Welcome to part one of our photo posts, highlighting the amazing time we had over 5 weeks in the Kimberley. If you want to see the next post, you can find it here – Off to Cape Leveque.
At 3AM on May 2, 2015, we got into our fully loaded 80 series Land Cruiser and headed north. The start of our holiday was Broome, but we had planned to stop at Newman for a night, before doing the remaining 11 hours the following day.
Stopped for a quick break
Newman to Port Hedland is a very scenic drive
Certainly a change from driving around Perth
The sun just about to show its face
We passed a number of big road trains on the way up
The mining in Port Hedland was pretty incredible
The GoPro got hit by a giant bug
After two long days of driving, we were pretty happy to set up camp at Cable Beach Caravan Park
Off to Gantheaume Point
A truly remarkable place
Nothing beats the access a 4WD gives you
A nifty boat just around the corner
Broome’s town beach
The bluest water you will ever see
Replacing a leaking axle seal in the car park
Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park
They love the algae
Our tour guide getting really excited
They’ve got some mammoth crocodiles here
A dingo at the crocodile park (in it’s own enclosure of course!)
Cable beach car park
Possibly the best thing about Broome; 4WD access directly onto Cable beach!
Heading down for the sunset with some fish and chips
The camels in Broome
Massive tides means a huge beach to drive on
Loving the way the water sits on the sand
Fishing at 80 mile beach
80 mile beach shell collection
More beautiful sunsets
Our 80 has taken us to some truly special places
From here, we headed up to Cape Leveque, another magical place in the Kimberley. You can see the photos in our next post at Cape Leveque. From there, we hit the Gibb River road, and then Lake Argyle and the Bungle Bungles.
