We have just got home from Derby having completed our 6th trip in the Kimberley in our 6.2m Runabout. We left from Derby and travelled as far as red Cone Inlet visiting most places along the way on our 12 days on the water. Happy to report that all rivers/waterfalls this year had plenty of water so hopefully continue to run well into the season. Fuel was available again at Dog Leg Creek for $3.50 per liter. There is now Telstra phone coverage around Koolan Island and while our Optus phone still worked there, Mick on the fuel barge sounded surprised and said that he thought the Optus service had already been turned off. Water is still able to be accessed at Silvergull Creek.
Hope someone finds this info useful.
