cyclonic: Well it was always going to be a challenge. Sadly, it seems this cache has succumbed to the ravages of the remote Kimberley. Cache owner is unable to maintain due to the extremely remote location.
Well done to those who reached the geo zone. An epic feat in itself. Time now to archive. Cyclonic

Geocache Description:

Upper reaches of the Sale River, Kimberley, WA. Boat or helicopter required. A once in a life time cache!

Cache is located amongst the rocks above the "camping beach". This beach is the North bank of a rock pool. Boat access to the pool is possible over the rock bar only on tides over 10.5m. At lower tides a dighy can be anchored below the rock bar, in a permanent pool.

Behind the beach is a clear freshwater stream running down a gorge through very dense luxuriant rainforest. One pool, approximately 100m upstream of the beach, is a great spot for a swim next to a warm water spring.
Further upstream above a small waterfall in the main river is the Sale River gorge. There are large freshwater lagoons with freshwater crocs (and possibly salties?) paperbark trees and rock pools with brilliant water lilies. Swimming in these could be a bit risky.

Additional Hints (No hints available.)
