Piccaninny Creek in the Bungles
I want to thank you for your guide re assistance for our trip - yet again.
We just returned from three weeks to Broome (from Melbourne) including 16 days to do "the Gibb" anticlockwise. I wish we had another week or two to see more.
Yes - it was AWESOME !!
I did the Kimberley 10 years ago with a close Canadian friend, starting in Darwin.
This time I took the wife and another couple.
They were blown away (surprise, surprise) - being "dry" doesn't matter - the area is still beautiful/stunning and the people everywhere were great.
We went along the bitumen via Fitzroy Crossing/Bungle Bungles/Kununurra (that was new for me), then back along the Gibb.
The traffic was fantastic - very few hold ups, and everyone was considerate (the rat race hadn't arrived yet).
Going to Mitchell Falls we encountered virtually no traffic but coming back two days later on 26th May we passed 30 vehicles going in.
The worst road was going into the Bungle Bungles where the rocks were a little rougher (puncture - fixed at Kununurra) - but pretty good everywhere else - including the Gibb/Kalumburu & Mitchell Falls access road.
The water was trickling in places but the swimming was still good - worth the walks at Bell Gorge...
