The Kimberley

One of wildest, most beautiful and remote regions in the world, The Kimberley is one of the last great wilderness areas and covers more than 420,000 square kilometres. Home to only 25,000 people it is three times the size in area of England with vast horizons, ancient gorges, picture-perfect rock pools and pristine beaches.

There's a surprise around every corner in The Kimberley - cool waterholes, pockets of tropical rainforest and cascading waterfalls. You'll also discover ancient Aboriginal artworks that remain etched into the canvas of the land. The Kimberley's tropical monsoon climate keeps the rainforests lush with the wet season from November to April giving the region 90% of its annual rainfall. The dry season, from May to October, brings sunny days and cooler nights with south easterly breezes.

The iconic Bungle Bungle Range in Purnululu National Park is south of Kununurra and is one of the most unique geological formations in Western Australia. Clearly visible as you approach from the south, beehive like mounds are encased in a film of silica and algae striped in orange and black. Further over the range, a sheltered realm of pools and gorges reveals itself, shrouded in fan palms cleaving precariously to the crevices and walls of the rocks. A magical place steeped in ancient culture, The Kimberley will linger in your memory long after your visit.
