It looks HOT, with many artists and photographers contributing pieces depicting the Walmadan area and the struggle of trying to protect it.

Despite the wet season, a struggling solar system, the threat of nearby cyclones, and being trapped in the bush due to a flooded dirt road, we have produced this guide primarily from out on Country!

The Indigenous Mob of the Dampier Peninsular hold a Corroborree at Walmadan. As a very rare and special event they invite guardia (whitefella) to dance corroborate with them. Many laughs to be had by the countrymen as they try to teach guadia to dance the right way!  Photo: Julia Rau

To print one of these camp guides, email:

kimberleydirectaction@gmail.com

We can send you a link to a high-resolution copy, suitable for printing, and send you printing instructions. These guides are designed to print out into an A5 booklet (A4 folded in half – like a regular zine). The section in the centre is about local plants and their uses. This beautifully illustrated section can pull out to be displayed on your wall.

If you have any questions or trouble printing don’t hesitate to email.

To help spread the word about the direct action being taken to protect the Kimberley, about this ecologically diverse and culturally powerful area, and about ways to become involved, we suggest printing copies out for all your friends, family and workmates. You could even leave a few copies at your local cafe, library etc.

Thankyou very much to Ray from the Happy Herb Company who donated a big mob of equipment to Camp Walmadan!
