Kimberley Region travel guide

4.4
Beaches · Nature & Wildlife Tours · Geologic Formations
Three times larger than England, with a population of less than 40,000, the Kimberley region – spread over Australia's entire north-western corner – is one of the world's last wilderness frontiers. Here you'll find prolific wildlife, majestic canyons, freshwater swimming holes and several outback stations, as well as one of Australia's greatest 4WD road trips. Despite the area's remoteness, it's also a place of great food, luxury accommodation, friendly locals and one of the most romantic beach towns on Earth. The Kimberley region's major gateway is the outback beach town of Broome, famous for its 22 kilometre (14 mile) long strip of white sand, Cable Beach, and the daily camel trains that trail along it at sunset.
