The 2017 WASG Kimberley expedition took place in July when the intrepid participants, Brett Wiltshire, Danny Wilkinson, Andrew Thomas and Bert De Waele, all from Perth, and Barry Cullen and Darren Brooks, both from Exmouth and, from Mole Creek Caving Club in Tasmania, Jessica Bertels, headed north to discover and explore as many caves as they possibly could in the two weeks of the trip.  Not to be left out, a trip was made to the iconic Tunnel Creek where the crew enjoyed the delights of KO-1, The Tunnel.  The team mapped eleven smallish caves during the trip and explored a great deal of the area hoping to find a large cave system.  As is usual with these trips the best find was on the second last day when we discovered a nice shaft of 20 m depth but without time to explore it.  The final day was taken up with last minute surveying by a couple of teams and the remainder decided to explore the large and pretty Ballgown/Firemans Pole system

Danny Wilkinson created the video below on the trip back.  It shows some of the beauty and ruggedness (also good piloting/photographic skills)
