The legendary Gibb River road in the Kimberley is Western Australia’s most infamous dirt track. The red sands, ubiquitous wildlife, breathtaking lookout points, tricky river crossings and ever changing scenery form the perfect backdrop for some amazing four wheel driving.

Emma Gorge: big, refreshing and crystal clear water.
Right beside the King Leopold Range and close to the turnoff to Windjana Gorge lies the Napier Range, with one of the granite rocks shaped like Queen Victoria’s head! Or anyone’s head if you ask me.
