About the North West

A visit to Australia's North West will take you through some of the world’s most amazing untouched wilderness areas, giving you a real Australian outback experience.

Covering over one million square kilometres (four times the size of the United Kingdom), North West Australia is split into two areas of breathtaking natural beauty, the Kimberley region and the Pilbara region. The ancient landscapes of these regions are a contrast of rugged ranges, stunning gorges, pristine sandy beaches and untouched islands and reefs. They’re also home to wildlife, birdlife and plant species you won’t find anywhere else on the planet.

Cultural experiences to suit all tastes and budgets can be found in the Kimberley region and the Pilbara region. Take an authentic Indigenous tour and learn about local Indigenous history and culture, hear Dreamtime stories and try bush tucker.

Stay at the exotic seaside town of Broome in the Kimberley region and sail on an old pearl lugger at sunset or ride a camel along Broome's beautiful Cable Beach. Visit Karratha, the gateway to the beautiful Karijini National Park, and Kununurra, the gateway to the Bungle Bungle Range in the Kimberley. Or travel through true outback towns on a four wheel drive tour of North West Australia.
