      Absolutely loved the Bungle Bungles and did a helicopter flight over them.

      A bit of advice for anyone touring the Kimberlys, we did the cruise from Broom to Darwin and were on the whole very dissapointed as there was a neap tide so hardly any water flowing over the Horizontal falls, an absolute anti climax! So check what the tides will be before you book. Scenery is stunning though, and enjoyed seeing the Aboriginal rock art.

      Loved the Katherine Gorge, really recommend the evening dinner cruise.o

      been lucky to have the time to travel around Australia, other highlights were Lightening Ridge, and flown over Lake Ayr sadly not much water and stayed in Birdsville.

      Were en route from Birdsville to (sorry can't remember) on a dirt road, came across a motor cyclist lying in the middle of the road wrapped in a silver blanket, we were travelling in a small group in a mini bus. Luckily a retired Dr. With us. He had broken several bones.
      Radiod the Flying Dr. then drove 1 1/2 hours to the nearest homestead, with him on board.
      Very humbling to see the amazing Flying Dr. aircraft land, make him comfortable, the men helped lift the stretcher on board and off it flew.
      Bought home what a wonderful job they do.

      Until you travel around this amazing country it is almost impossible to take the size on board and the distances between places.

      If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

      A few distances in the Kimberlies, Kununurra to Kalumburu

      The second table shows Kimberly driving distances via the famous Gibb River Road.
      Keep in mind that the Gibb River Road is unsealed. Certain distances are shorter, but it will take you a lot longer to get there! The idea behind driving the Gibb River Road is not to get somewhere fast, but to enjoy a spectacular drive through one of the world's most beautiful and remote corners.
      Kununurra El Questro Kalumburu Mount Barnett Windjana Gorge Derby
      Kununurra 86 560 407 608 712
      El Qestro 86 474 321 522 626
      Kalumburu 560 474 373 574 678
      Mount Barnett 407 321 373 201 305
      Windjana Gorge 608 522 574 201 144
      Derby 712 626 678 305 144

      Weirdest thing I saw was "Churchills Head" an oddly shaped rock on the old Stuart Highway in the NT.
