Western Australia’s famous Kimberley region is the jewel in the crown of a state rich in amazing landscapes. It’s a vast, sparsely populated land….imagine three times the size of England and only forty thousand people.
Broome or Kununurra are both gateways to the area. From here you can follow the the Gibb River Road or explore the coast by boat… Two very different trips exploring one incredible land.
Massive gorges cut into the land, rivers that range from trickles to floods depending on the season create spectacular waterfalls and rock pools where you can swim well away from the lurking, prehistoric looking crocodiles. Aboriginal rock art decorates rock faces on the most obscure places. Don’t forget the fishing. Here you can fish to your hearts content though catching a barramundi may take a while…they love to jump off that hook!
I hope you enjoy these postcards from the Kimberleys……
