The trip from the airstrip was a bit bumpy, but then you can't have an airstrip next to a luxury bush camp that has fantastic views out across Faraway Bay. Anyway, Kevin's commentary on the drive was entertaining and informative.
At Faraway Bay, you are far way. No roads to this spot, everything comes in the light aircraft. My wife was sitting next to cartons of food and beer! Plus a new water pump for the camp.
The food was fantastic. The menu varied and there was plenty of it.
The flight into the camp is fantastic, with aerial views of King George Falls and other well known spots, with a commentary from the pilot.
The sightseeing boat trips to neighbouring bays and to secret safe swimming holes, provided opportunities to swim in gin clear pools!
Fishing in mangrove creeks and out along the cliffs provided even first time fishers the thrill of catching dinner.
Aboriginal rock art is prolific, with locations still being found.
My wife and I loved the whole experience. Thanks so much to Kevin, Gemma and Sophie for the thoughtful care you provided.
