Back from the Kimberley

September 5th, 2011

I’m back… Back from the Kimberley, and back in Blog land.  I’ve actually been back in Fremantle for a month now, but i’ve been so busy catching up with everything that had been put on hold, that time to write on the Blog never materialised… also, i am a great procrastinator, possibly one of the best, and anything to do with writing is what i’m best at procrastinating about Read the rest of this entry »

Photography Tour 2011

Back in lovely Broome after a long drive of 1000km from Kununurra after the completeion of the 7day photographic tour of the Bungle Bungles I have just completed.  Time now to take stock, do the washing, download some pictures and write a blog entry or two.  Firstly a quick recap of the 7 day photographic tour of the Kimberley which concluded in Kununurra a little over a week ago.

Initially we intended to go across the Gibb River Rd from Broome to Kununurra on this 7 day photo tour, camping in many of the scenic locations along the way to photograph and swim in tropical waterholes.  That was plan A.  But, the record biggest ever wet, which has filled all the waterholes to overflowing, has also destroyed all the dirt roads making many of them still impassable.  Even Windjana Gorge, one of the most popular scenic spots in the west Kimberley, was inaccessible and shut until only a few days ago.

Fortunately we had a plan B (and indeed even a plan C), and as it turned out plan B proved to be an amazing experience that was unique and vastly differant to what most people would ever experience in the Kimberley, one i’m sure we will all remember.

Since the Gibb River Rd was not an option we headed South East out of Broome and straight to Jarlmadangah Aboriginal community.  Where TJ and Sarnold from the community acted as our guides for the time spent there.   They showed us many beautiful locations on their country and shared some of the stories and cultural significance with us all teaching us some of the importance that country has for Aboriginal people, perhaps planting the seed for better understanding between us. (Pictures from the previous blog entry are from Jarlmadangah)

After  2 nights at Jarlmadangah we took off on the main road and drove all the way round to the other end of the Gibb River Rd, which was open for a part of the way, to El Questro Station, one of my all time favourite locations in the Kimberley.  We remained camped at El Questro for  3 days, and i think we could really have stayed longer.  El Questro has an enormous number of beautiful locations and is a photographers paradise.
