After leaving Home Valley it was back onto the Gibb with our next stop Drysdale River Homestead. However, we had been told to make sure we take a small detour to sample the scones with jam and cream on offer at Ellenbrea. After doing some miles on the dusty and bumpy road we started seeing the signs and could not resist. A small 5km detour took us to paradise.
Yummy just like Nanna used to make.
Ellebrea Station is quite unique. A lot of creative energy has gone into the buildings made from what looks like whatever was at hand. The outdoor bathroom is quirky to say the least.
The gardens are a lovely green oasis in which to enjoy your scones while being entertained by the many finches enjoying the bird feeders.
You can camp here or stop for morning or afternoon tea. Don’t miss it.
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
