Polemi Bat Cave
It's amazing what you can discover when you go for a drive and stop to have a look around. It started with a pond, continued with a gorge, and then went full circle back to the pond. In this, the final episode of our little saga, we cross from the pond back to the lip of the gorge itself, and are greeted by a multitude of bats, and a couple of friendly hounds.
The Field Of Play
In this trip, we travel from Polemi Pond to Polemi Gorge, and finally get a close-up look of the fissures we have hitherto only seen from above, via drone footage.
We begin by taking the goats track away from the pond. This is probably the trickiest part of the walk. You need to make sure you have decent footware as it can be prickly in places.
To The Gorge
Once you are up that slope it is a fairly sedate walk.
The route takes us past some rocks we first observed a couple of articles ago.
You can see where bits of gyspsum have been cut away. I wonder how long ago they were doing this? I have found similar old mines throughout the area, and towards Lemona.
