Kununurra - What a fantastic part of the world
(Sunshine Coast Qld)
Aerial view over Kununurra
We first went to Kununurra and the rest of the Kimberley in 1995 as part of a round Australia trip. My wife and I went back about 6 years ago to do all the "tourist" things that we could not afford the first time and to check out the place for raising kids. It was just as good the second time and I have been trying on and off ever since to find a great job there so I could convince my wife (and 3 kids) that we should move there.
I don't have any one thing I love about the place but it is the whole package, what I like to call a civilised wildness. I figure it is fate that I belong there, my wife's name is Kim, I have a Kimberley stove, my wife bought a Prado "Kimberley pack" and now my youngest girl's middle name is Kimberley and it is the only place we came across that I have any chance of convincing my wife to leave the Sunshine Coast for.
