After cape range national park we headed to Broome, this took around 3 days of driving at a steady pace so when we arrived we just wanted to relax for a few days, so that is what we did. On our first day we headed to cable beach. This is in the top 5 beaches in the world and when we got there we could see why. It is just 22 kilometres of white sand and really blue sea. Just what we wanted. We spent the day swimming, reading and generally chilling out and feeling as though we were on our holidays again.
That night we went to see a thing called 'staircase to the moon', its a phenomenomn where the moon is rising, it looks really orange and the refelction on the sea bed when the tide is out is supposed to look like stairs to the moon. We didn't really believe it would be that good but went along anyway. When the moon started coming up, it was so bright it was unbelievable and once it had risen it did actually look like stairs to the moon, unfortunately the camera wasn't that great at picking it up but it was good to see. There was also a market on at the same time, so we had a wonder looking at the digeridoos and all the pearls and then had something to eat. It was a different, but very good night!
The next day before we went to the beach we decided to go to Gantheaume point where dinasour footprints could be seen. We saw some, but the tise wasn't far enough out for us to see them all. Again the rock formations were fascinating and the colour was so bright that we spent a while climbing the rocks and looking at the views of cable beach. We then went back to cable beach for a bit more sunbathing and swimming.
Our next stop was a place called Fitzroy crossing to do a walk arounf Geikie Gorge. The walk was fairly short again, and the views of the gorge were good, but so far nothing beats Kalbarri for both the rock formations and the colours. The next morning we headed to Kununarra to go to another national park, again it was different rock formations that look a bit like the bungle bungles that is a famous site in Australia, unfortunately we couldn't get to teh bungle bungles as it is by 4 wheel drive only so we had to make do with the smaller version!
Once we had been there we had to clear out our van of all fruit and veg to cross the border into Northern Territory as there is a quaratine on.
Total miles so far 3340.
