Our southern most stop in the Kimberley included stays at the beautiful Cable Beach, Broome and the Barn Hill Outstation. No stay at Cable Beach is complete without a camel ride and evening spent watching a Cable beach sunset. Humpback whales swam along the coastal waters during our stay and we took advantage of a local charter to see them up close. While we were there, the high tide at Gantheaume Point concealed dinosaur footprints, but the lighthouse and rocky shore were worth exploring. Broome is situated on the traditional lands of the Yawuru people.
The rugged western coastline of the Kimberley is traditional home to the Nyikina people and unique Wandjina aboriginal art. At Derby we watched the tidal movement around the jetty, the highest in Australia at up to 11 metres and second highest in the world. To watch the tide ebb and flow across King Sound was incredible. From Derby we flew to Horizontal Falls in Talbot Bay, enjoying a fast boat ride through the Falls, a cruise up Cyclone Creek and shark feeding. Our home flight over the Buccaneer Archipelago was spectacular.
