the 60's - what a decade

Koolama at Broome Jetty - ABC & Kununurra Historical Society

We arrived on the Koolama on Jan 2nd 1961 and moved to a house in Progress Drive, Nightcliff. There was still a lot of construction happening at the primary school - plenty to keep this boy's interest. Moved to Aralia St for a year and then on to The Narrows until heading back to Perth in 1970. There was so much to do as a kid - on the bike exploring all day long. So thankful to have grown up there.
