We finally left Broome on the 1st of October and headed off to experience the Gibb River Road. We had wanted to do this for a long time so we were eagerly anticipating this part of Australia.
We started off in Fitzroy Crossing so we could do a boat tour down Geikie Gorge. The temperature was around the 43° mark which hit us quite hard. We stayed there for 2 nights and then headed off to see Tunnel Creek before setting up at Windjana Gorge. After Windjana where we finally turned onto the Gibb River Road.
The drive was beautiful and scenic, not what either of us expected. Our next stop was at Bell Gorge for the night. After walking into Bell Gorge the next day we packed up and headed off. During that day we visited Galvin's Gorge and the service station for an icecream which was a bit of a luxury considering the heat.
We spent that night at the Barnett River Gorge. The next day we headed to Mount Elizabeth Station which not only had beautiful gorges but also farm animals, which the girls loved. They got to feed a calf and a baby donkey milk which was great.
Our last stop was a couple of nights at El Questro ... unfortunately we didn't fork out the $3000 / night price tag to stay where the rich and famous go!
We loved doing the Gibb River Road and we agreed that Bell Gorge was the highlight for us. The journey was very hot and we had a few casualties with batteries not charging, spot lights breaking and a multitude of thong deaths but all in all we are glad we experienced it and we enjoyed the Gibb's many pleasant surprises.

We are a family who are just seeking to do what God wants us to do. We have heard God speak and we want to be obedient to his voice, and are excited by what He is going to do when we respond!
