Having a Croc of a time at Matso's Brewery

Asking the locals places to see in Broome, Matso's Brewery was a popular suggestion so we decided to check it out and taste some local beer, ciders and have a bite to eat before braving the Malcolm Douglas Wildlife and Crocodile Park.  We were give a free coupon for testers with our camel ride so we decided to take advantage and find out favour drop to tantalize our taste buds and warm out bellies (and hearts too!).  Within our tasters my favourite by far was the ginger beer, closely followed by the Mango infused beer.  We also had a mango cider, and it was refreshing and tasty.  Kamahli and I shared a mixed plate of Turkish Bread, homemade garlic hummus (which was amazing), smoked kangaroo meat, honey ham and mussels.  The entire place had a friendly vibe, and the staff ensured you were looked after and of course had a full drink at all times!

Then it was onto the Wildlife and Crocodile Park just outside of the Broome town centre.  It was established by Malcolm Douglas; an iconic croc/animal enthusiast.  As a little girl, I remember travelling up to Broome from Karratha and the crocodile park sticks in my memory as one of my favourite places.  With the passing of Douglas in 2010, the crocodile park I remembered has been moved and the park now has over 5000 crocodiles and alligators, as well as wallabies, Kangaroo's, dingoes and other Australia Wildlife.  It is very informative and a popular tourist destination.  Make sure you get there for the feedings and information sessions!!

Broome Dreaming Part 1 (My humps, my humps, my humps, my humps)

My two week holiday has come to an end.. and I finally have some solid Internet back (Dodgy and lack of Internet can be blamed for no posts!).  I have always loved the Kimberley and the Pilbara having lived there when I was in primary school.  I remember frequenting Broome and Coral Bay, and becoming addicted to the sun and the ocean.  Maybe this is where my constant need for travel stemmed from? 

Broome is a bit of everything I love - It's chilled, it's mostly hot and sunny (apparently it has had more rainfall then the wet season as of late!) , it has friendly people and is surrounded by the beach.  Perfecto.  We stayed at the 'Beaches of Broome' a well known backpackers that felt more like a hotel rather then a hostel.  The cleanliness was amazing and the outdoor pool was defiantly a bonus.

Our first activity was the all so touristy camel riding along Cable Beach.  My outfit needed to be comfy, and I kind of felt that I needed to wear something along the lines of 'Arabian nights' since we were riding a camel and all!!

 Keep tuned for the rest of the trip!  And get out there and see the world.

It's pretty amazing :)
