Bungle Bungles, World Heritage Area

Picture: Bungle Bungles, World Heritage Area

Often described as one of the world’s last great wildernesses, the Kimberley has an immense and complex landscape that encompasses spectacular gorges, waterfalls and cave systems, pockets of lush rainforest and an astonishing variety of wildlife.

Huge turtles, predatory fresh and saltwater crocodiles share this ancient land with Australia’s unique marsupial kangaroos and wallabies. Floral treasures abound including many coloured wildflowers, waterlilies, pandanus palms, fan palms and magnificent boab trees.

The Kimberley is a vast and pristine area that is an unforgettable adventure to explore. To truly appreciate the wonders of the Kimberley region, it is best to take some time, meet the people, absorb the history and take in the natural beauty.

The Kimberley comprises four local governments (further information on individual Shire websites):

Shire of Broome;

Shire of Derby West Kimberley;

Shire of Halls Creek; and

Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley.
