Gascoyne Region

 

Western Australia
 

Gascoyne Junction, where the Lyons and Gascoyne Rivers meet, is two hours' drive (177km) east of Carnarvon and has a population of approx. 46 people. It is a centre for mining, pastoral and desert merino fine wool industries. The town now boasts a unique and traditional Aussie pub, and accommodation is available at farm stays and at the hotel. 60km north of Gascoyne Junction are the Kennedy Ranges, with 90 kilometre long springs, spectacular scenery of gorges and precipitous faces, with a vast plateau of ancient dune-fields on top of the range. Gascoyne Junction is also the gateway to Mount Augustus National Park where Mount Augustus rises 1106 metres above sea level. Mount Augustus is twice the size of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and has a stepped formation and tress on its flanks.

Two recently exposed Frauds

used to support evolution

Why do evolutionists, in the tradition of the famous ‘Piltdown Man’

and other hoaxes of the past, keep on promoting this sort of thing

(especially in textbooks)? Such deceptions are not because

people promote something they know is false—the perpetrators

of such frauds believe evolution. Check it out for yourself.

During rain there are numerous waterfalls off the Range.

 

 

Most likely the dirt roads will be closed during the wet and you will not be able to get in to see them. Shame really.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil.
It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones....
My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor detest His correction;
For whom the Lord loves He corrects, just as a father the son in whom he delights."
