Sunrise no. 4 - Kalumburu mission, WA
This was sunrise on my last day in Kalumburu,as I was flying out later that morning. Kalumburu is an Aboriginal mission community on the north Kimberley coast in Western Australia, and was founded by Spanish Benedictine monks at the end of the 19th century. The original mission buildings were built right on the coast and weredestroyed by bombing in WW2. The monks then rebuilt a little further inland where there was already a small community. This is one of the original mission buildings, in the new location. It is a very beautiful and sturdy building, as it has to withstand the yearly cyclone season.
