Our good friends Richard & Marika just did a tour of the Kimberley in the far northwest of Western Australia, one of the most remote & wild places on our planet. You can see more of his photos of this beautiful place here, I dream of meeting these trees in this lifetime…

  1. Hey Mo–Did you ever read “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupery? Boab tree in there figures prominently.

  2. Carol says:

    Nothing malevolent about our boabs, Mo. hang onto that dream – I’m sure you’ll get there in this lifetime.

    Wild beauty! Love the Prison Baobs and the caves and, well, its all beautiful, oh and the Bower bird nest 🙂

    Oh my goodness, now that brought back memories! When I was 11, we went around Australia, and Tunnel Creek was one of the highlights. Mum, dad, my little brother Roddy, and I walked all the way through with another guy who happened to be camping there. It was incredible. Roddy lost a thong ( for non-Aussie readers, I mean a flip-flop not underwear!) somewhere halfway through, we joked later that he was deliberately trying to leave his mark at famous landmarks as he lost quite a few over the months we were away! I remember there being cave paintings near the exit. Such a long time ago!

    What a magnificent tribute to our country! The photos bring back wonderful memories of our time there although my photography in comparison leaves a lot to be desired!
