Did you know the Kimberley has a tropical monsoon climate, with a dry season and a wet season?

An ancient land

The oldest rocks in Western Australia's Kimberley region formed more than 2 billion years ago. The region has spectacular mountain ranges, gorges with towering cliffs and waterfalls.

The Kimberley coastline includes large bays and peninsulas, sandy beaches, mangrove forests, coral reefs, and thousands of islands. It attracts tourists from across Australia and the world.
