Mt Elizabeth Station to El Questro. 20180609

Today’s focus was to get to our destination unscathed as we had quite a few kilometres to travel. Ironically we were relieved to be back on the GRR road after our 36km bypass overnight, given the road to Mt Elizabeth was very corrugated and windy. This driver also discovered that…

Imintji to Mt Elizabeth Station. Three gorges. 20180608

A big day exploring three gorges on our route today. Yet it was sad to leave our accommodation and our short term friends who we shared dinner with last night and breakfast this morning. Nevertheless, we managed to fit in Adcock¬†Gorge, Galvans Gorge and Manning Gorge. Managed a swim at…

Imintji and Bell Gorge. 20180607

Sunrise was welcomed as it brought some warmth as well as the stunning colours on our adjacent range as shown below. We had a sleep in then by local standards, starting breakfast around 7:15 and then encouraged to get on our way to Bell’s Gorge early before the hordes descend….

Broome to Imintji. 20180606

We set off from Broome at about 7am as we had things to see and kilometres to drive. We got to Derby early, topped up with fuel, and started the trek on the Gibb River Road, it starting just near Derby to its east. Initial travelling was all on sealed…

Broome transition day 20180605

Today started with an early morning walk on the magnificent Cable Beach. We were not alone but given there is 22 kilometres of gorgeous white smooth sand, so expansive from sand dunes to the water’s edge due to the receding tide, it was most relaxing to just walk out and…

Broome Cable Beach 20180604

Today marks the end of our campervan trip from Perth, over the past three weeks. However, we savoured the last few hours this morning to first admire the lovely sky at sunrise, and after, be fascinated by the haste of the incoming tide, just adjacent to our camp site. You…

Eighty Mile Beach WA. 20180602

Last stop before we arrive in Broome and hand the camper back. We travelled about 470 km from Karratha today, and in advance, decided to only stay one day here, instead arriving in Broome one day earlier than planned, to get ready for the next phase of our holiday through…

Karratha. 20180601

First day of Winter in Oz. No worries in the Pilbara at a comfortable 31 degrees. Cool and very omfortable here in the evening in Karratha too. After an early exit from Exmouth, we did have a very uneventful drive to Karratha. The roads were all very good and well…

Exmouth day 3. 20180531

Today¬†was a lay day for both travellers so we embraced the mundane of supermarket shopping, a massage for this old bloke, a visit to the best bakery for lunch and not much else. Probably baked beans and toast for tea after an extravagant but yummy meal out last night, just…
