We camped that night at Barcoo Swamp campsite - and were joined around the campfire by another party camped there - Rowan and Julie. Thanks Rowan for sharing a great dessert (strawberries cooked in Cointreau and served with cream.....)

The next day - Albert headed off for some mountain biking near Glenbrook, and Dan and Corinne also headed off on bikes for a ride near where we had camped. The rest of the party headed off for another canyon.
