Travel Broome, Australia

Welcome to Broome's Outback!

October 14th, 2009

After staying a day in Perth we took an early flight to Broome in the northern part of Western Australia. During the flight we could see the enormous changes in the landscape turning ever more red and red. Welcome to the outback!

In Broome we picked up our 4WD and checked in at the The Oaks Resort. Because we arrived early and check in wasn't untill 2pm we decided to drive up to Gantheaume Point, 7 km south of Broome where the beach flows over in a set of gorgeous red cliffs.

This place is truly magic and i'm not just saying that. This is the only place in the WORLD where real dinosaur footprints are still visible during periods of low tide. When I read about these prints in the Lonely Planet I thought it was just some kind of story untill I saw them. Amazing! These footprints date back to 200 million years and are nowhere else to be found in the rest of Australia.

After taking some of a million pictures we drove back to Broome where the weekend Courthouse markets were held. Luckily we arrived in time to witness the work of some animal rescue workers who were giving information about their animals. After seeing some snakes and fruit bats we bumped into the joey corner where rescued kangaroo's were held. (Australia has a lot of road kill and sometimes when a mother gets hit by a car her little one might be still be carried with her.)

These baby roo's were so cute and I even got to hold one: personal highlight!!
