Oct-Dec is commonly referred to as the ‘Build-Up’ in the North but the wet season is teasing at the moment; we have had some early showers, great lightening shows and big storms! Locals welcome the wet season as a time of rejuvenation. It is celebrated by residents, the traditional landowners of the Kimberley, and the native flora and fauna as a season of rebirth and renewal.
The East Kimberly is looking especially wonderful; greenery springing up everywhere, trees smiling and the locals are laughing at the sheer joy of rain in the overwhelming humidity of pre wet season build up months PLUS it’s mango season here so at the office we are merrily cutting up and dehydrating mangoes daily for our healthy options for guests in 2022; we have been gathering gubinge (kakadu plum) and local herbs to add to our selection of bush tucker for guests travelling with us through Purnululu, Mitchell Plateau and the Kununurra/Wyndham area. The fishing is also great – fat brim, barramundi and cherubim have been on the menu.
We’re currently seeking some clarification on border arrangements for 2022 and will be providing an update here over the next 4-6 weeks with WA border opening dates plus our season opening dates. At this stage we are still going to be operating from April 1 2022.
