Eric Bedford (Wunan KWA Camp Guide) wowing the crowds at the Bungles Kimberley Wilderness Adventures Camp
27 June 2012
Dave Henderson & Merrilyn Spencer called in today to tell us how lucky we are to have Eric Bedford on board out at the Bungles. We already knew that but a little boasting never goes astray. This is what they had to say:
He’s just the most amazing man, we love his stories around the camp fire. Eric gets up every morning, does the washing, has breakfast with everyone, cleans the rooms by his own choice, he is a wonderful man.
Eric is a fantastic role model for the whole community and meeting Eric was the highlight of our stay at the Bungles. Eric brought together all of the guests in a way that no one else could. He shared his knowledge of Gija people and he was open about his experiences both good and bad in his life. Eric has a holistic approach to all people.
Eric was also the proud winner of the 2011 East Kimberley Aboriginal Achievement Award for Elder of the Year.
Thanks Eric for being who you are and doing what you do.
