5-weeks in northern Australia and southeast Indonesia garnered diverse images in 2023: a total eclipse of the sun; the world's oldest living rainforest and largest coral reef; Aboriginal rock art; exotic wildlife; wild waterfalls; turquoise crater lakes; and remote village famous for ikat-weaving and ongoing 600-year whaling tradition. Starting on April 3rd, we flew from Seattle to Tokyo, then to Cairns for exploring from rainforest to reef. From Darwin, we cruised for 15 days from the Kimberley to Indonesia and back; then drove a 9-day circuit through Northern Territory parks via caravan, returning home on May 9th. The Kimberley is the northernmost of the nine regions of the state of Western Australia.
