For many, the Kimberley is considered Australia’s final frontier. Wild and remote, it’s a massive region that is three times the size of the UK (and bigger than 75% of the world’s countries!) The raw beauty of the region must be seen to be believed. Whether you see the Kimberley by land or sea, you will leave here feeling enriched and spellbound by the raw beauty of this isolated part of Australia.

We had the privilege of catching up with Broome local, Marlikka Perdrisat, about her Concepts of Country project.

In 2017 Marlikka was nominated for Australian of the Year for her involvement with Kimberley Girl, a development program for young Indigenous women. She has also completed a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Management, and a Juris Doctor in Law.

With a passion for supporting others, Marlikka aims to use her professional and personal experiences to write and produce stories that provide a voice for the under-represented and to become a project manager and support other emerging storytellers.

You can watch her “Concepts of Country – Jadiny” below.
