    Mitchell Falls


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     konacraig traveled to a remote region in northwest Australia called the Kimberleys, where few tourists venture. His journey to Mitchell Falls, shown below, involved: a flight from Los Angeles to Sydney, another flight to Darwin, an expedition ship ride down the coast of Western Australia, a boat to get to shore and a helicopter ride! “The Kimberleys are hot, primitive, the way parts of the earth must have looked millions of years ago. No people, just nature,” said the California resident. “If you have the time and want to see something really unique, see the Kimberleys.”

    We traveled by plane, boat, helicopter and zodiac to reach Mitchell Falls at the headwaters of Hunter River in The Kimberleys in Western Australia.

    Essentially untouched by people it is part of a massive eco system of tropical rain forests, rivers, marshes and estuaries where fresh and saltwater crocodiles thrive in mangrove swamps. Tides can fluctuate at 10 meters in the area.

    It is worth seeing.
