Luxury, Boutique and Romantic Accommodation in the Kimberley
Awe-inspiring scenery and boutique accommodation in the Kimberley
The Kimberley occupies an iconic space in the Australian imagination: somewhere over the horizon where the immensity of nature rules and humans are dwarfed by the grandeur of the landscape. In this part of Western Australia the icon becomes reality with all the wild beauty and spectacular sights that it involves.
Quite simply, there is no place like the Kimberley. Sitting within the far north-west corner of Australia, the Kimberley is a destination that refuses to be pigeon-holed. Expect remote coastal camps and pristine atolls alongside desolate deserts, isolated outback towns and a landscape so unique it could only be Australian.
Begin your discovery of the Kimberley at Dampier Peninsula, an area made up of small Indigenous communities and accessible only by partially unsealed road. Wander the beaches, snorkel the too-blue waters or charter a fishing boat before making tracks inland. From Tunnel Creek National Park’s ancient cave systems and the beehive-shaped Bungle Bungles at Purnululu National Park to meteorite craters at Wolfe Creek Crater National Park’s meteorite craters, you’ll never run out of things to gawk at. For the ultimate sightseeing road trip, tackle the 600-kilometre Gibb River Road (or at least a section of it). This formidable route takes you past deep-cut gorges, cascading waterfalls, working stations and historic homesteads.
Broome, Australia's pearling capital, is also a popular way to kickstart exploration of the Kimberley. From your Broome accommodation, travellers experience a switch-up of scenery; from white-sand beaches and azure waters to savannah lands and craggy outcrops. But don’t just drive off into the wild blue yonder hoping to find something special… the Kimberley too big for that.
There are many tour companies, accommodation hosts and guides who appreciate their region’s extraordinary flora, fauna and ancient Aboriginal rock art. Seek them out and learn how to reach the Kimberley’s natural wonders, whether it be by 4WD, canoe, light plane or helicopter. And don’t just slip into your luxury tent or four-poster station bed at night without standing awe-struck before the majestic night sky.
The remote interior and north of Western Australia is a treasure trove of both mineral wealth and stunning landscapes. It offers a range of activities, sights and sounds that can only be found in a land which has been continuously settled for more than fifty centuries.
