INSPIRATIONS FROM THE BLOG
The Kimberley isn't known as Australia's last frontier for nothing. The landscape tempts you with its otherworldly beauty, but there are many safety considerations when planning to get up close and personal.
The rock making up the cliffs is old, so old, it predates life on earth. Let that sink in for a moment.
“I can’t see any fossils in any these rocks,” I ask my guide Carly.
“These rocks were formed before there was anything to fossilise,” she replies plainly.
A cruise is not the only way to discover the Kimberley.
