Back on the Gibb.

Going back through the many hundred shots from the top end trip and this one came together quite nicely I thought. The Gibb River road has changed a lot since our last trip along it around ten years ago, there are a lot more sealed sections of road now and this is one part coming out of one of the creeks. the road is like freeway these days and could be driven with a two wheel drive car at the right time of the year.

      Yeah not sure it’s for the best but with more people up there now I guess the pressure is on to make it a bit easier. To crowded for me on the Gibb River.

    Yes I quite agree, I wish things sometimes stayed the same. I have been up in Coral Bay for a week and I could not believe how much it has changed…

      We stayed a few days up at Charnley river station formally Beverley Springs and they think the road up grade is great. They can get from there to Derby in 4.5 hours now and it used to take them around 6 hours 10 years ago and their 4×4 was trashed when they arrived. Still it has lost a bit of it’s outbackness for sure.
      Not sure if you have been up that way Peta, It is a great spot photos out at the gorges on the station and the camping area is nice and informal. Might want to check it out for your tour next year.

      Cheers Pete.

    hey stranger,
    good travels by the looks of things! I always pictured the Gibb as a pair of tyre tracks in the dirt, oh well…. dismisses that vision hey!
    Forgot to call you back today…. sorry about that!!! I’ll be back there on Thursday, otherwise drop me an email.
    Cheers mate.
    Paul.
