Tracks below the tide
Situated on the far north-western coastline of Western Australia, Broome is famous for its 120-year role in the pearling industry. Proudly producing the world’s finest pearls, this small, multicultural community continues to uphold it traditions, and pearling remains one of the town’s major industries. Today, other industries such as tourism play a role in sustaining the town and its inhabitants. The discovery of widespread dinosaur footprints over the past 25 years has helped to create a significant tourism drawcard, earning Broome the title ‘Gateway to Australia’s Dinosaur Coast’.
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:
Walking along the shoreline of Western Australia’s Dampier Peninsula in the late afternoon, you cannot fail to notice the total tranquility of a pristine wilderness. To the west the sun dips onto a turquoise sea, its final rays rebounding off blood-red banks that fringe the coastline like broken walls of an ancient fortress. Below them, a weathered sandstone outcrop tumbles out into the sea, disappearing and then reappearing in the ebb and flow of a rising tide.
