Lawn Hill Gorge, Boodjamilla National Park

We tied up the canoe at the boarding platform provided and swam across to the falls. The rocks we are standing make up the edge of the waterfall and are called Tufa. The water is so rich in lime here that the calcium carbonate builds up over rocks and vegetation gradually to form small delicate dams which is what has happened here. This makes a diffence in about 2metres from the middle gorge waters to the upper gorge waters.
