Water at Mt Remarkable NP?

Postby Silknfeathers » Wed 06 Jun, 2018 2:40 pm

Almost always find water in the small creek running into Alligator Creek at Hidden Camp, and again in the "Loop Pool" in Mambray Creek (about 8k up from Mambray Creek Campground. However, I am told it is so dry at the moment there will definitely be no water (I have been told this before and still found water).

Anybody know the current situation?

Came home from there yesterday. Almost no water in Alligator Gorge or Hidden Gorge. Only some very small pools.

I can't comment specifically on Mt Remarkable NP, but I've just returned from many other locations in the Flinders and Gammon Ranges and whitefang's observation doesn't surprise me. Waterholes are either very low or have no water. There are scores of dead kangaroos around. One very emaciated one was so desparate it chose to drink despite my close presence. BYO H2O.
