Today we set off down the Gibb River Road after 5 fantastic days around Wyndham. We might never have come here if we had not heard Stephen Pigram singing “Crocodile River” at the Port Fairy Folk Festival. While the food at the five rivers club that is mentioned in the song was nothing to rave about, the town has a lovely frontier feel about it and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. Thanks Steve for providing the inspiration.
Before setting off we went for a final finch viewing behind the Wyndham caravan park where we heard they can be seen in large numbers. We were not disappointed.
For the next 4 to 5 weeks we will be exploring the heart of Kimberley in an area where there is almost no mobile phone coverage, so there won’t be many updates. Optus has satellite fed small cells at a couple of remote communities and fortunately we brought an Optus prepaid dongle with us, so if we can get it to work we might post an update. However we have found that these small cells sometimes don’t really work (I think they become overloaded very easily) so no promises. S
