Tom Curtain

Where The Pindan Meets The Ocean

from the Territory Time album.

WHERE THE PINDAN MEETS THE OCEAN is a true story about a lady who owns and operates a cattle station in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia. With two young kids, a house she built herself from mudbricks and a small herd of cattle, Janice Bell of Barnhill Station saw an opportunity to diversify and build a caravan park on the red pindan soils overlooking the majestic Indian Ocean.

The song depicts her courage and determination to overcome the hardships of isolation, raising a young family, running a cattle station, limited power, water or phone service, and building a caravan park, which today is one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in the Kimberley Region.
