On our "once in a lifetime" trip to the Kimberley in May this year,we stumbled across the Drysdale River Station.after a long and bumpy day on the GRR .
Met by Oscar,a happy jovial gent ,we ventured into the "the tin shed" paid our dues and proceeded to an unpowered campsite.
The area was clean and the amenities block was a delight - you can image the bride's joy when she saw the line-up of washing machines!!!
Late afternoon we ventured across to the bar ,made a phone call from the Refrigerator and enjoyed jovial chatter with some of the Staff and locals before sitting down and tackling the Kimberley Beef Burger.
Just sensational !!!
Location is a great launching pad for the tough drive to the Mitchell Falls.
Before I left, I had the pleasure in buying the last T shirt in the place which I still proudly wear around Perth.
Dont miss Drysdale River Station !
