The Kimberley is larger than many countries, culturally and environmentally unique and intact, naturally and economically gifted but undeveloped, sparsely populated but close to the rapidly developing and growing population centres of Asia; the Kimberley is a region of enormous potential, importance and promise, even on a global scale.

The Kimberley region has an increasingly diverse regional economy, with opportunities in many industries including; mining, construction, tourism, retail, agriculture, and rangelands. There are also challenges to the growth of the Kimberley including housing, health and well being; and education and training.

A range of statistics are available within this section of the website. Our publication Kimberley Economic Snapshot also contains a broad range of information regarding the economic activity of the Kimberley. Under our Economic Profile section, we present and analyse a number of Kimberley statistics, divided into the topics listed below:

Additionally, REMPLAN makes available a Kimberley Region Community Profile and a Kimberley Region Economic Profile.
