a few places that Alan and I loved so much.(happy memories Of our time together ). Joanne wanted to see the places her Dad talked about so much now she knows why .
First Stop BERRY SPRINGS
***********************
During World War II, Berry Springs was part of a rest and recreation camp set up by the armed forces for the 100,000 personnel based in the area. A number of huts and weirs were built at Berry Springs during this time and you can still see the remains around the main pool. Berry Springs continues to be popular with locals and visitors as a place for rest and recreation.

Joanne just come from top of cascade sitting on water .

My favorite swimming hole Berry Springs (no crocs)

THen on the road to Litchfield Nature Park

Magnitic Termite Mounds

One of Litchfield National Park's unique sights is the hundreds of termite mounds standing up to two metres high in a wide swathe of empty ground. The mounds are like enormous magnetic compasses with their thin edges pointing north south and broad backs east west minimising their exposure to the sun, keeping the mounds cool for the termites inside. Nearby, a large cathedral termite mound stands..
