My best holiday to date
if one has to rate
was sailing the Kimberley coast
and one has to boast
An exciting relaxing trip,
just fish, eat & Kip,
5star food was grand,
so to the Kimberley Coastland
its waterfalls Horizontal. Regent Mitchell I did see
& learn about the Buccaneer Islands history,
back to Broome A relaxed revived new me,
In time to experience Stairway to the Moon,
the Camel train, outdoor movies and to soon
away home to tell my story
and show pictures of all the glory
that I saw and I would love to visit WA once more.
I hear the Ningaloo Reef is just as Magnificent I’m sure
so here hoping that my trip will be free
for that I will have to wait and see
so free or pay
I will be back to visit WA
I went on a Kimberley Wilderness Adventure Tour from Kunnurra to the Bungle Bungles in a 4WD with Rex, an aborigine guide. The other 8 American tourists were flying into the camp. We passed the colourful pindang soil, the sandstone massif, boab trees and termite hills. He introduced me into alternative medicine, his history, culture and survival techniques. We stopped for petrol at Turkey Creek Roadhouse; his relatives gave me hugs.
The Walardi Camp had solar power,for lighting and we cooked over the open fire; then watched the red sunset. We walked along Piccaninny Creek, saw the Liviston palms and rock paintings. The Echnida Chasm was breathtaking. Cathedral Gorge and the huge billabong unforgettable because of the music. Rex entranced us with his stories of dreamtime, then played the didgeridoo. The music resonated around the rocks. There was an appause, then a welsh choir, responded with their National Anthem. ” Your turn” and Rex obliged again. A unique memorable occasion.
I cruised up the coast in February on the Century, we called into Broome where I had a marvelous experience riding a camel on Cable Beach-thoroughly enjoyed it.. What I would really love to do in your area is explore the Margaret River region-that sounds really lovely.
We did a cruise around Australia 3 years ago and loved the Western Side Met up with friends in Perth who took us to a awesome park In Broome saw great things also We both would love to return to experience more of your lovely state
A wonderful trip to Broome and seeing the spectactular sunset from the beach at Cable Bay. Then an fantastic five day safari tour into the Kimberley’s, sleeping under the stars in swags, seeing the inspiring gorges and being up and close to a crocodile (not a salty!)
We visited Broome and the Kimberley three years ago and loved the vast outback, the fiery sunsets, the ruggedness of the drive to the extraordinary Bungle Bungles in the Purnululu National Park, the red earth that permeated though everything and was everywhere, the lizards that scuttled nearby, the fragile wildflowers, the elusive dingo, the staircase to the moon that captivates, ancient dinosaur footprints and older barrier reefs, dry river beds, dodging cattle and kangaroos, swimming in the Indian Ocean, following behind road trains, being dwafted by meteor craters, majestic boab trees, small towns, friendly locals, and flocks of wild budgerigars.
And yet we’ve only seen such a small part of the extraordinary and wonderful Western Australia!
My most amazing experience in WA was watching staircase to the moon at Broome.Brilliant.
