Two roads

Tuesday 30 July

It was a relatively early start from last night’s camp.  The cloud was low in the valley making a very pretty start to what was a dry, dusty and rough day on the road – up the Gibb River Road and then north on the Kulumburu Road. The Durack River provided a rest stop from the corrugations.

Ellen Brae Station is a grassy and cool spot where we had a sandwich lunch and enjoyed the garden and the double-barred finches.

We pushed on to Drysdale Station. I will remember this evening for the excellent shower facilities, the sunset and the 5 Seeds Cider on ice in the Station bar after we set up camp. Something about not having to cook dinner and enjoying a fine country buffet also helped shift the mood upwards.
