May 16, 2016 - Monday 16th to Thursday 26th May

Monday the 16th to Thursday 26th May 2016 We packed up early and was on the road by 8.30. We thought we might camp at Home valley for the night however seeing we were passing their gate 9am it was to early to call it a day. We stopped for lunch just before crossing the Durack River, which I must say when your in a little Suzuki Vitara and these people are in their big land cruisers and the water is a bit high over the crossing, they stand and watch us cross, even take photos, lol do they think we're not going to make it or are they their...

May 15, 2016 - Sunday 15th May El Questro

Sunday 15th May Two more gorges to go then we've finished with El Questro. We were told that Zebbedee hot Springs closes at 12 pm for all the campers and after 12 is for all the rich people that stay at the homestead for $2000 a night. We arrived there at 7.30 in the morning and already there were people bathing in the hot springs, it wouldn't be a place we'd visit again as there were a few small pools to bath in. Very disappointed. Next was Amalia Gorge, Boy! Now that tested us, it was 34 degrees and a 3 hour trek with long rocky dry river...

May 14, 2016 - Saturday 14th May

It is the day to tackle our first gorge on the Gibb, which was Emily Gorge the set up was the same as El Questro with accommodation, restaurant and bar. The 1.6 km walk into the gorge was very pretty and well shaded with palm trees, it wasn't a very hard track to walk just awkward in some parts as we were walking over pebbles, however it was very rewarding at the end with a much needed swim under the waterfall. After the swim and walk back, we purchased a takeaway coffee at the restaurant, took our sandwiches into the picnic area and had...

Aug 19, 2010 - Gibb River Road

La même famille avec qui nous avions voyagé pour arriver à Kununurra nous avait proposé que nous les accomagnons sur la Gibb River Road, une route accessible qu'en 4*4 réputé magnifique. La proposition de passer 4 jours sur une route mythique avec une famille australienne en grosse voiture est bien trop belle pour être écarté! Nous les retrouvons donc la veille du départ et faisons les courses de nourriture pour le temps qu'il nous faut. Puis nous partons. Nos amis Matt, Gemma et la petite Tess sont dans une voiture et nous voyageons avec...

Jul 17, 2006 - Gibb River Road

We packed up our tent, left our caravan again and headed off down the Gibb River Road with much excitement. The road had a lot of corrugations and 'woopdees' plus numerous creek crossings (much to the delight of the girls) but was not as bad as feared. From the car window we viewed a beautiful landscape of boab trees, termite mounds, ranges and gorges. Our first stop was Bell Gorge where we managed to secure a secluded campsite on the river banks. It was very peaceful there apart from the noisy birds. The ranger advised us of the presence...
