WA you have been great!

Kununurra you interesting place... After our weekend away to Purnululu National Park we headed back towards Kununurra. Our stop there was only going to be brief by intention and then we would head out of WA and into the unknown and excitedly anticipated NT.

Our last day on the Gibb: Exploring El Questro

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

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.

As we went through we … Continue reading Day 6 and 7: Mitchell Plateau and our mysterious missing number plate…

Yet another gorgeous day: our 4th on the Gibb

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

Day Three: Swinging From Trees

Our third day began nice and early, a record for us, getting away from camp at 8:57am!

After a small browse, we left without buying anything and continued … Continue reading Day Three: Swinging From Trees

Day Two on the Gibb: Another Day, Another Gorge, Another HOT Shower

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
