We arrived at Mt Elizabeth being greeted by a scruffy puppy who goes by the name of Gemma. Gemma loved people throwing her stick but she knew who the suckers were that would actually throw it. It was kids and old farts! So every morning I was awoken in my swag by a stick getting dropped on it. I have never seen so much patients in my life she would just stand and stand and stand there until I would unzip my swag and throw it!
Warrala gorge was a very nice place it was like a beach and a little gorge in one.
We had a look around and a lie down on the sand for a while. Then I thought this would be a good place to have a fish so I walked back to the car and got my fishing rod and made my way down the river casting and casting and casting by this time I thought that every fish was extinct. I got down to where Lisa was sitting and she said she had seen fish jumping down the river more. So I went down where she said had about three casts and I was on… but only for a second he got off ,next cast boom got ya now ya bastard. It was a sooty grunter or locally called a black bream. The lady up at the office said that it was a good size one and could of ate him but I had to let it go cause we werent sure what it was when I caught it and the size limit. And that was Mt Elizabeth!
We all enjoyed Elizabeth Station and it was well worth the ride in on more corrigations. 30kms and it took us 1 hour to get there! The Station owners were so nice. I agree with you Matt and Katrina they reminded me of Macleods Daughters too. We stayed two nights here we went to two gorges on this property. Harry mentioned one already the other one was called Wunnumurra Gorge. It was beautiful! Very rough rocky track into this gorge 10kms and took us 1hour to get there plus about a 2km walk in, but well worth it. We stayed here most of the day! The Station had Lots of different animals walking around I was in my element. We could have fires at night and the birds were everywhere lots of different birds I hadnt seen before. Really recomend seeing this place. if you have time on the Gibb River road.
