As you travel from NT, this is the last campsite near the road before you arrive at WA, and what a good one.

Number 173 in CAMPS 9, it is 117km west of Timber Creek – where we bought petrol.   Just frozen bread on offer from their store – so it was  a Saos and tomato,  wraps and spreads kind of lunch.    After our drive from Katherine, the kids were happy just to be out of the motorhome.

After taking our towels out to air, and utilising the ‘facilities’, our tired travellers acquired a picnic table.  (As you can see from this photo – can you spot the toes on the other seat?)

We also demolished our fruit, vege and honey as 70km on and you are at the border to the quarantine and time difference.

There are disabled toilets, BBQ and shade at this site, plus it is suitable for big rigs, pet friendly and note it is 24 hours only. Best of all are those views, a beautiful precursor to the ranges of the Kimberley!

Phillip and Carolyn gave it the CAMPS tick of approval and said to to enjoy the wildlife and sunset on the escarpment.

It is recommended you get here early, because it fills up quickly. I can see why.
