On Friday, we visited the Willie Creek Pearl Farm. We could have paid for a tour that included a ride in and air-conditioned coach, but we decided we would drive ourselves in our own air-conditioned car.
Getting there was easy enough, the farm is located 38 kilometres north of Broome (23.1 miles), with the last 14 kilometres along what turned out to be a very red, very well graded, dirt road (8.1 miles). As dirt roads go, it was rather smooth and we were informed it had been freshly graded only two days previous.
I can’t get over the colour of the dirt here in the Kimberley.
Granted, this was not the first red dirt we’ve seen in Western Australia, the sand was a similar colour in Francois Peron National Park. But this was a much deeper hue, and worth a special mention.
