Kimberley Region

Western Australia’s Kimberley is in the far north of the state and its enormous and rugged country has been inhabited by indigenous people for over 50,000 years. The climate is monsoonal and defines the landscape which is astonishly beautiful, rugged and romantic.

It covers an expanse of nearly 423,000 square kilometers (three times the size of England) with a population of only 32,000 people. Views from the air are spectacular and there aren’t many roads, so air access is imperative in this remote place.

Kununurra — an Aboriginal word meaning “big waters” — has a population of about 7000 and is roughly halfway between Broome and Darwin, in Western Australia’s northwest. It is the service centre for the east Kimberley region’s economic drivers: agriculture, mining and tourism.
Kununurra was established in 1960 as the centre for the Ord River Irrigation project. Situated on the edge of Lake Kununurra, the views are spectacular, with the Car Boyd Range bordering the Ord Valley to the south and the thousands of acres of irrigated farmland stretching north.
Kununurra is just over 50 years old, with the second generation of pioneer families now starting their own families, building history every day. The diverse industry mix and young demographic make for an exciting place to live , work and visit.

IF we allow ourselves to use the vernacular of its landscape — big, wide and sweeping — we can arrive at the proposition that Kununurra defines Australia.

  • This is #MitchellFalls during the wet season of 2008! With a lot of rain in the Kimberley over the last couple of days and a few cyclones passing by, I wonder if it will get this big in 2018...
  • A majestic wild river in the far north #thekimberleyaustralia  The Prince Regent River. Absolutely incredibly stunning landscapes here.
  • Dampier  port near #Karratha. Stunning colours and clear blue water filled with marine life.
  • Walking into #mirimiri at #elquestro with @ellamarais Now this would be an amazing Xmas gift! A voucher for a helipicnic.
  • A fuel stop on the way to the #berkeleyriverlodge  Being remote has its challenges and the logistics of operating a safe helicopter service take some experience and lots of local knowledge. We have plenty of both! We have drum fuel located at strategic points to allow us to traverse @thekimberleyaustralia safely whilst delivering your expectations.
  • Wow wow wow! How awesome is this shot by @landibradshawphotography !! 📷 “With temperatures well over 40 degrees and very high humidity over the last few days, it usually means there is some good build up activity on the way. Watching this angry #storm roll in was insane! The storm moved in fast and where the light from the #sunset shone through was a sheer wall of rain that lit up bright orange. Followed by this mammoth bolt striking the river right in front! The whole time it was moving through there was constant #lightning striking the horizon and the water, along with angry #thunder rumbling each time. So so so so good!!” - Landi
