Well – here I am. I’ve made it to Broome and had my first look around the beautiful Kimberley region of Western Australia. It’s been a huge move from Cairns – I’m still setting up camp just off the Cable Beach road – but I’ve had a good look around and I like it a lot.
I’ve started on the breakfast show on ABC Kimberley– and I’m getting used to the 4.30am alarm after a dozen years working at the other end of the day. I’ve watched the sun set over the sea, I’ve kicked up the dust at the region’s biggest indigenous cultural event, seen a really good film at the world’s oldest outdoor cinema, seen Steve Pigram play at the Roebuck Bay pub – I’m having a great time in my new home town.
Here’s some pictures – more stories from the west soon.
