Galvans Gorge & Adcock Gorge

We have been to some very remote places on this trip, and often the GPS doesn’t even know where we are.

Later in the afternoon, we also visited Adcock gorge, but didn't swim there as the water was in shadow and quite cold.

There are so many gorgeous gorges on the Gibb River Road, and we are doing our best to visit most of them.

    • Galvans Gorge is just off the Gibb River Road, about 14 km south of Mt Barnett Roadhouse. Amazing spot.

    • The ‘Middle of nowhere’ photos were taken on the way in to Adcock Gorge, which is about 5km off the Gibb River Road along a rocky track.
