IIn a chapter-by-chapter depiction, Hugh Edwards explores
the reason why Kimberley is renowned for its colourful
history; a record of gold rushes, hauls of pearl shell, great
cattle drives and battles between Aborigines and settlers. It
is now known for its store of natural riches and exotic
geography, ranging from the tropic fiords of northern
crocodile coasts to the blue mountains of the interior.
For such a huge area it is sparsely populated, and Hugh
Edwards depicts a wonderful tourist destination for those
who want to delve deeper into an area of Australia which is
believed to date back 350 million years.
‘Visitors of the future will come to seek what they cannot
find elsewhere in an overcrowded world. They will look for space and unspoiled nature,
Kimberley has limitless horizons and magnificent wilderness.’ - Author.
