Some tourists find cycling along Amsterdam canals difficult. And indeed it is much more difficult than driving on the Gibb River Road (we experienced in September 2017). As Dutchies who only drive a Volkswagen on broad concrete roads, a 4WD is quite something different. Thanks to Birgit, I was able to convince my wife of hiring a 4WD, and I am grateful for doing this.
We spent a week along the Gibb River Road, with Birgit's book of course. And it proved to be the best week of our six weeks holiday down under (although Kings Canyon and Daintree was lovely too). I must say, the last 100 m to Adcock Gorge was 'bumpy' but I managed!
