The Kimberley gets under your skin

by Rich Keam on 29 October 2013, 09:10AM The Kimberley gets under your skin The Kimberley – named one of the best regions in the world by Lonely Planet and Rich Keam After three weeks exploring the Kimberley in Western Australia, I almost missed my flight home.

Swimming with whale sharks

Swimming with whale sharks

Everyone asks if it’s scary, swimming with a whale shark. Thrilling, yes, squeal-inducing, of course but there is also something really serene about gliding through the water with these giant fish.
