    Broome, Western Australia from 11.30am until 8.30pm
    Having a world-famous pearl and diamond industry, it could be said that the northwestern region of Kimberley is quite literally a jewel of Australia. But there are many other characteristics that make this place a gem. First, there is the city of Broome, boasting a proud, independent-minded heritage and breathtaking scenery, highlighted by turquoise waters and untamed bushland. In fact, as recently as the mid-1980s, Broome was accessible only by dirt road. Second, there are the people, an interesting mix of Aboriginal locals, well-turned-out jewelers and free-spirited artists who sell their works and share their stories. Third is the laid-back attitude, encouraging visitors to relax and appreciate a chance to soak up the warm sun and relaxed ambience.

  19. 04 February 2018

    Geraldton, Western Australia from 8am until 4pm
    The hub and capital of Australia’s Midwest, Geraldton entices visitors with its famously beautiful coastal location, with activities of diving, surfing, hiking and fishing, along with some of the best wind and kite surfing anywhere. What makes Geraldton (“Gero” to the locals) even more appealing is its stable regional economy, certainly appreciative of itinerates but also functioning somewhat independent of them. This commercial vivacity translates to an authentic Aussie experience, giving you a feel for what it is like to live and work on the western edge of the country and what many consider to be the center of a veritable paradise. Just off the coast, the Abrolhos Islands beckon a day’s swim or relaxation, while inland, depending on the season, dazzling wildflowers carpet rolling hills. In town, enjoy a lively food and music scene, mingling among the locals as they pursue their enviable daily routine.
