Willie Creek

This week we are at the Willie Creek Pearl Farm, north of Broome in Western Australia. Pearls are grown inside oyster shells and take two years to grow. The shells can be used up to four times and each time the make a bigger pearl. So the really big pearls take at least eight years to grow.

We had heaps of fun at this place, so we hope you like it too.

Kimberley Ranges

Hi Guys,

This week we are heading across the Kimberley Ranges all the way to the Dampier Peninsula. We travel along the Gibb River Road which is over 600 km of dusty dirt track. We saw some crocodiles and drove through many creeks and rivers.

We also met a lady named Meena who’s Mum is an Aborigine and she was raised as one of the Stolen Generation children at a mission. Meena taught us about Bush Tucker and how her people had lived off the land for thousands of years.

This is part one of the Kimberley videos and we hope you like it.

Windjana Gorge

This week we are off to Windjana Gorge in Western Australia. The huge limestone rocks are all that remain from an ancient under water reef system. We saw more fresh water crocodiles than anywhere on the trip.

One of the people staying in our camp also saw a 20 foot long scrub python on a night walk!

We hope you enjoy it!

Lawn Hill National Park

Well, here is Lawn Hill National Park. This is an amazing place and none of us wanted to leave. It is located in North West Queensland and has been occupied by Aborginies for thousands years, before becoming a cattle property. In 1986 the cattle property owner donated the land to the people of Queensland for it to be used as a National Park. Today it is jointly managed by the traditional owners called the Waagni people and QLD Parks and Wildlife.

The fresh water crocodiles were a bit scary at first, but they really don’t worry about us.

We hope you enjoy it!
