is one of those rare individuals who delights in pitting his might
against the elements – a true adventurer.
This time around he’s really pulled out all the stops by
travelling the length of the Charnley River George in a remote
part of the West Kimberleys.
He didn’t go alone – Douglas was accompanied by his
mate, Sean Dixon, two Aborigines and his excitable kelpie dog.
Together they traversed the deep Charnley River Gorge which runs
through a passage in sheer cliffs – terrain which not even
some of the local Aborigines had crossed.
One the way, the party managed to snare a truly interesting array
of bush tucker, including crocodiles, turtles, a kangaroo and
a black python snake which they “couldn’t resist.”
But some of the most spectacular scenes are filmed around the
ochre-coloured gorge – the Aborigines and the explorers
leave their fingerprints and a message behind them on the walls
as the practical guide to the expedition.
