The Kimberley Attractions
Holiday or travel in the Kimberley region offers some of Western Australia’s (WA) most unique wilderness experiences – experiences that will leave you astounded at the amazing landscape and natural beauty of this remote part of Australia. Covering nearly 423,000 square kilometres, this region has fewer people per square kilometre than almost any other place on Earth.
The Kimberley offers two distinct seasons – the ‘dry’, generally between April and October, and the ‘wet’ from November to March. At different times of year you will enjoy different attractions of the seasons. Wildlife is abundant all year round and there are spectacular gorges to been seen all over the place, but you may encounter tranquil waterholes or thundering waterfalls dependant on what month you travel. The Great Northern Highway between Broome and Kununurra, or the Gibb River Road between Derby and Wyndham, both provide access to some iconic attractions such as the Bungle Bungles, El Questro Station and the Mitchell Plateau. The Kimberley Coast is even more remote and harbors some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. There are also diving experiences at the Rowley Shoals, extended cruises from Broome to Wyndham and remote coastal retreats and fishing camps that offer holiday activities.
Plan your Kimberley travel well in advance and research what month is going to be best for you. The Kimberley Accommodation properties are open year round and we recommend you add at least an extra day to what you originally planned; you won’t want to leave this beautiful area and there is so much more to see and do than you think!
