Local Sierra Club leader Bruce Encke will will recount his 2014 journey with other Sierra Clubbers across northwestern Australia. He says the aboriginal people told them that they believe that everything was created by dreaming, and that after experiencing 15 days of travel across 3,000 miles of the rough, untamed wilderness, he could see why. Their journey across the Kimberly, from Broome to Darwin, revealed incredible open vistas, beautiful remote waterfalls, amazing wildlife, like wallabies and salties (sea crocodiles), as well as many unique birds. And all of this was experienced in the setting of one of the last truly remote places on earth.
