This morning we’ll travel through the remote and beautiful landscape of the Western Kimberley, learning of local history, people and the environment crossing the Fitzroy River. We visit the 1,500 year old infamous Prison Boab Tree with it’s large hollow girth of over 14 metres. It was used in the 1890s as a lockup for indigenous prisoners on their way to Derby for sentencing. We also call into one of the Indigenous art centres in the area where we see the paintings of the culturally significant Wandjina and the Gwion Gwions. Derby is home to some of the highest tidal movement in the world and no trip to the town would be complete with-out a walk on their horseshoe shaped wharf. Our accommodation is in comfortable motel style accommodation.
