Natural History

At 2,000 million years old, the rock formations of the North West are some of the oldest on earth. Turbulent events, from volcanic eruptions to ice ages, have created incredible ranges, gorges and caves.

Dinosaur Footprints

120 million years ago dinosaurs roamed the Kimberley coast, today all that remains are amazing fossilised footprints. Along Broome’s Gantheaume Point and to Prices Point on the Dampier Peninsula the tracks of up to seven different dinosaur species, including sauropods, ornithopods and stegosaurus, have been verified.
