About The Kimberley
Located on the northern-most part of Western Australia and covering some 421,451 square kilometres (approximately 261,000 miles), an area three times the size of England and three fifths the size of Texas, the Kimberley is home to only 40,000 people meaning that there are fewer people per kilometre than almost any other place on the planet.
Remote and rugged, the Kimberley landscape is truly spectacular. With wide horizons, ancient gorges, picture-book rock pools and pristine beaches, the Kimberley is a special place that will linger in your mind long after you have left.
Kimberley, a truely unique experience
One of the most unusual sights in the Kimberley is the Horizontal ‘two-way’ waterfall of Talbot Bay in the Buchaneer Archipelago. Take a trip into Purnululu National Park where you will marvel at the thousands of huge beehive-shaped mounds of the Bungle Bungle. Striped in orange and black colours, these sandstone mounds rise majestically from the red earth and are one of Western Australia’s most significant natural features.
Cruise the waters of the mighty Fitzroy River. See where it has cut deep into the landscape producing the wonderful Geikie Gorge that is bordered by sheer walls of yellow, orange and grey.
On the coast is the township of Broome, a tranquil tropical spot, world famous for its pearling industry. Relax and unwind on the soft clean sands of Cable Beach, swim in clear turquoise waters. The beach extends 24 kilometres (15 miles) so you can choose a different spot every day and never get tired of the view.
Travel further north along the remote and pristine Kimberley coastline and you will find the Buccaneer Archipelago or ‘Thousand Islands’. Rugged red cliffs, cooling waters and white sandy beaches abound.
The Buccaneer Archipelago is situated 50-100 kilometres North-West of Derby and accessible by a 35 minute light aircraft flight to Cockatoo Island or a boat cruise from Derby.
Other attractions in the Kimberley region include the town of Derby, the Gibb River Road, Devonian Reef National Park, Fitzroy Crossing, Halls Creek and Wolfe Creek Meteorite Crater.
