Get out of the way! They stink and take up to 1km to stop so don't make them
slam on the brakes or you're dead.

1. Its very hot even in the dry season

5. There is no need to rush in Broome- its too hot to hurry!
6. If a road train with a full load of cattle is behind you, get out of
the way!
7. The red dust you hear about really can get into everything and is so
beautiful, you'll never forget it.
8. There's something really special about the boab trees
9. If you're backpacking, go to Broome, there's always jobs available
including running the Camel Safari, working in shops/restaurants and the
many lovely resorts
10. Once you've been there, you'll want to go back :-)

Broome was a blast and I'm so glad I went (and left a large chunk of my pay
there, but what else are holidays for? ;-) )

Seeing the brolgas in their natural habits was a real highlight. Reminds me
of a Christmas song we sang as children and doesn't get sung anymore.

It's been a long, cold winter in the Blue Mountains and I can't wait to see
