After leaving Broome we headed south with two destinations in mind – Barn Hill Station stay and Eighty Mile Beach. Both being two very different experiences. Barn Hill is a bush camp/caravan park that’s pretty basic but sits atop a ridge overlooking the ocean and has some pretty interesting rock formations and lovely beaches and … More More Fishermen then Fish!!
After much anticipation and researching etc we were really keen to get up to the Dampier Peninsula, north of Broome. It’s about 200 kms to the top at Cape Leveque, half of it unsealed and half sealed. The part that’s sealed is owned by the Bardi people who welcome visitors with open arms and encourage … More Dampier Dreamings
After clicking over 8000kms we left Derby and got into Cable Beach and finally got the much anticipated view of the west coast and the Indian Ocean. Yahhhhh!!! This ocean has the most amazing colours, as beautiful as we remembered. We enjoyed 6 nights of luxury at the Mantra Frangipani, a decision made ages ago to … More Broome and Cable Beach Revisited
The decision was made to go to see the horizontal falls in the Buccaneer Archipelago, so we knew there was a seaplane and jet boat involved but then we decided to stay out there overnight and it became so much more. We were part of a group of 26 who stayed out, 2 x 14 … More Overnight at the horizontal “hotel”
We ended up staying in Derby a bit longer than planned but we enjoyed it, caught up on some exercise, washing and very selfishly indulging in good coffee every day!! Hey I even found a bottle shop that had italian prosecco, happy days!
Excuse the play on words, couldn’t resist!! So one of the many attractions of the Gibb River Road is its’ many gorges. There are lots all along the length of the road and one of the amazing things about them is that although it’s the dry season they all have plenty of water and most … More GORGEOUS GORGES
We took a detour off the Gibb to go to Drysdale River Station so that we could leave the camper there while we went up to Mitchell Falls – we have a two man tent. We were fairly confident that the road would not be suitable to tow and what a good decision that turned … More ROAMING AROUND IN THE REMOTENESS!! 7000KMS AND COUNTING
Just a quick post because i felt that i didn’t really do Wyndham any justice by just putting up our brag fishing photos. It’s a strange little place and there really is not much there but the view from the Bastion which is a big hill behind the town is amazing. It looks out over … More Wyndham in the north
Our 1st official stop on the Gibb was El Questro but it’s not the real deal!! You don’t even have to hit the dirt to get there so it’s very much the tourist mecca. Lots and lots of people, caravans, buses, tour groups and camper trailers. People with dogs, a man with a pet parrot … More Escarpements and gorges – 1st stop on the Gibb.
The Pentecost ranges have been a highlight because of their size and beauty. We first saw them from Wyndham from the eastern perspective but when you follow the Gibb and cross the Pentecost river you see them up close from the other side. And they don’t disappoint. We stayed 2 nights at Home Valley station … More The Mighty Pentecost Ranges
