I have reached the end of the Savannah Way and the coast! Broome, I could have easily stayed here a long time. What’s not to like about a town that has a beach 22km long? Although I did find out one thing when I went for a run one morning……. the nudist part of the … More Horizontal in Broome
I began the day in Fitzroy Crossing. Here’s a picture of the Fitzroy river, one of Australia’s largest, but this is it in the dry season. From the dry river bed I went to Derby, home of the Australia’s highest tides. An average of 10m. It’s hard to fully appreciate or even fathom the impact water … More Water Water………..
So I went along to see the Bungle Bungles or Purnululu National Park. Purnululu is the name given to the sandstone area of the Bungle Bungle Range by the Kija Aboriginal people. The name means sandstone. It was easily one of the most spectacular and memorable places on the trip so far. In this case the road was too … More Bungled at the Bungles

For the Irish readers, generally freshies aren’t interested in humans, they leave that action up up to their saltwater cousins so I was safe as … More I got my eye on you!
It’s official I have checked in at the Heartbreak Hotel! I’m not sure acting as a signpost for toilets is … More Lost and found at the Heartbreak Hotel, Cape Crawford
There were a couple of clues on the road in, that this place was going to be different! It was well worth the drive. Boodjamulla, (Lawn Hill) National Park was simply stunning. Spent some time here hiking around. When I look at the photographs it’s hard to believe they are all from the same place … More Stretching the legs at Boodjamulla, (Lawn Hill) National Park
Decided to take a little side trip to Karumba, a town known for fishing and sunsets. I got there in time for the weekly market. Love the body language on these men, they really don’t want to be there, I think they are just about tolerating their kids. Fishing here is serious business, the golf … More Gone Fishing……….almost
