About Me

Been fascinated about the Kimberley since the 1960s. Been to many places but the Kimberely will always be cherished. Have now travelled there about 18 times since the mid '80s. The last 4 trips involved 10 to 19 day treks either alone or with my brother, either by being dropped off in some remote location by chopper or simply walking off into the scrub by the side of some dusty track. Have seen some fascinating sights and had quite unbelievable experiences, not to mention finding some outstanding rock art sites that possibly haven't been sighted by white fellas (you always keep them secret). Anyhow, so impressed by people like Kevin...that's the way to do it. Quite adverse to people like 'wild man bear' who just unnecessarily exploit and abuse it, and leave unfortunate signs of presence other than foot prints. The Kimberley needs preservation...despite its wildness, isolation and inaccessibility, man will get in there and surely change it. Walk quietly and carefully, only touch what you need, hide your presence...just consume the sights and enjoy the sense that you may be the first person to be where you are standing...then just quietly mutter to yourself....'wow'!!

I'm about to head out again...3 weeks trekking by foot thru the far NE region of the Kimberley of Westn Aust in June/July 2013: me, my brother and our backpacks. I can't find a great deal of info regarding this area (a good sign for a new place to explore); however, if there is anybody out there who may be familiar with this area please feel free to contact me, otherwise I'll write a little of my adventures here when I return.
