More than 1,000 tiny islands make up the Buccaneer Archipelago, a cruising and fishing paradise which lays North West of the Kimberley town of Derby.

This untouched region of Western Australia is also home to patches of rainforest, secluded beaches and a fringe of mangroves - all set in a bright turquoise tropical sea.

Horizontal Waterfall in Talbot Bay is one of the best known attractions in the area and a scenic flight will give you the best view.

Joining a Kimberley cruise gets you up close to the landscape. You'll see ancient rock art and massive tides that race up tidal creeks, while the fishing is out of this world.

Sea safaris, cruises, flights and other tours to the Buccaneer Archipelago can be arranged from Broome.
