The last frontier of Australia is a wild land of remote and spectacular landscapes that extend over great distances, with a severe climate, a dispersed population, and minimal infrastructure. More than 75% of the countries in the world, Kimberley is surrounded by an impenetrable coastline and relentless deserts. Travelling here is a true adventure, and in each dry season, a steady stream of explorers search for the true interior along the legendary Gibb River Road.
The most famous monument of Western Australia offers turquoise waters and beautiful white sands that moves away from the sunset. Clothing is optional north of the rocks, while in the south, walking paths lead through the red dunes of Minyirr Park, a spiritual place for the Yawuru people. Cable Beach is synonymous with camels, and a night walk through the sand is a highlight for many visitors.
A World Heritage Site, Purnululu is home to the amazing ocher and black striped 'beehive' domes of the Bungle Bungle Range. The distinctively rounded rock towers are made of sandstone and conglomerates moulded by rain for millions of years. Their stripes are the result of oxidized iron compounds and algae. More than 3000 square kilometres of an ancient country contains a wide variety of wildlife, including more than 130 species of birds. You will need a high clearance 4WD for the 52 km winding road from the highway to the visitor centre near the three ways junction.
James Price Point
The striking red cliffs of Walmadan are worth a visit, even if you are not camping; they are 35 km from Cape Leveque Rd. The Bush camps are located on the cliff that overlooks the impressive cliffs and the fascinating Indian Ocean.
Mitchell River National Park
Leave early if you walk to Punamii-unpuu. The easy path meanders through spinifex, forests,and streams, dotted with sites of rock art from Wandjina and GwionGwion, isolated waterholes, lizards, kangaroos and andbrolga. The water well below Little Mertens Falls is especially attractive, while rock art can be found above the falls. The falls are impressive, whether dripping in Dry or raging in the Wet.
