Had been warned about Nanutarra Roadhouse but as I was out of gas I had to stop. Nearly fell over when I saw the price, but didn't feel so bad when I saw Diesel.

I guess you didn't even notice the price of their food ?

Yep I remeber the price of the food. $6.50 for a pie. Nearly $16.00 for a Hamburger and that was 2 years ago. Lunch was a tin of tuna and dry bikkies by the river let me tell you. See it's still a rip off joint then.

Cheers. Mick

That one was taken on the 25th June, 06. 2006 was the year they had numerous cyclones along the Pilbara and Kimberley coasts so everything was late in opening, particularly the Kimberley (at least 6 weeks later than normal). Great for us as there was plenty of water going over the Mitchell falls.

Cheers

Mick.

Now here's a lotto ticket purchasing moment. We drove across just before or after you. I remember the same guys walking down to get water and I think a women standing on the same side, on the left ready to take a photo, when we drove threw the river. Could be wrong but I think there were two cars one with a camper pulled up as we drove threw. As you say there was plenty of water and the falls were running everywhere. We took the chopper flight out to the coast and then spent a couple of weeks at Walsh Point. Was a very memorable spot. Caught one of the biggest mud crabs I've ever seen. While we get them pretty large in CQ this one fed me for a few days.

This morning I was talking to a fellow camper who had to stop there last night. They bought tea for himself, partner and a little child - $100!. This was on top of fuel for his car and hers - $200 and I can't remember what they were going to charge to stay there but they refused and drove through to Tom Price.

We were up at Arkaroola last year on the way through to Innamincka then Tibooburra. It cost $125 for fuel and couple of drinks which wasn't too bad. The next morning I tried to use the Credit Card at Innamincka only to find there was no money left. Luckily we had enough in another account to pay for it.

The next afternoon at White Cliffs the other half checked the receipts and they had added an extra zero to the price when punching it into the EFTPOS machine and I hadn't noticed. $1250 for a tank of juice!

Took us 3 days to get the money back as they coulnd't credit that much back to us and had to do a bank transfer.

So - pays to check those receipts before you sign 'em.

Cheers
Ross
