El Questro as mentioned in our previous post, was very fancy and quite large! They had a number of gorges and walks that you could visit and complete whilst staying there, they even had a double-sided page for each explaining all you needed to know. Unfortunately even with both sides of the piece of paper … Continue reading Our last day on the Gibb: Exploring El Questro
Another night at Drysdale Station complete, it was time to continue along the Gibb. So back towards the Gibb we drive, turning off the Kalumburu road, with our first stop being Ellenbrae. We had heard, from many of our ‘grandparent’ friends and passing chats, that Ellenbrae, even though it was not on the official tourist … Continue reading Ok we have had enough of bumpy roads, get us to El Questro!
The day began like all others, we got up. The drive to Mitchell Falls was estimated to take us around 4-5 hours, so we headed off quite early with myself driving. About 10km after turning off the Kalumburu road onto the track to Mitchell Plateau, there was a water crossing. As we went through we … Continue reading Day 6 and 7: Mitchell Plateau and our mysterious missing number plate…
Our day began, of course, by waking up at Mt Elizabeth Station. When we checked in they mentioned they had two gorges on the property that could be visited, one was a little tough and you were recommended to having high clearance on your vehicle, the other did not have anything in particular that seemed … Continue reading Day 5 at Drysdale Station, where the beers are flowing
Today we got up nice and slowly, taking our time, even though it got hot really quickly! The reason behind our slow start, other than because we can, was we saw many other campers leaving bright and early (through our tent window) to the gorge. We did not want to get there and it be … Continue reading Yet another gorgeous day: our 4th on the Gibb
Our third day began nice and early, a record for us, getting away from camp at 8:57am! We stopped in at the Imintji Store, the first real place along the Gibb that sold essentials such as; fresh coffee, Internet and diesel for $2 Ltr. After a small browse, we left without buying anything and continued … Continue reading Day Three: Swinging From Trees
We slept in till around 8am this morning. Of course we were woken up by those who like to get on the road quickly, and those with children, but after that we took the morning to sleep in and it was wonderful. After our simple breakfast of eggs (Alex) and yoghurt (I), because noting these … Continue reading Day Two on the Gibb: Another Day, Another Gorge, Another HOT Shower
So the car has been fixed and we are off towards the Gibb River Road, YAY! We count this as our official starting point, based on what you would have read in our last post. Our first nights stop on the Gibb was Windjana Gorge National Park, 21km off the main road. We arrived mid … Continue reading OK…Now Officially Our Trip on the Gibb River Road Begins!
We have departed Broome, it was fantastic but we were itching to get on the road again and head to our next anticipated adventure…Derby! Nah just kidding, we intended on driving through Derby, stopping at the visitors centre to get some information on the Gibb River Road and then continuing. Our plan was stopped when … Continue reading Our Trip on the Gibb River Road Begins!
