Travelling through Kimberley with young children
View over Manning Gorge
We were looking at travelling through the Kimberley in July or August. It'd be myself, my wife and our two kids; a 2 and 1/2 year old, and a 10 month old infant.
I'm comfortable doing the trip, if I know there'll still be water in the majority of the waterholes... somewhere to cool off. We've travelled in desert regions before, while my wife was 7 months pregnant and our eldest was only 17 months.
I know conditions vary from year to year but generally, is there much water left at that time of year?
Has anyone had experience travelling with children that young through the region?
We're generally pretty well prepared on these trips i.e. just purchased Kimberley Destinations, but please tell me if you think we're biting off too much.
