Hi Birgit, thanks for all the great info in your Kimberley guide. As part of our Kimberley trip we went up to the Mitchell Falls in late May and our Jeep Cherokee went great but without a snorkle we were glad it wasn't any deeper in the King Edward River crossing.

We had a great trip and are planning when we can return in a few years. I put a slideshow onto you tube if anyone would like to see it.

Thanks again
Brad Myers.

Hi Brad and Deborah,
That's pretty game to go through without snorkle... Bet you were glad!

Thanks so much for the link to your slide show. Great photos and you can feel the enthusiasm behind it... I love it! Just got back myself but you make me want to take off again right away :-).

As you see, I have embedded it right into your page. Hope that's ok with you.

Thanks again for writing!

King Edward River Crossing

Hi Birgit,

We got back from our Kimberley trip on the 14/8/09. We camped at KE river and the crossing had pebbles/rocks dumped there to prevent people getting stuck, that was early July 09. The crossing was about 250mm deep.

I loved your slide show. I'm in the process of doing mine now. We went just after you in June 09. What a beautiful place. After seeing yours I think I should cut down on my photos. Well done.

Good luck to you both! Great pics and nice back ground music. One good thing about life no one can ever take away is your memories.

Kimberley Trek, May/June 2017
by: Greg Wilder

Trip of a lifetime. 2.5 weeks Darwin to Broome and return. Weather perfect. Beauty everywhere. Only downside was that Bell and Windjana gorges were off limits as the access roads had been washed out by late season rains. All tourist info centres failed to forewarn us of this. And the knock-on effect was that Mornington became quickly booked out, so we also missed out on Dimond and Sir John gorges. But because the region is blessed with a multitude of other gorges, waterfalls, pools, chasms, the bungles etc, we never ran out of jaw-dropping sights to see. My wife, Tania and I plan to get back and do it all again. SOON.
Anyone considering it but unsure, GO !!
PS: Avoid swimming in Edith Falls and Wangi Falls. LARGE salties caught in both spots in March and April 2017. Just because you will see plenty of mad European tourists swimming there doesn't mean it's safe.
