The Kimberley

A Kimberley holiday offers some of Western Australia’s most unique wilderness experiences – experiences that will capture your imagination.

Covering nearly 423,000 square kilometres, this ancient region has fewer people per square kilometre than almost any other place on Earth.

Hidden in the region’s heart, remarkable landscapes, spectacular gorges and thundering waterfalls provide the perfect backdrop for a Kimberley holiday adventure in Western Australia’s north. And on its coast lie some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, untouched coral atolls and rugged islands with an amazing variety of marine life.

Coastal and outback towns of the Kimberley region offer vastly diverse experiences. Visit Kununurra and Derby, the eastern and western gateways to the Kimberley. And stop by at the rugged pioneering towns of WyndhamFitzroy Crossing and Halls Creek.

Wilderness adventures can be found in every corner of the region. Your Kimberley holiday could take you to Western Australia’s World Heritage listed Purnululu National Park, featuring the famous beehive-shaped Bungle Bungles. Or you could find yourself in the magnificent Mitchell River National Park and the beautiful waterways of Danggu Geike Gorge National Park.

You can follow ancient cave systems at Dimalurru (Tunnel Creek) National Park. Walk through the spectacular Bandilngan (Windjana Gorge). Cruise the vast inland sea of Lake Argyle. Or explore one of the world’s largest meteorite craters at Wolfe Creek Crater National Park.

While Broome’s Cable Beach is classed as one of the world’s best beaches, there are also many world-class attractions to be found just off the coast in the Kimberley region. On a snorkel or dive tour of Rowley Shoals Marine Park you can swim with over 650 species of fish. And Kimberley cruises to the Buccaneer Archipelago, give you the chance to witness amazing tidal movements at the Horizontal Falls. Extended cruises can take you to places precious few have been privileged to see.
