A giant guide to the Kimberley
« on: March 18, 2019, 10:35:30 PM »
G'day guys,

I've just finished writing a huge, comprehensive guide to travelling the Kimberley. It includes everything from what to see, where to stay and get fuel, costs, tours that you can do, passes required, itinerary suggestions and the list goes on and on.

I've been enjoying the photos shared around of the McGirrs Kimberley adventure; it really is the most amazing place.

If you are interested in travelling there, have a read - The Ultimate Guide to the Kimberley

Take care

This forum is just an incredible source of info for people planning trips, beats any tourist guide hands down.

Thanks Aaron, Love the photos and the fishing and the places you went, I went though the Kimberly in 1988 with my dad and mum and brother and his wife and kids, Once you have seen the Kimberly and stayed for a couple of months nothing in Aus come close, thanks for sharing, Craig

Interesting. It should just slide up and down the page on the side, and not be very intrusive at all. I'll send you a PM

Same here on windows 8. Left margin is out too far by about 5 letters. Great work though.

Same with me. It's annoying as it hangs over the page while you try to read it. On mine a lot more than 5 letters.

Awesome job :cup:
Out of interest do you make any $ when someone clicks on one of the ads (which are actually discreet). If so, i will be be sure to click on a few and perhaps some other Swaggers will do the same.

Thanks for letting me know about the issues. I've moved the floating share buttons to the other side of the page. Hopefully that fixes the issue. I try and check on several devices, but its impossible to cover every setup.

Awesome job :cup:

Yep, the ads do make a few bucks. When you are paying nearly $150 a month for hosting the costs have to be covered somehow. I'm glad they aren't too annoying. I don't encourage anyone to go out of their way and click the ads, as it goes against the terms of service.

Cheers
Aaron
