The Gibb River Road in the Kimberley is an epic outback roadtrip but is the The Munja Track the new, less touristy Gibb? – number 53 on Australian Traveller’s ‘100 amazing places you haven’t been to yet‘. Nominated by: Lee Atkinson, travel journalist.

The Kimberley’s Gibb River Road is well and truly on the mainstream tourist trail these days, but if you want to leave the crowds behind and are up for a heart-pumping 4WD challenge, “head to Mount Elizabeth Station about halfway along the Gibb,” instructs Lee Atkinson.

“Mount Elizabeth offers access to the Munja Track, an epic 224-kilometre journey with mind-blowing scenery, some fantastic swimming holes and some of the best Aboriginal art galleries I’ve ever seen.”

You’ll need to pay $100 to get a gate key because you’re entering private property, but it’s worth it, she says.

Make sure you check out Wren Gorge and Bachsten Falls – the two spots are, according to some, the Kimberley’s most stunning… and not just because you’re virtually guaranteed to be the only people there.
