give me cast iron! Gotta' admit, you can't beat its utility. I'm envious of your proximity to beautiful scenery. Good post.
