Australia Add comments

The Wave is something that will ring a bell for anyone who has ever driven in the Australian countryside.  If you find yourself driving in Australia a few kilometers outside any country town or 50-100 kilometers from one of the capital cities, you’ll see oncoming drivers (and sometimes passengers) signal some kind of greeting as […]

Derby and Fitzroy Crossing

Australia, Western Australia Add comments

Fitzroy Crossing was our first stop on the bitumen after completing our almost three week trek across the Gibb River Road.  Fitzroy is pretty much an Aboriginal community along the Great Northern Highway, a stop for people driving the stretch between Kununurra and Broome.  Fitzroy Crossing earns its name from being located alongside the Fitzroy […]
