James Price Point, on the Kimberley coast, has been in the news because Woodside -- with a who’s-who of other drillers including BP, BHP Billiton, Shell, Mitsubishi, and Chevron -- is set to build the world’s biggest gas factory there. But this ancient region has another story to tell.
It's a stunning ochre-red headland located north of Broome, and culturally known as Walmadan. It's an important area on the indigenous songcycle belonging to the law and culture of Goolarabooloo people, known as the Northern Tradition of Law. Since Bugarregarre, or the Dreamtime, their ancestors have walked and lived in this country.
