AUSTRALIA 2013 #68

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Mount Elizabeth Station, located off the eastern half of the Gibb River Road. It about 60 miles from Charnley River Station (see previous up-loads). It is a working Kimberley cattle station offering accommodation to tourists and a campground.

Mr Frank Lacey took up this lease in 1945 and the Lacey family has run the property since.

The reason to visit Mt. Elizabeth Station are: the beautiful gorges as well as bush walking.

The weather, in May 2013, deteriorated quickly, rain created some problems and we were not able to visit all the places originally planned. The Gibb River Road was being closed but luckily and were able to reach Kununurra without getting get stuck in the middle of nowhere.

The photos in this series were taken while doing the “Homestead Walk”,
a marked loop trail going through some lovely woodland and crossing 3 small creeks.
