Coffee @ Larrawa

 Back on the road early our first stop was at Halls Creek where we parked in town near the pool, Kylie had to do some work so the kids & I went for a walk around town that didn’t take long so we had lunch & looked at where we would stay that night. That night we drove through to Mary Pool camp this was a big camp ground on a dried up river. The next morning we were heading for Fitzroy Crossing so Kylie could do more work, as we drove past the gates of Larrawa Station our phones went off, we had service, so we rang Wendy at Larrawa she said they had internet so looks like were camping on a cattle station. 4km down the dirt road we pulled up at the camp ground & Sam the family dog met us with his big smile not far behind was Wendy who made us feel very welcome. Larrawa has great facilities hot showers & flushing toilets, the cattle & horses roam around the camp ground Larrawa is a non mechanical station so Kevin does everything on horseback. There are several walks that are on the property, plenty of fire wood & bbq’s. For those mod cons there is a camp kitchen, the sunsets from the camp ground where fantastic what a great start to our Kimberly adventure. Kylie caught up on her work, the kids caught up on their school work & I spent valuable time testing my eye lids for holes (none found). The 3rd day we were there we saw a cloud of dust coming down the drive way then around the camp ground when it settled there was that motley crew Ned & Gae, Alan & Donna laughing, now we’re even, Looks like another camp fire & more yarns.Sad good bye the day we left Larrawa Station Wendy & Kevin made us feel like family looks like we have somewhere else to come back to on future trips. Larrawa is in Camps 6- 635 so when you’re in the Kimberly make sure you drop in & say hi from us. Thanks for your Hospitality.
