About Me

Luke is a seasoned adventurer from trecking camels in the remotes parts of australia to capturing crocodiles in the name of conservation....Luke has traversed Australia many times around on one adventure or another since he left sydney as a teenager. On one such adventure he met the Goolarabooloo community and since then every expedition has ended at the Goolarabooloo community block. Including the time he trekked with a string of wild camels half way across australia and across two deserts. While in Broome Luke became close friends with the late Malcolm Douglas who had an affinity to him as they were somewhat kindred spirits. They worked together for six years travelling to the remotest parts of the Kimberley to film his last film together 'The Wild and Dangerous Kimberley Coast'. Now days Luke has joined up with his wife to form a production company that film, edit and produce many short films and documentaries. Currently they are in the final post prodution stages of their cultural documentary called 'Lurujarri" filmed in conjunction with Goolarabooloo.

LURUJARRI- is an Indigenous cultural film that was filmed with the Goolarabooloo family who live just north of Broome, Western Australia over the last 4 years. Their story dates back 40,000 years. Their dinosaur ancestors left footprints behind and created their Law which is still practised today. Their dreamtime stories (Bugarregara) begin with the story of creation of man. Broome is the birthplace in their beliefs and their stories travel along the Dampier Peninsular as a song-line. This family takes you along a spiritual path that was opened to us all by their late grandfather Paddy Roe who believed that to protect this country for the future we had to share it, all of us, together, black & white. The family run an annual event to walk the Lurujarri Heritage Trail which is led by Richard Hunter and Frans Hoogland. Phillip Roe allows us to witness sacred artefacts and a corroberee. A must see film for anyone interested in Aboriginal culture and heritage.
