Govetts Leap, Blackheath
Charles Darwin visited Australia and his diary makes fascinating reading. Later in life he tried to work it all out, and ran into a problem.
"About New Zealand, at last I am coming round & admit it must have been connected with some Terra firma; but I will die rather than admit Australia." - Charles Darwin (August 1863, an argument at Kew Gardens)
Charles Darwin stood here and looked at Govett's Leap. He tried hard to understand Australia, but thirty years after leaving the place forever, he admitted defeat.
This week, after a couple of sharp rainfalls, the creek has recharged. It will take a little longer for the hanging gardens on the cliffs to recover from the drought.
