At a Glance

The incredible far north Kimberley coastal region is home to the wunambal gaambera people, and not to be missed on your Kimberley adventure! It Is world class, pristine wilderness that you must see to believe, with incredible rock art all along the coast, and a thriving marine ecosystem like you would not believe. Fly in from Broome or Kununurra for the adventure of a lifetime. Three times larger than England and with a population of less than 40,000, the Kimberley region – spread over Australia's entire north-western corner – is one of the world's last wilderness frontiers. Here you'll find prolific wildlife, majestic canyons, freshwater swimming holes and several outback stations, as well as one of Australia's greatest 4WD road trips. Despite the area's remoteness, it's also a place of great food, luxury accommodation, friendly locals and one of the most romantic beach towns on Earth. Much of the Kimberley is inaccessible by conventional transport and a guided trip with traditional owners is considered essential to explore, as it will take you to places you could otherwise never reach and provide the genuine outback experience.  

When to visit

The Kimberley is very much a seasonal destination, with much of the land closed for access before about April, due to heavy rains. During this wet season, many attractions are also closed. Peak visitation time is mid-winter from about June to August.
