2017 Gulf Road Trip - Gregory Downs

From Julia Creek we headed into Gulf country. A lunch of hot chips at the Burke and Wills roadhouse went down a treat with everyone.

At Gregory Downs we checked out the local store - it was very tiny. They didn't have any bread - their delivery was a week late.

We drove over the bridge and turned left to the camp area. This was a rocky area along the Gregory River. We asked a guy who looked like he'd been there a while on the best place to camp was and he pointed in the direction of an awesome spot where would almost step into the river from the van.

We spent 2 nights here exploring the river and rafting down the river on our mats. The water was very refreshing however we were a little more cautious after the kids pulled a dead croc out of the water just upstream from where we were swimming.

Colin went fishing down stream and caught a decent size cat fish - at this point in time we were unaware of their potential danger. Oppps.

This is definitely a place we would stay again and a highlight of the trip so far.
