7 reasons why the Kimberley Coast is a great holiday destination
Nowhere else in the world does land and sea have the unique interaction you’ll see on the Kimberley Coast. There’s not a hint of civilisation and you can really get a sense of ‘being away from it all.’
Whales and dolphins are regularly spotted along the Kimberley Coast. The area is home to a rich and varied marine life including coral, crustaceans, fish, manta rays, large turtles, sharks and salt-water crocodiles.
On land you could see a rare Komodo dragon, or some of Australia’s native mammals like the Bilby, Quoll and Bandicoot.

Must watch videos
No matter which side of politics you're on, I think you will enjoy How the Government Balances the Budget Each Year. It's an Abbott and Costello classic. It's especially fun for
parents and teachers to watch.
Max was talking to Carter Edward a while back. He is a successful all-round performer – TV, national radio and theatre. He produced the video Advance Australia Fair Dinkum. Max was so impressed by it, that he put it online to share with you. What makes an Australian and why people want to live in Australia. We hope you enjoy it.
Beaumont Children go missing. Their case resulted in one of the largest police investigations in Australian criminal history and remains Australia's most infamous cold case.
The Beaumont case was instrumental in changing the Australian attitude towards child safety. Parents no longer can assume that their children are safe in the same way as earlier generations did.

The beautiful artwork on the cards is by Australian artist Lynn Naismith. In case you're wondering, yes they are also printed in Australia.
We have Australian Pelicans, King Parrots, Major Mitchell's Cockatoo, Rainbow Lorikeets, Crimson Rosellas, Waratah, Gum Blossoms and more coming.
Part of the card's price is being donated to the Australian Koala Foundation to help protect the koala and its habitat.
Max and I hope you will support our store. It's one of the ways we are using to keep this website free to use.
Bill B wrote me asking for help, "Stealaway at the Argyle Tavern in 1986 had a song called I'm Australia. Any information on it? I loaned my cassette out and never got it back. I believe one of the Cooey Brothers was in the group."
"It went something like: I'm Australia, I'm Australia, there's more to me than what you think you see."
If you know what this song is and the name of the band, email me and I will let Bill know.
I often get suggestions for improvements and additions to our website. It keeps me pretty busy trying to implement what I can.
For example Sue wrote me a while ago, "I'm often on your website and enjoy very much my stay here and the improvements you make from time to time :-) As am Aussie and living in Adelaide I would wish your Survey would asked also 'are you living here' as I don't like to be seen as visitor :( Keep up your good work and all the best .... and when I can spare some cent of my pension I'll send you a small amount :-)"
(Thanks! Sue ..ed.)
On my very, very long To Do List, I finally worked my way down to Sue's request and updated our Survey. I hope you will take our Survey when you get a chance. It helps Max and I know what you like, why you visit our site and how we can improve it.
