We started our trip on the GRR with a stop at an aboriginal art gallery. We had a great time but decided the art works were outside our budget.
Our first night was at Silent Grove. We then went to Mornington Wilderness Santuary which was a real highlight. It's an old cattle station that has been turned into a wildlife santuary. We spent time at some lovely swminning holes and did a canoe trip up Dimond Gorge.
We moved onto Manning Gorge near Mt Barnett. It was very hot and we spent lots of time swimming. We did the walk at the gorge which turned out to be one of the toughest of the trip. It was very hot and the boys weren't walking as well as usual. I was very glad when we got to the end.
We decided against going to Mitchell falls - we heard it wasn't running much and the road was very rough. We found the Gibb River road itself to be fine - corragate in places but not the worst road of our trip.
We end our time on the Gibb at El Questro. Again lots of time swimming. We visit Zebedee springs and attempt the El Questro gorge walk but it was a bit too hard. We did a boat trip whihc was very entertaining. We drive up 2 very steep look outs and enjoy the view. On the last day P does the Emma Gorge walk on his owns while everyone else relaxs at camp
