Welcome to Kimberley Region

Kimberley Region

The Kimberley is one of the nine regions of Western Australia and is home to huge wilderness sanctuaries, spectacular gorges, thundering waterfalls and the incredible Bungle Bungles.  Kununurra is the gateway to the outback experience of the Kimberley and an ideal base to explore this fascinating region.

The Kimberley has a tropical monsoon climate and receives about 90% of its rainfall during the wet season, which lasts from November to April.  Cyclones can be common particularly around Broome and the rivers can flood. The Kimberley is also the hottest part in Australia. The Horizontal Falls are a natural phenomenon in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Some of the more popular things to do in the The Kimberley include exploring the Bungle Bungle Range,  taking a boat trip along the Ord River to witness amazing bird life such as the billed cuckoo, going horseriding, cattle mustering, bushwalking, boating, fishing , four wheel driving and almost anything else you can think of at El Questro Wilderness Park.

Another breathtaking site is the Geikie Gorge, bordered by sheer yellow, orange and grey rock walls, which have been shaped by the waters of the Fitzroy River. The main coastal town is Broome, famous for its pearling industry. Visitors can relax on the soft sands of Cable Beach, which extends for 15 miles (24km) and swim in clear turquoise waters. Further north along the coastline there are more attractive white sandy beaches at the Buccaneer Archipelago.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) is divided into 100 cents. Banks and bureaux de change exchange most foreign currencies. Travellers cheques are also welcome everywhere, but banks take a small commission and it is better to take cheques in major currencies (e.g. US dollars or Euros) to avoid additional charges. Credit cards are widely accepted and ATMs are freely available throughout the country. Banking hours are generally 9.30am to 4pm Monday to Thursday, and 9.30am to 5pm on Friday, but some banks offer extended hours and some are open on Saturday mornings.
