On the way to El Questro station, (Ranch) we came across Klaus, a German traveller who converted an old van to be towed with his two camels, Willie and Snowy, and a nameless dog. Naturally, we stopped for a chat and gave him some oranges which he promptly fed to his camels.

While staying at El Questro station, we got up very early and were driven to the Chamberlain Gorge, one of the highlights of the trip. The lady who guided us into the boat was hilarious. She pointed out the yellow safety vests under each seat and proceeded to tell us that crocodiles in the gorge are attracted to yellow, so she suggested in case we were sinking, to swim fasted than the last person. She also pointed out the fire extinguishers on board of this all-aluminium boat.
Broome is the home of one of Australia's number 1 pearling industries.
We started our Kimberley Adventure in Broome, while sight-seeing, we found the old cinema under the stars (no roof). Probably not a good business during the wet season.
