Savannah Way - AWC'S 'Pungalina' and 'Seven Emu'
This morning we bid farewell to Lawn Hill and continue along the Savannah Way, crossing over the border into the Northern Territory. Not far into the Territory we turnoff and head into the Australia Wildlife Conservancy's (AWC) 'Pungalina' and 'Seven Emu'. Together the two properties cover a combined area of around 305,000 hectares and include coastal monsoon rainforest, tall paper bark forests, palm fringed wetlands, deep gorges and coastal flood plains. The properties are home to over 40 species of mammals, 190 species of birds and 95 species of frogs and reptiles. We arrive at 'Pungalina' late this afternoon and set up camp for the next two nights.
Note: 'Seven Emu' is owned by Mr Frank Shadforth with 110,000 hectares of the property leased to the Australian Wildlife Conservancy for conservation. 'Pungalina' is wholly owned by AWC. (B, L, D)
