The Kimberley In Australia

October 3, 2013

When asked what my favourite part of Australia is that I’ve seen so far, I don’t hesitate in saying The Kimberley in the far North West of Australia. The first settlers in this region arrived around 41,000 years ago, which is hard to comprehend. Seeing this vast country, its beauty and isolation, and the sense of being with the past, especially when we saw many  caves with indigenous rock art that is thousands of years old, on remote islands, was almost overwhelming. Serene, calm, spiritual, mystical,and historical are some words that come to mind. I always had a feeling that someone was watching me. One of the crew would always pay respect to the land as we left a spot. I came away with an ever greater love of my country.

Unfortunately we couldn’t swim in the water, but managed to dip on the very edge, with someone always on the watch out for crocodiles.
