Wyld Woman Goes Bush

A radical life changing personal development story of how a woman walks away from her 'norm' travelling the Australian outback, meeting with Australian Aboriginals, then venturing into Tibetan Buddism….. and then realising the ancient wisdom to expanding consciousness has always been within.

Fishing – the BEST day of my life!

Fishing in Tropical North Queensland with my Aboriginal friend was the BEST day of my life! fishing-cooktown-9

As we set out in our small tinny I felt both excitement and trepidation. We were going to CROC waters in a tinny for crabbing and fishing. We were going out for the day.

I had the best views at the front of the boat which was stocked crab nets, hand fishing lines, buckets and even a pot for cooking up our catch. There wasn’t a whole lot of room for my feet until I sorted out the menagerie into a more organised pile to be able to put my feet up and enjoy the view.

We stopped our boat in shallow waters and hopped out to throw a net for bait.

Out here it’s void of civilisation…and so quiet…peaceful… and beautiful!

After catching a few small fish for bait we headed out to set the crab nets.

Moving right in close to the mangroves we had our bait in and tossed the crab net out of the boat with a floating ball to locate it later in the day. It was near these mangroves that we saw a female croc hovering around someone else’s crab pot….which we assumed must have had a crab in it.

Once all the crab nets were put out it was time to do some fishing.

With our fish and 1 crab we pulled the tinny on shore and set up a bush camp to cook up some lunch.

Mmmm….delicious lunch!

We collected beautiful red seeds for necklaces at this bush camp.

It was such a delightful day! I can not describe properly in words how a day in the bush makes you feel. It was truly the most deeply peaceful I’ve ever felt.
