In this corner of Western Australia’s north, it’s easy to feel like you’ve got the place to yourself – with fewer people in the region per square kilometre than almost any place on Earth! Discover ancient landscapes, coral reefs, waterfalls and beautiful beaches, far away from the bustle of the everyday.
Swim with more than 650 species of fish at Rowley Shoals, which is made up of three coral atolls: Clerke Reef, Imperieuse Reef and Mermaid Reef. Dive and snorkel alongside sea turtles, manta rays, whales and dolphins, or fish in the waters surrounding the Rowley Shoals. The only way to travel to Rowley Shoals is by charter boat, so plan ahead for this one. Depart from Broome and stay three or four days to make the most of the marine parks.
The most northerly township in the Kimberley region is the last stop on your journey up the Great Northern Highway. Wyndham is just an hour and a half north of Lake Argyle. Built back in 1886, the town supported the goldfields in Halls Creek so there’s plenty of historic buildings and attractions to wander around. Explore nearby regions such as Kununurra where you can climb up to Kelly’s Knob Lookout for a spectacular view of the setting sun. Discover waterfalls and splash in a swimming hole all to yourself in the outback wilderness just outside of town. Take a snap with the ferocious croc at the Kimberley Croc Motel and send it back to your friends.
