This Fascinating Frontier

Covering an expanse of around 423,000 square kilometres, The Kimberley region of Western Australia is a remote and sparsely populated land that is rich in culture and history. Its rare wilderness, unique attractions and spectacular scenery create an extraordinary backdrop to an amazing adventure.

Check your ‘astonishing things to see’ bucket list and it should be there.

Sparse, vast and remote

World Heritage Listed Purnululu National Park covers around 240,000 hectares roughly 300 kilometres south of Kununurra. The Bungle Bungle range is made of sedimentary sandstone conglomerate, which has eroded over some 20 million years to form its famous beehive-shaped towers and distinct colour banding.

You’ll find a lot of information on the Kimberley but nothing that comes close to immersing yourself in it. “We’ll be back” is something we hear a lot.

Fast facts:

  • The Kimberley is twice the size of the Australian state of Victoria and roughly the same size as California
  • Its main towns are Kununurra and Wyndham in the north, and Derby and Broome in the south. Halls Creek and Fitzroy Crossing are inland on the Great Northern Highway, which is the only sealed road between Perth and the Kimberley
  • Key industries in the Kimberley include mining, tourism, agriculture and aquaculture, pearling, and Indigenous art
  • The Kimberley has two seasons, the Dry and the Wet. It is hot most of the year with average temperatures generally above 30°C. During the wet, monsoonal rains inundate the region, replenishing its rivers
  • Most of the Kimberley’s significant rock art is within a kilometre of water
