        My second last trip on True North. I have practically circumnavigated Australia during the last year on this magnificent vessel. My journey on this occasion started in Fremantle, Western Australia and ended in the Port of Dampier. Along the way we visited the Abrolhos Island's, Steep Point, Dirk Hartog Island, Shark Bay, Coral Bay, Ningaloo Reef, and the Montebello Islands. Once again the remote beauty of Australia was in full display with amazing coastal headlands, tranquil bays, coral atolls, and windswept islands abounding with life. Life under the water was just as impressive with spectacular diving, snorkeling, and fishing. Along with the visual spectacular came an amazing history, from savagery and barbarism on the Abrolhos Islands, to Atomic testing in the Montebello's. It was truly amazing to think what had taken place in this incredibly remote region of Australia. As I speak True North has started it's iconic Kimberley Wilderness season and will be thrilling the lucky few who will have the privilege to witness one of the worlds greatest' wonders. I have come a full circle and wish to once again visit the Kimberley. The experience on "True North" goes beyond my feeble little videos. Nothing can replace a real life experience. My advice to anyone who want's to be moved by a unique holiday adventure, get on True North and experience the wonderment of Australia's hidden treasures.

          Excerpt from the documentary film of the first British atomic bomb test. This clip, from a documentary made by Anvil Films for the British Ministry of Supply, is about Operation Hurricane – the first British atomic bomb test, conducted in the Montebello Islands 100 kilometres off the north-western coast of Western Australia in October 1952. The clip begins inside British workshops where monitoring instruments, explosion-measuring devices, documentation equipment and parts of the bomb are manufactured and tested. The final stages and countdown, including the bomb’s detonation and explosion, are recorded on the island in both colour and black and white.
