View over Marella Gorge
We visited Marella Gorge on our way home in August after our brilliant trip to the Kimberley. It was difficult to find the entrance to it in the fading light at sunset, but we managed it and travelled over the flat rocks and had our camp set up as darkness fell!
We want to let you know that it is under new management now B, and visitors have to contact Flora Valley Station for permission to stay at Marella Gorge, not Nicholson Station any more.
Important news also is that the new management are rumoured to be closing Marella Gorge early next year (2010) so you might want to look into that and update your wonderful guide book, B.
Note from Birgit:
Both the wonderful guide book ;) and the page about the Duncan Road (which covers Marella Gorge) are up to date!
