Staying with a wonderful family in Broome we learnt about Bower Birds, medicinal plants and a blockade attempting to stop a mining company exploiting some pristine land just North of the town. On our way up to Cape Leveque, an Aborigine-owned wilderness camp, we stopped and talked to the protesters and two bored kids were pleased to meet and play with our two. Driving on deep sand for 100kms we went through bush fires to reach the camp – so worth it, with phosperesence in the ocean at night and Treasure Island readings by the fire.
