Broome is the gateway to one of the world's last frontiers of pristine wilderness - Australia's North West.
Every year the largest migration of humpback whales in the world occurs off the West Australian coast as the whales head north from Antarctica to warm, tropical waters off Broome where they mate and calve.

Spending time in close proximity to these graceful, ocean roaming beasts reminds me how lucky we are in Australia, how precious these animals are and the importance of protecting them.
