Camping and Glamping

Camping and Glamping in the Kimberley

The closest you can get to a true wilderness experience and a reconnection with nature.

 

Zip open your tent and watch the changing colours as the morning sun hits the unique Bungle Bungle Range in World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park. Step from your camp bed and hike to the spectacular tiered Mitchell Falls, looking for ancient rock art along the way. Sit in the shade of your rustic beach shelter on the Dampier Peninsula, watching humpback whales breach in the turquoise waters. Lie in your swag, or your own private bathtub, under a sky filled with more stars than you’ve ever seen. Wake to the sound of pearl farmers preparing their boats, or a chorus of birdsong floating from the bushland.

There are camping and glamping experiences to be found in almost every kind of spectacular wilderness location in the Kimberley. From basic swags for the most seasoned camper, to beach shelters, to en-suite safari tents will all meals catered for those seeking a touch of luxury. You even have the freedom to go self-guided, or to join an organised 4WD tour with a local expert guide.

How to get there
Broome and Kununurra are serviced by domestic flights and operate as gateways to the greater Kimberley region.

Vehicle hire and tours

Car and camper van hire companies are located in Broome, while Kununurra offers car hire only. A number of 4WD tour operators also give you the option to let someone else do the driving while you enjoy the scenery.

 

Road conditions

Road conditions in the Kimberley vary from bitumen to natural rocky trails and red earth, so it’s vital that your vehicle is suitable for your itinerary. A high clearance 4WD may be necessary, and it’s not recommended to tow caravans, trailers or boats in certain areas. Check road conditions with the local visitor centre or shire before travel. 

 

Best time to travel

The peak months for travel in the Kimberley are during the cooler months between May and October, when it’s possible to gain road access to some of the more remote locations.
