Gibb River rambling

Caravan World — 30 January 2009

“The ubiquitous patina of red dust on everything will remain until I get back on a plane in Broome a week from now,” – Carlisle Rogers, Camper Trailer Australia.

Land Rover celebrated its 60th birthday in 2008.

To commemorate the fact, Camper Trailer Australia journalist Carlisle Rogers set out with the company to complete a coast-to-coast journey through the heart of Australia with the entire model range. The contingent took in country from Birdsville through the Simpson Desert to Broome, via the Gibb River Road.



“There are many gorges along the Kimberley, some of them on private property like Emma Gorge, so don’t pass up the opportunity to explore some of these places unencumbered by the echo of fellow tourists,” says Carlisle.
