The Crocs 2009 - Gibb River Road

by Sharan

We drove the Gibb River Road in August 2009 in a hired 4wd which we hired in Broome. We are country people used to dirt roads and we were suprised at the condition of the Gibb River Road. We had expected the conditions to be a lot worse than what they where.

We were a travelling party of four from NSW and had a great time. Time was limited 14 days in all but we experienced lots.

Bungle Bungle was fantastic, we did all the walks than took a helicopter flight as well breathtaking is all I can say. Our stay at Home Vally was great, would recomend to all to stay, food and facilities as good as any.

The flight to Horizontal Falls and lunch on cruiser was enjoyed by us all.

Charnley River Station was a highlight of our trip and my husband is still talking about it and would love to go back and just stay on the station for an extended amount of time. Cheryl was a great host and we loved canoeing in Dillie Gorge.

We thank you for all your tips which helped greatly with the planning of our trip. We were very please to say we experienced no trouble at all not even a flat tyre.
