6 Epic Station Stays for Gibb River Road Camping in Western Australia

Here’s what we most liked about the Epic Station Stays you find along the Gibb River Road in Western Australia’s Kimberley. They are strategically located to step your way through the iconic 4WD road, one at a time. All but one are pet friendly! Most are unallocated bush type camping which we love, we mixed these up with stops in National Parks. Surprisingly like the stations, you still have access to hot showers and flushing toilets! How luxe. Home Valley Hills Rustys Bar and Grill was still relaxing, 11 years after we first arrived at Home Valley Station. However, even

Camp at Home Valley Station, Western Australia

We only stayed one night at Home Valley Station on the Gibb River Road, Western Australia – but it is a place I would love to return here to The Kimberley. Why? 1. It was the location we decided to continue our lap of Australia. Initially we had seven weeks – we had worked and played our way through outback NSW, touching the Murray in Victoria and South Australia – travelling up the centre and looping through the Top End. Relaxed, at this bar, we decided to keep going! And we did. 2. We received an upgrade! They were revamping

10 out of 10: Mitchell Falls Camp, The Kimberley, Western Australia

CAMPS Ambassador Amanda visited Mitchell Falls camp. She said: “We loved our truck overnighter here and all forgot how fun and comfy camping in the truck is. “A basic bush camp but with hybrid eco toilets and a water collection point for boiling, and fire pits.  What more do you need? “Fees were $17/adult or $40 family per night. Overall Mitchell Falls experience 10/10!” Ngarinyin and Wunambul people are the traditional custodians of Mitchell River National Park. You will need an online Uunguu Visitor Pass, before you arrive. Give yourself 4-6 hours for the round trip, walking through “rough country” to

The BEST Gibb River Road Gorges and which one is our favourite

Before we started the Gibb River Road, I did not realise how many safe swimming spots there were! Most of our days were spent “getting wet” at spectacular waterfalls and cool swimming holes. There are dozens more gorges to explore along the Gibb, here are our 6 BEST Gorges along the Gibb River Road!  Plus we disclose our very favourite, read why we rate Manning Gorge and the campground… Windjana Gorge View Windjana Gorge I heard it was over-rated, but I loved camping at Windjana Gorge under a “Devonian Reef”, spotting crocs and hiking with the sunrise and sunset… Emma

Why Manning Gorge is our favourite campsite and waterfall on the Gibb River Road

Manning Gorge has to be one of our favourite places on the Gibb River Road.           However, I can’t say it is my favourite hike! However it does have a bonus, read on to see why we reckon this spot is a must see in The Kimberley, Western Australia. 1.  The hike starts with a swim! That’s right, a bit of a novelty – place your gear in a halved 44 gallon drum and push it across the creek! Although you can wade through most, there is a section where walking is not an option. Years ago, the owners had a

Camp, Hike and Crocs at Windjana Gorge on Western Australia’s Gibb River Road

The local ranger said Windjana Gorge has 162 freshwater crocodiles! If you are travelling the Gibb River Road it is the first national park from the west and last from east in the famed Kimberley region. Set in the Bandilngan Windjana Gorge National Park (so no dogs) there is a generator area and “quiet” area. We are very impressed – hot showers and flushing loos! Remember you may need to BYO loo paper. Windjana Gorge has two walks, both are best in the cool of the day – early morning or late afternoon: The Savannah Trail (Class 3) 1km loop

You only need 4 things to hike Tunnel Creek, on Western Australia’s Gibb River Road – and where to camp

We’ve just hiked (swam!) Tunnel Creek,  just off the Gibb River Road in Western Australia’s Kimberley region – Dimalurru (Tunnel Creek) National Park. Here’s everything you need to know and bring! My adrenaline is still pumping. Good reasons, for that. It is known as a freshwater crocodile spot, friends who walked it the other day said they saw their beady eyes in the torch light. Us? Well we forgot our headlamp, and made do with light from the phone and our kind fellow hikers. So no crocs spotted from us. What to bring? Togs Reef shoes (or something you are
