Broome people have a friendly rivalry with Derby people for many reasons. They think we stole their Boab trees and they have established an imaginary boundary just west of the Fitzroy River. According to them, anything south-west of that boundary is in the Pilbara. They’re funny that Derby mob! Australia is renowned for great rivalries.

The young woman was talking about when their whale watching tours started but I enjoyed imagining all the whales arriving on the same day.
