The Kimberley Region is one of the most natural in the world, situated in the north west of Australia. We travel via helicopter to stunning fishing spots on the Chamberlain River, where a hilariously enthusiastic host helps Rex land healthy barramundi. Whilst out to sea, Rex gets his giant trevally eaten by a black tipped reef shark. We examine Long Island Reef, abundant with sea cucumbers, starfish and giant clams and then go in search of ancient Aboriginal rock art.
In the second part of this feature, we focus our attention specifically on Broome in the far tropical north of Western Australia. The Broome Region has a reputation for providing first class fishing and Rex isn't disappointed. Giant trevally, mackerel and crocodiles all feature but the highlight has to be Rex's first ever black kingfish, a monstrous 38lb specimen.
We also take part in the inaugral Fly Rod Championships for sailfish, famous for their fast strikes, long runs and spectacular acrobatics.
Along the way we gain an insight into the early traders of the region, see examples of fossilised dinosaur footprints as well as learning about Broome's thriving cultured pearl industry.
