Adele Island, a tiny speck on a marine chart to the north of One Arm Point, sits right at the centre of the newly released Kimberley Commonwealth Marine Park, a vast marine area that links the Kimberley coast with the newly created Camden Sound Marine Park.

King Tides Broome

Wet season storm clouds build up behind Broome jetty at the Port.

Squelching around near the Broome jetty in soft, velvety mud to mid calf, I noticed a featherstar waving delicate feathery arms with stripes in shades of milky coffee in a shallow, sandy pool. Broome is famous for its large tidal variations and the King tides over Easter brought super highs and super lows with a difference of up to 10m.

Kimberley Media's cameras

I’m sitting in Broome surrounded by camera and sound gear, trying to magically condense a great pile of stuff into a light and compact arrangement for a forthcoming wet season trip up the Kimberley coast.  What I need is the photographic equivalent of the Tardis.
