This is the type of stuff outback dreams are made of and many people say you have not been to Australia if you haven’t been to the Kimberleys. This is one of the most sparsely populated areas on earth and everything here is rare and remote, from the ancient rock formations, the history of the Aboriginal people and the vast cattle stations which have been featured in many epic movies.
Considered a very intrinsic part of the East Kimberley community, the aboriginal culture of today is acknowledged through the various Aboriginal tourism operators, tourism partnerships and business ventures throughout the region. The area around Kununurra has so much to offer and chances are you won’t have time to see it all. Whether you want to hike to a fantastic view point of the town or chill out in a remote natural waterhole, or even try some famous Ord River Rum, there really is something for everyone! And don’t miss to visit some of the beautiful art galleries and some aboriginal festivals which might be on right when you are visiting.
Taking off from Kununurra are some of the many scenic flights above cascading waterfalls and Mitchell Gorge. This is an ideal way to get an idea of this vast landscape before you start your 4WD adventure down the Gibb River Road. Swim in deep waterholes and spend the night gazing at the brightest stars anywhere in the world. Hike through canyons and discover rock formations and rock art left by the aboriginal people to tell you their story.
See freshwater crocodiles in the Windjana Gorge National Park and swim, bushwalk and camp at one of the many beautiful gorges.
