This was day 6 of our catamaran cruise from Darwin to Kalumburu. This photo captures the awesomeness of the waterfall and the cliff our boat was about to pull alongside in the Kimberley.
I remember the boat getting extremely close to the cliffs. We stayed there underneath the water for maybe 30 minutes, it was so unexpected. The sound of the waterfall hitting the river was very powerful. There was a lot of energy in that moment.
The amazing raw beauty of the cliffs and the stunning landscape really took me aback, it was nature at its finest. It was one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had and would return tomorrow if I could.
On my last night in Broome I ventured out to photograph the stars with my best friend. I can never get used to the novelty of seeing a blanket of stars above me, making me feel both infinitely small and yet part of something large and powerful.
This was my first visit to Cable Beach, and I couldn’t wait to do the infamous camel ride at sunset. I look back at my time in Broome and Cable Beach with a smile and see it as the highlight of my journey around Australia.
Time for some myth-busting: the assumption that the Western Australian winter involves a momentary dip in temperature and a couple of extra clouds is just plain wrong! With two climates to choose from, Western Australia does winter cool and crisp or warm and wonderful.
Broome's billion star nights, gateway to the Kimberley wilderness and famous giant tides, put reconnecting with nature high on the agenda of locals and visitors alike. Marvel at the natural diversity as you fly over curiously flat waterfalls, witness a breathtaking mudflat moon-dance, and watch a rare dolphin species play in a turquoise bay.
