The most concise guide-book to the vast Kimberley wilderness is now available as an eBook for Apple and Android devices.
Launched as a take-anywhere, glove-boxed sized guide to the Kimberley in April this year, 100 Things To See In The Kimberley, by local guide Scotty Connell, can now be purchased as a digital download, ideal for those who like to store all their books on iPads or Android tablets. What’s more, all purchases of the eBook will help feed disadvantaged kids in the Kimberley.
100 Things to See in the Kimberley is the culmination of a life spent exploring the remote north-west of Australia. Written by Scotty Connell, Kununurra local and award-winning tour guide, the 180-page book takes readers to some of Scotty’s favourite places across the north west of Australia, from stunning, fern-lined pools to incredible waterfalls and through wonders found nowhere else on Earth.
It’s already received critical acclaim from some of Australia’s foremost travel journalists. Allan Whiting of outbacktravelaustralia.com saying, “We thought we’d visited most of The Kimberley attractions, but Scotty’s book showed us a few that we haven’t seen.” Editor of Australian Boating Magazine, Peter Webster said, “Despite reading just about everything that’s ever been written about this fabulous chunk of Australia, I’ve learned a lot more going through his book.” Full time travel blogger, Jacqui Dobner of chaosinatincan.com.au said, “Quite possibly the most concise and complete guide to the most amazing area in Australia, and shamefully for us, there are so many gorgeous places that we had no idea even existed.”
Scotty says of the new format for his book, “I love showcasing the beauty of the Kimberley region and the release of our new e-book means that I can share this with more people.”
Scott’s passionate about giving back to the community, so to celebrate the launch of the eBook, Exploring Eden Media will donate $4 (the cost of one meal) from every copy purchased to Feed The Little Children Inc, a Broome-based charity that provides meals to in-need kids in the community; a cause that’s always been close to Scotty’s heart. Part of the proceeds of Scotty’s Kimberley Spirit apparel is already donated to the charity. He says, “Feed The Little Children provides a really important service to Kimberley communities and we love being able to financially support such a great organisation and the brilliant work that it does.”
Unlike many guides written about the Kimberley, this one was penned by a local who spends nearly every day searching out its secrets. In print form, it’s designed to fit in a backpack or a glove box, rather than be left on a coffee table. As a digital download, it’s a rich, pictorial experience with information and advice that locals normally spend years gathering.
Not specifically a camping or driving guide to the Kimberley, 100 Things to See in the Kimberley was written for anyone coming to the Kimberley who wants to experience as much of the region as possible without moving there. It is just as useful to travellers towing a caravan as it is to those taking a chopper between remote coastal stations! In the foreword by Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins, he says “This book gives you a taste of the experiences that await you in this geographical masterpiece, and just some of the passion that Scotty has for the place.”
