In our ‘Are we there yet’ exhibition, little Grace remembers many exciting stories about her family trip around Australia. After Grace and her family were on the road a while, they drove through the outback and their car got bogged in the deep sand on the Tanami Track.
A football team helped push us out, and Billy said, ‘Are we there yet?’
Former staff library staff member Paul had a similar experience when he did a road trip in the Kimberley region many years ago. Here are some snapshots of his adventure:
The Kimberley’s Gibb River Road, 700 km of corrugated track. Three blown out tyres, $500 for a steering system rebuild – money well spent!
Boldly go where no two-wheel drive should go…
The Kimberley – a remote peaceful paradise!
We always went to bed around 9.00pm as there wasn’t much to do after sundown. I remember a particular night when we camped close to a remote settlement. I woke up around midnight to the distant sound of singing and didgeridoos. Magic!
