Goodbye to our safari tent.
We have had a great couple of days at the Purnululu campsite visiting the Bungle Bungles.
Now we are off to Derby via Fitzroy crossing.
We decided not to ride the Gibb River Road.
We accrued plenty of corrugation and dust credits on the Cape York Peninsula trip.
Boab trees dot the landscape.
... along the main street in Derby.
This Boab was used as a prison.
I find the smoke and fires unnerving.
In the northern regions of Australia fires are commonplace at this time of the year during the dry season.
When the rains come new feed will grow for stock.
We ride around it. I try not to notice that there are no railings in some places.
The piles are very tall.
The tides can reach up to 11.8m here - the second biggest tides in the world. The biggest are at the Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia (15m).
Our home for the night at the Boab Inn.
