I am madly trying to get this post out while we have reception here in Kununurra – we have sooooooo much we want to share with you all and after two weeks without any phone or internet reception – we have heaps to say!!! We have just finished a very quick week on the Gibb River Road and are in Kununurra to refuel and restock on food before we spend our final week on the road heading back to Far North Qld. I am sitting in the park ‘watching’ the kids in the playground and Matt is on the phone trying to get a few things organised for our arrival in Mareeba in ten days time. From here – we are just going to drive each day until we decide to stop – lots of long days on the road coming up. We are all feeling a bit sad that we did our last gorge hike at Emma Gorge this morning. The last few weeks on the road have been amazing – so, so, so good! Fingers crossed we get a bit of internet reception over the next few nights so I can pump a few posts out!
But, in the meantime, I thought I would give you a quick update on what we have been doing since I last did a proper blog entry about our time in Katherine Gorge.
From Katherine we headed over the border into new territory for all of us – Western Australia – very exciting! We spent the first two days in Kununurra (yep – we have come full circle as that is where we are today!) getting Peter Prado serviced and new tyres.
Then we headed out to Lake Argyle which was spectacular!
From Lake Argyle we pushed over to Broome (you saw our little video of our time there – so good!).
We then spent a week camping at Middle Lagoon and exploring Cape Leveque which was just so beautiful and relaxing!
We dragged ourselves away from Middle Lagoon and after talking to lots of other families while we were staying there – we decided to do a quick one week trip along the Gibb River Road to commence our journey back to the East Coast. The Gibb River Road was not quite the ‘highway’ everybody said it was – saying it was in very good condition – it was still pretty rough but we have had a great time!
And now it is time to hit the road home. More detailed blog posts on all the fun we have had very soon – fingers crossed for reception tonight!
