A couple of months ago I had the privilege of spending some time with @clairemactaggart in Broome and the Kimberley’s for @countrystylemag and @westernaustralia. Such a beautiful part of the world, will have to head back someday and burn around in the Defender (although all I saw up there were Troopies!)⛺️. The travel piece on Broome is out in the November issue of @countrystylemag.
Streeters Jetty was forged through the mangroves in Dampier Creek in the 1890's by E.W Streeter to aid in his pearl lugging operations. With infrequent air and road traffic at the time, it also served as the community's main access point to the outside world.
Still used commercially well into the 20th century, it was restored in 2000, and is considered a landmark and place of significance as the only remaining pearl luggers' jetty.

So glad we got the opportunity to revisit Broome and explore places we didn't get to last time!
This little place is the end of Streeters Jetty; the old Pearlers Jetty
We came here at high tide to sit, watch and wait for the wildlife to come out and play! 🐦🐞🐊 #streetersjetty#broome#westernaustralia#australia
