Broome is like nowhere else in the world. A town with a point of difference located on a very small Peninsula in the Kimberley Region, in North-Western Australia. This is where one of the world’s last great wildernesses meets the Indian Ocean. Broome’s exotic pearling town past has left a rich history and a distinctive melting pot of wonderful multi-cultural mix of people. Pristine waters, wide empty beaches, abundant wildlife, tropical climate and vivid breathtaking colours.
It’s photography time! We head north along a 4WD track to coastal locations including James Price Point where rich red pindan cliffs drop onto white sandy beaches, Quondong Point, Willie Creek, Gantheaume Point and Cable Beach, just to mention a few!
‘Pindan is a name given to the red-soil country of the south-western Kimberley region of Western Australia. The term comes from a local language and applies both to the soil and to the vegetation community associated with it’
Two full day exploring Broome’s coastline and its amazing inland treasures. Early sunrise at Simpsons Beach, we get creative capturing the coastal landscapes, mangroves, big tidal movements and wildlife. Late afternoon sessions workshop to capture the amazing vivid colours of the South Kimberley, stunning sunset, blue hour, twilight and stargazing. Not to forget the mesmerising ‘STAIRCASE TO THE MOON’ phenomenon. Definitely a highlight!
