Aussie RT Day 9:  Tunnel Creek & Windjana Gorge

Tunnel Creek flows through a water-worn tunnel beneath the limestone of the Napier Range – part of an extensive fossilized barrier reef from Devonian times 360 million years ago.

The Kimberley via Gibb River Road

And his name is Hercules … but first let me explain Stacy and I came to be proud owners of a 1995 4WD Jeep Cherokee! When our plane to Darwin landed at 1:00 in the morning, Stacy and I wondered where we would sleep? It seemed silly to spend money on a hostel for only […]

Why Australia … again?

A friend recently asked me – “If your favorite thing is to go where you have never been, then why are you going back to Australia?” As I pondered my growing list of places I must see before I die, I did wonder  – why do I have such a strong pull toward the land […]
