Barn Hill Station is located 128km south of Broome, and is 9km off the Great Northern Highway. The camping area is on the cliff top overlooking the Indian Ocean. It seems a lot of people come here and prop for 2-3 months each year to escape the colder weather down south and it was pretty full when we joined the que to book in. The regulars even had vegies growing in pots!! They have a bowling green (although dad would say it needs a bit of work) they also bake bread and its really good even though it cost $6 a loaf, they also do a pretty good Vanilla slice. You can have a shower or sit on the loo and watch the stars at night, and don't worry about the gaps in the doors too much. The coastline here is just fantastic the contrasting red and white cliffs and some amazing rock formations. It was wonderful sitting on the cliff top watching the whales as the sun sets.
Bob and Bette are getting that work life thing in balance and taking off for 2 or 3 months to explore our own backyard! Hope you enjoy travelling along with us. This trip will take us up the centre and across to the west, via Gibb River Road. We like to take the road least travelled so stay tuned you never know where we will end up. ... full info
