The remote proximity and isolation of the Kimberley only adds to the complex beauty of its landscape, which occupies almost 17% of Western Australia and covers an area of 421,000 square kilometres. One of Australia’s last frontiers, The Kimberley is a land of remote and spectacular scenery made up of a huge central plateau of dissected sandstone ranges and an extensive limestone range, formed from an ancient barrier reef.
A rugged coastline of steep-sided tidal gulfs drops into mangrove-fringed estuaries and in between lies large swaths of wilderness, unforgiving deserts and lush grassland. Its idiosyncratic nature and extreme conditions only add to its draw. A truly unique and magical location that must be explored and experienced to be believed.Kimberley Top 20 Birds
