Cape York 2014 - Jardine River

After conquering the OTT we headed to the South side of the Jardine River to set up camp for the night. Even though we had only travelled a short distance we were keen for a good nights sleep.
Our camp spot was right on the bank of the river at the old crossing. We were wary of crocs when we went for a walk to get water from the river. The water looked refreshing and clear.


When it was time for bed we headed to the safety of our thin fly screen tent :). We soon heard a swooshing sound. The sky was filled with bats, some of which came in low to feed on a nearby flowering tree.  During the night we began to be paranoid at every splash in the water just behind us. Who knows what is out there?
