We hadn’t headed to the Kimberley to be amongst hundreds of people so we made the call to stay exactly where we were, allowing the riders to get ahead of us instead of battling them for the remainder of the Gibb.We headed back down the driveway to the camping area, where we were met with a completely empty campground with a rather rustic bush style toilet shower arrangement. It’s not often you can get a campsite in these parts to yourself so we were pretty happy with our decision, we were even allowed to use the firewood collected by the station for the donkey heater! We will definitely be back to Ellenbrae.
The next morning after having some more scones for breakfast we headed off to Home Valley, the first of the big Stations pushing their tourism hard. I had begun to notice at this end of the Gibb a number of people having tyre problems, we even passed one unlucky fellow who had now used both his spares. Im not sure if it is luck or the fact that we had invested in high quality tyres in the Mickey Thompson MTZ P3’s but we did not and still to this date as I write this have not had a single puncture, gotta be happy with that.
