Welcome to The Kimberley

The Gibb (4WD, dry season only) provides access to the majestic Mitchell Falls, far-flung Kalumburu and the beautiful hidden gorges, eroded ranges and sweeping savanna of the Kimberley interior. The bitumen, all-weather GNH runs further south and connects the remote Kimberley towns of Fitzroy Crossing and Halls Creek. It's also the access route to the sublime Bungle Bungle Range of Purnululu National Park and the Devonian Reef National Park and is the jumping-off point for trips south into the sparsely populated Tanami.
