Australia: The Land Where Time Began

A biography of the Australian continent 

Napier Range, Western Australia

The range is south of the King Leopold Range in the Kimberley region, running parallel with it. The Fitzroy River cuts through it at Geikie Gorge, the Lennard River at Windjana Gorge and the Barker River through the Barker Gorge. Tunnel Creek, in Tunnel Creek National Park,  also flows through a 750 m-long tunnel it cut in the reef.

The range is a long narrow ridge that is a section of the very large barrier reef that dates from the Devonian.

At 325 m (1066 feet), Mt Behm is the highest point of the range.

Tunnel Creek was the hideout of an Aboriginal bushranger, Jandamarra, who was killed there in 1897.
