where the desert meets the sea – kimberley to broome

It’s absolutely mind blowing just how big this country! The landscape transforms dramatically as we cross each border. Broome was a visual delight after a 1000km drive through the desert.

We blew it!

Yeah that’s right we have travelled all this way without a 4WD and missed out on a truck load of epic places. Every time we pull up we are told of yet another hot spot out of our reach, but we didn’t miss all the good spots!

After leaving Kununurra we called into El Questro and took the 1.5km hike through the stunning Emma Gorge and arrived at a waterfall cascading down a sheer red rock face into a refreshing pool.

We got our fix of BOAB trees on the 1000km stretch from Kununurra to Broome. Tom and I were amazed by these trees when we first travel this stretch of road 18 years ago, we were just as excited this time. They pop up out of the barren landscape, you just have to get out and hug a BOAB.

We missed Tunnel creek and Cape Leveque but we did spend a week. Watching sunsets and Moonrises around Broome. The contrasting landscapes were breathtaking and we have added a whole lot of places to our bucket list.

As we move down the west coast  we are already dreaming up our next visit, we will have a 4WD and camper so we can really get lost amongst the beauty!

Broome from the air is like walking into the most amazing art gallery…. the colours the abstracts and patterns are out of this world!!
