The Blue Waterholes on the head of the Goodradigbee River, is one of my favourite spots in KNP. I've visited it at least 20 times to camp, fish, explore and especially to walk down the limestone gorge, criss-crossing the water course to have lunch at the waterfall. On one visit I found that a Park Ranger had collected a group of about ten visitors to lead them on a conducted walk. I knew the ranger and she asked me to join the group - we could both give the commentary.

HMO North reports on another successful Easter workparty at Old Currango homestead.
7 KHA volunteers, 4 1/2 days, 12 litres of paint and 2 large bags of rubbish collected and removed.
Last year, 2013, KHA purchased a replacement pot bellied stove for Tin Hut, the old one had well and truly had it after many decades of service.
NPWS kindly flew the new one in and installed it for us.
Recently Martin enjoyed the new stove's hospitality and kindly send in a couple of photos so we could all share the warmth!
Thank you Martin.
The horses are revolting...
