About The Region
Fewer people than almost anywhere else
Covering an expanse of around 423,000 square kilometres, the Kimberley region of Western Australia is a remote and sparsely populated treasure-trove of Australian landscape and Indigenous culture. Its stunning scenery and spectacular natural attractions are a source of constant adventure.
Swap ordinary for extraordinary and head north into one of the planet’s last true wilderness destinations. Immerse yourself in the unique Australian outback, the colours and the crocodiles, in a bird watcher’s paradise.
The picturesque outback township of Kununurra, at the river’s edge, is a popular hub for visitors and an ideal departure point for tours.
You’ll find a lot of information on the Kimberley but nothing that comes close to the actual experience. One of the common things we hear people say is “we’ll be back”, there is so much to see and do. It is rumoured that once you taste the water from the Ord, you will indeed return.
