Monthly Lecture

The Kimberley coast

Dr Sandy Scott

Following the hugely popular lecture on Kimberley rock art in March, Sandy will take us on a journey to the Kimberley coast.

Dr Alexander (Sandy) Scott describes himself as an educator, naturalist field guide and traveller. Much of the expertise and skills he uses in the field and in his writing arise from his teacher training in Agricultural Science and while attaining his BA, M Litt and Ph D from the University of New England, Armidale, New South Wales.

Stemming from his research in plant ecology and strong interests in geomorphology, history and travel, he is able to use his knowledge to help people interpret the landscapes through which they travel. As well as traversing most regions of Australia his travels extend through Asia, Europe, the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Visiting the Kimberley coast was added to his Australian travel destinations in the late 1990s and he has been fortunate to work as a guest lecturer with Coral Expeditions at least twice each year since then. These visits and interaction with his fellow travellers promoted the writing of his first book in 2012 ‘A Travellers Guide to the Kimberley Coast’ which concentrated mainly on the coastal landforms and their origins. In 2018 he broadened the scope in his second book on the same region to also include aspects of biodiversity and human history.
