Here is the North West

Embark on one of the most awe-inspiring wilderness adventures on the planet and discover what billions of years of rock formations have left behind in the stunning natural landscapes of The Kimberley.

With breath-taking beauty at every turn, this fascinating region offers plenty of ways to uncover its best-kept secrets – from an Aboriginal walking tour through the World Heritage-listed Purnululu National Park, home to the Bungle Bungles’ dramatic sandstone karsts, to an iconic sunset camel ride along Cable Beach in tropical Broome / Rubibi, or a scenic flight over the turquoise tidal waters of the mighty Horizontal Falls.

Step away from everyday life and head off the beaten track. Descend into Karijini National Park's cavernous gorges and crystal-clear waterways, then end each exhilarating day under a star-studded sky at one of the quietly luxurious remote resorts on offer.

Some parts of the Kimberley have been affected by flooding and access is improving. Broome and Kununurra are open for visitors. For more information on the staged reopening of the Great Northern Highway and Fitzroy Crossing bridge please visit the Australia’s North West website.

In the Kimberley, 2024 is the year to make road trip dreams a reality as the new Fitzroy River Bridge over the Martuwarra River opens this month, more than six months ahead of schedule. Connecting the eastern part of the Kimberley to the west along the Great Northern Highway, this vitally important piece of infrastructure was destroyed less than 12 months ago during the catastrophic flooding from Ex-Tropical Cyclone Ellie. The opening of the bridge will allow visitors and tourism operators – as well as the local community and freight industry – to drive the dream in the Kimberley, one of the last true wilderness areas on Earth.
