The remote pristine Kimberley coastline of Western Australia has drawn the attention of many travellers with its magnificent display of diverse landforms. To explain how these spectacular structures have developed in a land now influenced by Australia's biggest tides is the subject of A Traveller's Guide Kimberley Coast. Especially valuable to those travelling by sea and those wanting to know more about the Australian coast, Kimberley Coast explains in simple terms the relationship between geology, land forming processes, geological eras and recent marine conditions.
Dr Sandy Scott has had a career in high school science teaching, teaching at University of New England and in latter years developing and leading travel programs particularly in Australia and Asia. His many assignments as a guest lecturer since 1998 have provided a unique opportunity to understand the Kimberley coast and appreciate its diversity. Sandy's enquiring nature and broad background experiences have enabled him to interpret the nature and development of the coastal landforms of the region.
