Is the Kimberley worth the trip up north? Australia’s Wild Wild West – Exploring on a Kimberley Adventure Tour
Broome – WA’s most northerly town – sets the scene for your Kimberley Adventure tour. Famous for its endless Cable Beach, crimson sunsets and camel rides, setting off from the pearl fishing town you’ll soon be in amongst the depths of Australia’s north west wilderness.
Gibb River Road
The Gibb River Road is your main artery transporting you through the Kimberley Region. Running for an immense 660km, there’s plenty to see along the way before reaching the NT. It’s worth bearing in mind, however, that the Gibb River Road is closed during the wet season (November – March) so the Kimberley is best explored from April – October. From gorges to mountains, creeks, and ancient landmarks there is much to see in this remote part of Australia.
The Bungle Bungles
Officially undiscovered until 1983, The Bungle Bungles were not seen by the outside world until an unwitting film crew stumbled upon the colossal rock formation domes whilst flying over the Purnululu National Park. Of course, the Bungle Bungles were known to the traditional landowners for millennia before then. Australia’s Wild Wild West – Exploring on a Kimberley Adventure Tour.
