Female and single? Go for it! From Shark Bay to Kununurra and everywhere in between...

(Shark Bay, WA)
Caveman at Tunnel Creek
We (my 8yo son and I) have just arrived home from 6 weeks on the road; starting from Shark Bay (WA) through Karijini NP, up to Kununurra via the Gibb River Rd, back to Broome via the highway, then out to Cape Leveque and back home.
What a WONDERFUL adventure we had!!
Living it up at Bell Gorge
We travelled in a standard Prado 05 model, no roof racks, no added extras, standard tyres and had NO dramas at all - no shredded tyres, no nothing!!!
Camping at Windjana
Yes, the GRR was shockingly corrugated, and, yes, I honestly visualised the car falling apart panel by panel as we drove along, but it didn't!
Deep River Crossing
We took it easy, travelling at about 50 -60kms most of the way, had the tyres down to about 26 (standard 17" tyres) and just enjoyed the scenery.
At the end off the GRR I nearly cried, I was just so proud of myself - a single female with an 8yo boy had sucessfully driven the GRR and enjoyed every single minute!!! (except maybe the endless corrugations.....)
Galvans GorgeSo to any female who is not sure whether they can do it or not, GO FOR IT!!!!!!!!
