The Bungle Bungles in Purnululu National Park is one of the The Kimberley’s most spectacular places. Another world of ancient beehive shaped domes, gorges, towering chasms and hidden creeks, it truly is world heritage place that you should not miss, and once you have been you will want to go back (as i do…).

Im definitely showing signs of improvement, with 2 posts in two weeks! This is another shot from my latest trip to the Kimberley last year. I haven’t been into Geikie Gorge for quite a few years, as its near Fitzroy Crossing just off the main road and if i’m going that way the Gibb River Rd is my preference.

Camping around Fitzroy Crossing is a bit scarce, unless you want to stay in a camp ground in the town, which i don’t, as it’s not really my favourite town… though in saying that, it does appear to have improved in the last 10 years, which was the last time i stopped there.

James Price Point looking North from the Gas precinct… clearly a place of no significance
The Exhibit for James Price Point held up in Broome recently was a huge success, due to the hard work of those involved, Nigel Gaunt, Helen Bailey, Rod Hartvigsen to name just the three i know of… Read the rest of this entry »
The exhibition is up on the wall, the programs are all printed and its only 3pm, i’ve got time to spare… so i thought i’d share what i’ve put on the wall at the beginning of the images. I’m sure i’ll offend somebody, but, some people are just easy to offend. lets see.

The Kimberley – A Photographic Exploration
The Kimberley gets into your blood with the red pindan, it simply becomes a part of you, and you become a small part of it. It is a difficult place to leave and it will always call you back. Read the rest of this entry »
The clock is ticking on the opening for the Kimberley Exhibition and i’m almost there. If you haven’t seen the invite you can check it our here. One of the images to feature big in the exhibit will be this one of Mitchell Falls, Mitchell Plateau National Park from the last trip through the Kimberley.
Spectacular big sky at Mitchell Falls
I spent a total of 3 months travelling through the Kimberley this time, and just after the biggest wet season on record. Many roads were so badly damaged by the immense amount of water that they were shut well into the dry season Read the rest of this entry »
Cathedral Gorge Amphitheatre in the Bungle Bungles
The Kimberley exhibition (see previous post) is in 2 weeks, and i’m madly working on new images, i thought this would be a good opportunity for a preview. I just printed this image of Cathedral Gorge Read the rest of this entry »
Have you been wondering what all the fuss is about in the Kimberley? Where is the Kimberley anyway? Isn’t it just an empty place of no special significance?

If you would like to know the answer to these questions come down to Little Creatures Brewery in Fremantle at 6.30pm on October the 20th Read the rest of this entry »
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 »
The fight for James Price Point continues. The police have now begun arresting the protesters for what they call an illegal action… ie: getting in the way of the woodside bulldozers.
So the protesters are being arrested for illegally stopping Woodside from clearing land they have no approvals to clear… The democratic process in action, seems like Woodsides vote is worth more than mine.
Colin Barnett has told the protesters to move along, because, they have made their point and now its time to let Woodside get on with the job… If the protesters have made their point it seems Colin may have missed it.
Below is an image (courtesy of Wil Thomas) of from the air of what Woodside have achieved with a bulldozer in only one day of clearing. and all this without any developement approvals at all. I wonder if they would let me take a Bulldozer up there and clear a bit of land, Maybe for another gas plant i’m thinking of building…
This is merely exploration…
Mitchell Falls from the chopper
I just dropped into Kununurra for a couple of days of repairs and restocking after about 3 weeks on the Gibb River Rd and the Kulumbaru Rd in the middle of the Kimberley. I’ve got so much new stuff to show that i barely know where to start, and i’ve run out of time now, so i’ll have to just put a couple of favourites and leave the rest til the next internet zone…
The Mitchell Falls opened this year only a day ahead of me on the Gibb, so i was able to get up there after thinking i would have to skip it this year. The road was so badly damaged it took the road crews months to make it passable again after the biggest wet season on record… ever! Read the rest of this entry »
