I drink lots of water during the day and my glass sits on a coaster depicting Horizontal Falls in the vast Kimberley region of Western Australia. The Falls are a natural phenomenon David Attenborough has described as “one of the greatest wonders of the natural world”.
Covering more than 420,000 square kilometers, first settled by humans somewhere between 40,000 and 65,000 years ago, this ancient region has fewer people per square kilometre than almost any other place on earth. Its remarkable landscapes, spectacular gorges and thundering waterfalls, are a sight to behold and on its coast lie some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, untouched coral atolls and rugged islands with an amazing variety of marine life.
The coaster is a reminder of one of my favourite places to visit in the entire world - the ultimate bucket list destination.
