A remote region in the far north of Western Australia, the Kimberley is one of the world’s oldest and largest wilderness landscapes. Often referred to as Australia's last frontier, the Kimberley boasts some of the most remarkable natural attractions. From rugged ranges, outback deserts and inland gorges to lush waterfalls, freshwater swimming holes, incredible beaches, and islands, all filled with amazing wildlife, unique to the area.
The Kimberley is a place for those with a spirit of adventure, who want to learn about our rich Indigenous and colonial history, be inspired by the breathtaking scenery and connect with nature. Aboriginal people arrived in the Kimberley some 65,000 years ago and today you can visit their ancient rock art and carvings, take a cultural tour, or be inspired by their amazing art in galleries throughout the region.
Despite being such a remote area, The Kimberley is bursting with life. Its towns are filled with friendly locals, great food, and plenty of places to whet your whistle! The Kimberley is also abundant with plants, animals, marine life, and birds – a real nature-lovers paradise.
The hardest part about planning a Kimberley holiday is not where to visit, but what to leave out. It’s all quite stunning! A Kimberley adventure will take you to some of the most remarkable and diverse places you will ever see.
Some of the towns in the Kimberley are wonderful tourist destinations such as Kununurra, Derby, Wyndham, Halls Creek and Fitzroy Crossing and most are situated a short drive (or scenic flight) away from some amazing natural wonders. Broome’s Cable Beach and its famous sunset camel ride is a must-do as are the Horizontal Falls at the Buccaneer Archipelago, a flight over Lake Argyle and a cruise up the mighty Ord River.
Locals like to claim that Kimberley has some of the best of the best! The best diamonds, the best pearls, the best fishing spots, the best beaches, and some of Australia's best-known indigenous artists.

The Kimberley is one of the world's most precious wilderness regions. Spanning over 400,000 square kilometres, it’s three times larger than England and twice the size of Victoria. With a population of less than 40,000, it has fewer inhabitants per square kilometre than any other place on Earth!
There are many National Parks in The Kimberley. Take to the meandering waterways of the Danggu Geikie Gorge National Park, explore one of the world’s largest meteorite craters at Wolfe Creek Crater National Park, or gaze in wonder at the sheer rock face at Windjana Gorge National Park.
UNESCO World Heritage-listed Purnululu National Park is home to the spectacular Bungle Bungle Range with its beehive-shaped sandstone structures and a scenic flight over these ancient structures is a truly jaw-dropping experience.
The best time to visit the Kimberley region is during the dry season, which runs from April to September. This period offers pleasant weather, warm days, and cool nights, making it ideal for outdoor activities and exploration. Waterfalls are most impressive early in the dry season, and most tourist attractions are fully operational. The wet season from October to March brings heavy rainfall, lush landscapes, and active plant and animal life, but road access may be limited. Shoulder seasons in April and October provide a balance between the two main seasons, allowing for fewer crowds and comfortable temperatures.
