Temple Gorge Camping Ground

Over 1,200 kms from Perth.

The first thing you have to do here is trust me. I didn't do a thing to these photos. No auto contrast, no saturation of colours, no nothing. This is in the Kennedy Ranges, within the Temple Gorge Campground, Gascoyne. Run by park volunteers. One waterless uni-sex toilet, no showers, no water. No internet. No mobile coverage. No alternative accommodation within less than 200 kms or so. No shops.

Just quiet perfection. And colour.

What do people do for shopping then? I realise there aren't many people.

Beautiful colours in the pix. Quite a wild spot.

Whatever you need, you take with you, including water. When you run out, you leave...

The people looking after the park come for a few weeks at a time and I guess if they run out, they drive 200kms to Gascoyne Junction and back again. I think the Gascoyne Traders come by once a week or thereabouts, but you have to order in advance.

That's what I was wondering about, the people looking after it. I guess they would mostly know what to order from the traders each time they see them, and if they don't a couple of weeks is not too long to wait for something.
