Kununurra and Gibb River Road, WA

Kununurra is our last regional town before leaving WA for the Northern Territory, so we had big plans whilst here to catch up on shopping, tax, dentist, etc. Only our littlest man spiked a fever and that pretty much changed our plans. Mumma took him up to the hospital and after a quick check (nothing serious - virus brewing) we headed to the local shops to buy fans to try to cool our little man down.

The weather is really changing now, we are starting to get some afternoon rain and thunderstorms.... The wet season build up is upon us...

Storm clouds to go with the rainbow...

We travelled only a short way along Gibb River Road and hiked into Emma Gorge. It was another scorching hot day, so hard on the boys, but the swim at the end was so refreshing, just what we needed.

Emma gorge pool .... ahhhhhhh

Leo spotted this snake as we were walking along Emma Gorge - we believe its a yellow python

We then went into El Questro Station and visited Zeberdee Springs. The thermal pools is 28-36 degrees all year round, natural rock and tree setting, was just beautiful.

We had a look at a few local art galleries; Zebra rock Art Gallery, Red Rock Art Gallery.... oooohhhh how I would love to make a purchase there.... we bought a lottery ticket instead at the local supermarket!
