A few favourite campsites (Kimberley road trip - part 1)

We've always loved camping. Over the years we've moved from a teeny tiny two person tent to a more substantial camping set-up. Our two month road trip from Melbourne to the Kimberley gave us a chance to try it all out in some pretty special locations. Here's a few of our favourite sites (in no particular order)

The 'RAAF Boab Quarry' near Fitzroy Crossing - yep that's our tent and car behind the rocks on the left of the photo. Thanks to this guidebook for the tip about this site - we had the whole place to ourselves for the first night.

Somewhere off the side of the Tanami Highway - the flies were insane here, which is the reason Remy looks like he's in a cage.

Same campsite as above, just at night. Shame it was cloudy because the stars would have been incredible out there.

On the Buntine highway just over the border from Western Australia to Northern Territory. That's us tucked in near the shelter on the right. We didn't see another person or car the whole stay.

This last photo's not the most spectacular but it shows the basics of our set up.  A pop up Oz tent, an awning and lots of things in the back of the Cruiser.  All relatively easy to set up and pack up - even with a baby in one arm.
