Here’s another view of the majestic King George Falls. Taken from True North’s helicopter.
King George Falls is surely the Kimberley’s most spectacular waterfall. There is nothing like being here. The roar of the water is deafening as the twin falls crash 80 metres into a dramatic sea gorge.
Mark, Flemming and I all had different itineraries on this particular day but we all managed to meet up at the edge of a spectacular precipice directly in front of the falls. Flemming stated that this place was the “Perfect office”. Not wrong there mate!
Here’s a favourite of mine taken on the recent Kimberley trip.
In the far northwest Kimberley the presence of monsoon rainforest is not only due to high rainfall but also to the absence of fires. Nestled between turquoise sea and spectacular sandstone the rainforest is totally protected from the frequent wildfires that sweep across the eucalypt dominated savanna above. Remarkably the plants found within this niche habitat are more closely related with those of the jungles of South East Asia than with those of the Australian outback.
As True North cruised through Prince Frederick Harbour everyone was enjoying a gourmet lunch. I could see that a storm was brewing and already had my gear at the ready at the bow of the boat. I quickly finished lunch and went outside and was taken back by the awesome storm TN was steaming towards. I quickly took a few shots and raced back to the dinning room to gather the troops. I found True North Mark but alas Flemming was apparently nowhere to be seen. Before long almost everyone was at the bow and in awe of the storm. Flemming too eventually showed himself amazed at how both Mark and I had failed to find him in the dining room. I swear I did not see you mate!
