The Gibb River Road is a 660 km track right through the wild heart of the Kimberley. The Gibb takes you from Derby to Kununurra through a spectacular landscape of intensely coloured ranges, dramatic gorges and lush rock pools and waterfalls. TRAVEL TIPS - GIBB RIVER ROAD Tip 1 - Simply enjoy the fantastic road The Kimberley's remote Gibb River Road remains one of Australia's great drives. You may find some helpful information under these links: www.thegibbriverroad.com/ www.kimberleyaustralia.com/ Tip 2 - Boab Prison Tree The Boab Prison Tree is a 1500 year old hollow tree 6 km south of Derby. It had been reputed to have been used in the 1890s as a lockup for indigenous Australian prisoners on their way to Derby for sentencing. Tip 3 - Silent nights with an open fire Have your own campfire but you need to know what the Fire Danger Rating is. Tip 4 - Windjana Gorge's freshwater crocodiles If you are driving the Gibb River Road, Windjana Gorge is an obvious first/last stop for your trip. Windjana Gorge is a 3.5 km gorge. The cliffs on both sides of the gorge are 30 to 100 metres high. Simply Beautiful, you will see many freshwater crocodiles. Tip 5 - Take a bath in the 'Bell Gorge' Bell Gorge is part of the King Leopold Ranges Conservation Reserves. The waterfall is cascading down the perfectly U-shaped cliffs, into a deep pool perfect for swimming, with large flat rocks along the side, perfect to sit down, sun bathe, have a beer... The campground is 10 Km from the gorge., called Silent Grove. Tip 6 - 'Charnley River Station' Charnley River Station is a working cattle station on the Gibb. The campground is very spacious and has good facilities. It takes some driving and walking to get to the gorges and swimming holes, but it's well worth the effort. We liked Dillie Gorge and the Donkey Pools. Tip 7 - Don't Forget at least one spare tire The Gibb River Road is notorious for it's endless corrugations and sharp rocks, and flat tyres are a common problem. If possible, it's a good idea to take two spare tyres with you. If you need help along your trip, tyre repairs/mechanical services are available at the following points: Over the Range, Charnley River Station, Mt Barnett Roadhouse, Home Valley Station, El Questro and Drysdale Station. Tip 8 - 'Over the Range' THE mechanic - is worth to visit! 'Over the Range' - tyre and mechanical repairs can be helpful if you have a problem with your car. But it's worth to visit - even without any problem. Tip 9 - 'Galvans Gorge' Perfect for a short refreshing bath The gorge is a short walk from the carpark and it's well worth checking out for a refreshing swim. look up to the top of the waterfall and you will see a big boab tree, which is pretty unique. There is also a rope swing from one of the overhanging snappy gum trees. The nearest camping is at Manning Gorge. Tip 10 - 'Manning Gorge' a must on the Gibb The campground is 8 km from the Mount Barnett Roadhouse and is the starting point for the walk to the gorge. The walk to the gorge is great, about 3 km long and hot. At the beginning you have to cross the Manning River by swimming or using the little boat. The gorge is huge and amazing. It has several pools to swim and jump into. Tip 11 - 'Ellenbrae Station' best scones in WA A little known bushcamp with lots of character and Kimberley pioneer flair. Ellenbrae does not have any spectacular gorges, so it's usually nice and quite here. At the homestead you get the best scones in WA. www.ellenbraestation.com.au/ Tip 12 - 'Pentecost River' you HAVE to cross & you will like it The Pentecost River is a major river crossing. The river can be 60+ metres wide and the water often flows quickly just after the end of the wet season. A scenic area with panoramic views towards the Cockburn Ranges. Be aware of saltwater crocodiles in the area. Tip 13 - 'Zebedee 32°C-Springs' just one of El Questro's gorges El Questro offers a campground at the station township that has all the usual facilities and alternative bush camping sites at the river. This is your last opportunity for camping on the Gibb River Road. From here it's only 30 km until you reach the highway. www.elquestro.com.au/ SUPPORTED BY www.redsandscampers.com.au/ MUSIC Song: NOWË - Horizon (Vlog No Copyright Music) Music provided by Vlog No Copyright Music.
