The Irukangji jellyfish zones. The right ocean conditions need to be: a very light north easterly breeze, around as little as 5 knots with dead flat water. If you see little jelly buttons (Salps) half the size of your fingernails on the edge of the shore then there is definitely a high probability that there will be Irukanji jellyfish in the waters. Sea turtles love eating them. Swimming in a full body lycra swim or wet suit is recommended.

Gorges along the Gibb River Road. I did a four wheel drive bus tour along this road a number of years ago staying in luxurious tented cabins. Best holiday I've ever had.

Emma Gorge resort tented cabins. This is my type of camping. An amazing place to stay. I had to rescue a tree frog out of a terrified friends toilet. I just love those little green guys

Piccaninnie Creek. It was dry when we went there. The bungle bungles are mind blowingly spectacular. Put them on your holiday bucket list.

The Irukandji is a tiny 2.5cm jellyfish prevalent in the waters of tropical northern Australia. Stings from this very hard to see jellyfish produce intense pain and very occasionally death. Treatment involves hospitalisation, usually in ICU, lots of pain killers, cardiac monitoring and magnesium infusions. Irukandji season is usually November-May. Most beaches have warning signs. You actually have more chance of being bitten by a snake or a crocodile in the Kimberley btw,

Green tree frogs abound in the Kimberley. Always wet your hands before you pick them up. They are so soft and very cute.

El Questro Homestead for the Hollywood outback experience. I didn't stay here as it can cost up to $2800 per night and only takes 18 guests at any one time. i believe Kylie Minogue and Russell Crowe have enjoyed it here. Emma Gorge resort was pretty specky and its not far off.
