But with the introduction of the National Highway,
the Kimberleys was on the tourist map, tempting travellers
to venture further from the beach mecca of Broome for
the first time. Those that do are treated to
breathtaking scenery dotted by hospitable and
tourist-geared township's, combining to create one of
the most rewarding travel experiences you'll find
anywhere in the Outback of Kimberleys Australia.
Kimberleys Australia at 300,000 square kilometres is
over three times the size of England. Its ancient and
complex geology presents a landscape of spectacular
gorges, waterfalls and the intriguing domes of the
famous Bungle Bungles.
The Kimberleys flora including eucalyptus, acacia,
grevillea and pandanus species is typical of Australia's
Tropical Savannahs but its outstanding flora are the
Mitchell Plateau's vast stands of fan palms and the
magnificent boab trees which are unique to the region.
Wildlife is not conspicuous in this landscape mainly due
to its rugged form and the fact that most of the
wildlife rests in the shade during the hot days.
Nevertheless the region is home to Freshwater and
Saltwater (Estuarine) crocodiles. Mammals are most
frequently represented by Agile Wallabies and Antilopine
Birds are abundant with the rare and endangered
Purple-crowned Fairy-wren one of its prizes. Indigenous
culture and history is recorded in ancient and
distinctive "Wanjina" rock art and mysterious Bradshaw
A wide range of accommodation to suit any budget
