The Kimberley region is located in the northern part of Western Australia, extending from Broome in the west to Kununurra and Lake Argyle in the east, from the sea to just south of the main Great Northern Highway (Route 1).
It covers about 421,000 square kilometres -- slightly larger than Japan and much larger than United Kingdom, New Zealand, or the Australian state of Victoria. It is bordered on the west by the Indian Ocean, on the north by the Timor Sea, on the south by the Great Sandy Desert, and on the east by the Northern Territory.
This ancient landscape features rugged ranges with spectacular gorges, mighty river systems, thundering waterfalls and vast plains. World renowned for our pristine sandy beaches, surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, the region is home to an astonishing variety of wildlife, birdlife and plant species that cannot be found anywhere else on the planet.
