This week I've been given the grand tour of the Fitzroy Crossing area and outlying Aboriginal communities that are part of the work I am doing for the next year. It s been a hot and dusty trip (averaging 38 to 43C)in the Pajero 4WD, but very worthwhile. Saw much, learnt even more. All of the communities were only accessible by 4WD and on the Friday, rain chased us all the way back to Broome. The Wet isn't far away now and the roads will be impassible- the communites get flooded in for 2-3 months. Logistically it's a huge challenge... how do you get repair crews out to isolated communities?????
