The Western Australia Kimberley Region
A Travel Guide To Australia’s Last True Wilderness
This Kimberley Travel Guide takes you through one of the remotest, wildest and most beautiful regions on earth.
For me the Kimberleys in Western Australia were love at first sight, and a good enough reason to move here permanently.
That’s right, the Kimberly Australia Travel Guide is written and maintained by a resident of the region, not by some tourism business.
That’s why it covers a lot more than the usual tourist attractions.
This Kimberley Travel Guide is an inside look at the Kimberley. It’s like a trip with a local.
The guide contains practical advice for people planning a trip, detailed descriptions of popular drives, of national parks and hikes. It tells you about all the gorges and waterfalls and beaches, including and especially the ones that you won’t find mentioned elsewhere.
So come on a drive.
- . from Broome to Kununurra on the Great Northern Highway, visiting the Bungle Bungles, Wolfe Creek, Tunnel Creek and more national parks.
- . from Wyndham to Derby along the infamous Gibb River Road, a Kimberley adventure tour right through the heart of the region.
- . to my favourite waterfalls (and let me know which is your favourite).
- . and one of the world’s top 5 beaches.
Mind you, I prefer this one any day and there are even better ones. I will take you to waterfalls and beach hideaways, rock pools and fishing spots, all the secret places that we don’t usually tell the tourists about!
You can read about the weather and the seasons, the flora and the wildlife, the culture and the geology.
. about must-haves, must-dos, and must-nots, all you need to know to enjoy this adventure of a lifetime.
The natural beauty of this region will take your breath away. It is hard to put into words, which is why you will find so many pictures on this site.
Now, this website has several hundred pages and in the beginning it can be a bit overwhelming. That’s why I have also created a FREE Kimberley Travel Guidebook to get you started. It tells you everything you need to know to plan a trip across the Kimberley. You can get access to it by subscribing to this site (for free of course) through the box below.
It’s my thank you for your interest in my site and in the beautiful part of the world that I live in.

The advice and the stories you find on this site are for real. It’s a Travel Guide written and maintained by someone who lives here. I arrived in the Kimberley in 1994 as an overseas traveller myself, fell hopelessly in love with the region, and stayed.
. and I would love to show you why!
Welcome to “my backyard” and enjoy your stay!
I hope you will love it here as much as I do.

Does Broome in Western Australia live up to the promises of the travel industry? The opinions on Broome are divided.
In the local Aboriginal language Kununurra means Meeting Of The Big Waters. An appropriate name indeed, as water is the most noticeable feature of this region.
