Perhaps the best place in Australia to start this little travel blog is Broome in the far north-west of Australia.
It is a great place to visit in Winter as it is generally a beautiful, mild, warm climate at that time with marvellous clear skies which don’t get too cold at night and great for exploring and understanding how the earth, planets, Milky Way and the Universe fit in - tourists can join in on astronomy nights and get to view the planets in telescopes as well as learn how it all works.
If that is not enough, the whole region is steeped in geologic history with unique geology demonstrating the earliest evolution of the earth - see http://www.ayton.id.au/wp02/?p=6037.
If you are lucky enough to visit on a spring tide (eg. a full moon), not only do you get to see and photograph the rather unique “staircase to the moon” illusion, but at low tide you may be able to find footprints in the sandstone rocks on the shore left by dinosaurs.
Winter is also a great time to enjoy the expansive ocean beaches - but bring your water bottles and sun protection - for a lovely walk along the beach from the dinosaur footprints to Cable Beach.

On a fateful night in 2006, 26 year old mother of two, Elizika Puertollano, had her life crushed in a head-on collision with a drunk driver. She lost two precious things that night, Bevaanee her beautiful ten week old baby girl and her own ability to walk. Eight years later, Elizika shares her story about surviving such a devastating ordeal. An intimate look into the life of a brave young women’s quest to survive against the odds, this documentary explores the struggles and celebrations through interviews with Elizika and her family. It is a story about an inspirational young woman with gutsy determination and a love for life as she aims for her next goal in life; to walk again.
"The Human Rights Alliance released a statement describing the homelessness tragedy of the Kimberley as a scandal, as “despicable racism” and has slammed the West Australian State Government and the Federal Government for continuing to neglect the Kimberley’s Aboriginal homelessness".
