We’re getting closer and closer to our major destination Broome! Welcome back to Part 10 of Caravanning Australia’s Big Lap. We have now entered Western Australia after an adventurous trip through the Northern Territory. If you missed out, read through Part 9 first and then meet us back here – you won’t want to miss out on what we have in store!
After leaving the phenomenal natural wonder that is Halls Creek, your trip to Fitzroy Crossing is an exciting one. The Fitzroy Crossing sits 110 metres above sea level, with an abundance of exciting places to visit from Bells Gorge, Geikie Gorge National Park and the Windjana Gorge National Park to Tunnel Creek; as well as the original Fitzroy Crossing. Bushwalkers will enjoy walking trails in Bells Gorge, Geikie Gorge and Windjana Gorge – the spectacular views are hard to beat.
Once you have explored all you can at Fitzroy Crossing, the end is nearly in sight. Broome is located right on the Indian Ocean, in the superb Kimberley Region. Considered a favourite for tourists who flock to Western Australia, Broome is home to a plethora of sights to see. Visit Cable Beach and hitch a ride on one of the oldest modes of transportation – a camel!
These camel tours are an amazing experience, especially when the sun is setting along the Indian Ocean. Cable Beach is a stunning stretch of 22 kilometres of pearly white sand. You may also visit the Dampier Peninsula, Gantheaume Point or treat yourself to a Kimberley cruise. The cruise allows you to see towering red cliffs, waterfalls, Indigenous rock art, interesting geology and exotic wildlife.
