Durak River crossing – our next camp on the Gibb River Road
One of the most delightful things about travelling along the Gibb River Road is the opportunity to set up camp on the banks of a river, or in one of the many free camping areas. Wiki Camps on the computer is a great tool for finding somewhere to camp when you are not familiar with the area. (Thanks Holly!)
Our second day on the Gibb River Road we visited Home Valley station, where many people choose to stay in the campground.
It was fun to visit and look around, but it was too early in the day for us to stop, so we travelled further on.
A little further along, we took a side track that you would miss if you blinked at the wrong time, and found ourselves at Bindoola Falls. There wasn’t much waterfall happening, but we did find an amazing gorge with clear, cool water.
Peter perched himself near the top of the gorge. The trumpet sounded incredible echoing around the rocks.
Even though we are well into the ‘dry’ season, many of the waterways still have plenty of water and it is easy to collect water to supplement your supplies. Our camp on the second night was on the banks of the Durak River. We are yet to see a crocodile, although we are aware that they may be around.
