Last week I am privileged to be selected by The University of Western Australia to promote tertiary education to students around The Kimberley Region. This is my first trip to Broome and I thoroughly enjoyed myself up there. Broome is located approximately 2200 km North of Perth. Broome is a historical pearling town and it is popular holiday destination. Broome is a melting pot of different cultures such as Aboriginal Australian, Caucasian, Chinese, Malay, Philippines etc. What amazes me is that the Broome community is truly experiencing a multicultural society, where people from different cultural backgrounds can live together as one.
I would like to thank my main sponsor, The Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics for this trip. Thank you Qantas for flying me to and from Broome safely. Thank you to Aspire UWA, School of Indigenous Studies and Scitech WA for lending us a helping hand to make this trip a reality and success. We worked Monday to Thursday but on Friday we were lucky to be given a day off to visit some of the many tourist attractions in Broome. Here are some of the photos I have taken:
