One of the world's last unspoilt regions, this time-worn land shelters great beauty in its rugged isolation.
Pristine beaches fringe the Indian Ocean and through the wet season, from November to April, mighty rivers burst to life, thundering in waterfalls and feeding pockets of lush rainforest among the arid desert, vast open plains, complex cave systems and ancient boab trees.
The bird and wildlife here is astonishing and the local people are friendly, unpretentious and proud of their history.
Exploring the Kimberley
Broome, Derby and Kununurra are the main gateways, but outside of these areas the experience of the remote Outback is more important than the accommodation, where your choices are limited.
Most roads in this area are unsealed and require a 4WD vehicle, so to explore the area you’ll have to choose between traveling alone, linking up with a small convoy of vehicles led by an experienced guide or joining a small group guided tour.
Our specialists will be able to advise which will best suit your interests, itinerary and experience.
