Sample the Gorges of the Gibb River Road from Broome in a Day

  • Posted by Rosemary on 6 October 2017

The Gibb River Road stretches for 669kms from Derby in the west to almost Kununurra in the east, of the Kimberley region of Western Australia.  Although there are some stretches of bitumen enroute, the mostly gravel Gibb River Road is known to adventurous travellers as one of the great drives in Australia.  The remoteness and lack of communication can be daunting for less experienced travellers, so a guided day tour from Broome provides a chance to visit two of the major natural attractions.

My Day on the Cape Leveque Tour – Culture, Pearls, Beauty & More!

  • Posted by on 14 March 2017

The long, dusty road from Broome to Cape Leveque on the tip of the Dampier Peninsula is well travelled by locals, tour companies, freight transporters, mail contractors and visitors.  No matter how often the road is graded, the regular traffic creates ruts and corrugations in the 90kms unmade section which can be difficult to negotiate for those used to the black top. 

Travellers who are traversing Australia with their cars and caravans may decide to forgo the joy of bouncing their way along the ‘track’ and take a guided tour instead.

Kimberley Bushtucker Liqueurs – A Taste of Broome

  • Posted by Casey on 20 May 2016

When you are presented with the opportunity to try something a little bit different, you have to jump on it in my opinion. Too many people stick to their same old Sauvignon Blanc or Merlot night in and out without really seeing what else is out there. It’s a darn shame if you ask me, because from wine to liqueur to food – there are so many weird and wonderful products on the market and some you may only get to try once in a lifetime.

So when I received a lovely gift from Broome last year, I was over-the-moon to try something so rare and unique. The lovely delivery man dropped off a fairly heavily rectangle box postmarked Broome. My intrigue got the better of me and I had to open it there and then at my desk in the office.

What lay before me were 4 absolutely gorgeous heart shaped glass bottles with a rather interesting looking liquid inside. Knowing who had sent me these treats, I knew the liquid would be some form of alcohol! Being a wine blogger, my liquor normally doesn’t come in this form but as mentioned – I’m always up for trying something new + I knew those heart shaped bottles would make perfect vases after the inside was consumed!
