The roads into Karajini National Park have been closed due to flooding, but Alex Bowlay from DEC has sent these images to us. Karijini has had around 230mm of rainfall in the past week. Following the recent rain many gorges and falls are flowing which never usually have water in them.
Every year the wet reveals the stark contrast between the arid desert country above the gorges, and the cool lush ravines that plunge into the earth. These gorges carry many thousands of litres of water and can be very dangerous. Karijini remains closed as DEC waits for the water to subside. Rangers will thoroughly check that the park is safe to reopen, especially the roads. They're expecting to reopen the park by the end of this week. - ABC Australia.
