Driving the Gibb River Road in the Kimberley Western Australia
"Driving on the Gibb River Road is a huge adventure, it is rough and tough, the scenery changes from beautiful to awesome around every bend, walking into the gorges is hot and dusty but sitting under a cascade of refreshing water sure makes up for it.
Boab trees can live for more than a thousand years and are growing every where in the Kimberley. Along the roadside, amongst huge rock outcrops and cliffs, at campgrounds, holiday parks and in the towns. The oldest recognised boab tree is in Derby which is near Broome, many years ago it was used as a prison because its trunk was so huge and hollow."
