  • Off to the Kimberleys

    I must apologise for not being very active lately, but I have been preparing for an 8 week trip to the Kimberleys. I've been busy beefing up the suspension og the fourby and rewiring the camper as the standard wiring was very light and I did not want to risk a meltdown while we were in some remote location.
    I will try and post a daily photo, depending on internet connection. It will probably on ly be taken with an Ipad, but there will be plenty of DSLR images when I get back.

    Here's the itinerary:

    Haligan Bay
    Mount Dare
    Chambers Pillar
    Boggy Hole
    Palm Valley
    Alice Springs
    Red Bank Gorge
    Sandy Blight Junction
    Carawine Gorge
    Marble Bar
    80 Mile Beach
    Windjana Gorge
    Mt. Hart Homestead
    Bell Gorge
    Manning gorge
    Drysdale River Station
    Mitchell Plateau
    Tennant Creek
    Alice Springs
    Coober Pedy
    Port Pirie

    All packed up, hooked up and ready to go.

    Looks like quite a good trek John, should be plenty of photo opportunities along the way.
    I hope it all goes to plan for you.
    Looking forward to seeing your progress pics, iPad is fine.
    Cheers, Brad.

      I'm not normally a jealous person, but in this case ............... What a fantastic trip, so keep those photos coming. And if you need someone to let the tyres down, and pump them up again, or fetch the water, or boil the billy, or whatever, don't hesitate to ring.. Have a safe trip.

      Cheers, Gary

    Just saw a post that you had called in at Ironwood's - looking at your map it seems you may have turned right instead of left at Alice Springs.
    I'm still available to boil your billy, or even navigate! Hope the trip is going well - looking forward to lots of photos.

    Cheers, Gary

      You are correct Gary, John did take a right turn and is now heading down the Qld coast. I will leave him to tell the story when he gets back on the forum.

      G'day John, hope the trip is going well. If you travel down the coast through Sydney we would be pleased to catch up with you. When not home in the big smoke we can be found two hours south and have plenty of room for visitors or campers to stay, at Lake Wollumboola, near Nowra.

      Cheers, Gary
