The Kimberley is Western Australia’s sparsely populated north-western region. Bordered by the Indian Ocean to the West, the Timor Sea to the north and the Great Sandy Desert to the East, it is known for large swaths of wilderness defined by rugged mountains, dramatic gorges, outback desert and isolated coastline. We followed the notoriously rough Gibb River Road, which runs 660km through the wild heart of the Kimberley, from Derby on the west coast to Kununurra in the North. We also followed the Kalumburu road across the remote Mitchell Plateau, over the King Edward River, to photograph Mitchell Falls. The Kimberley has a 40,000 year continuous history of human occupation and we were privileged to see many indigenous cave paintings. The Kimberley is vast – three times the size of Britain and typical farming properties are around 1 million acres each. The region is naturally rich in minerals and is constantly under threat from mining activity. Thankfully the Kimberley incorporates several National Parks such as Geikie Gorge, Mirima, Mitchell River, Purnululu, Tunnel Creek and Windjana Gorge. Special thanks to Matthew and the guys at Kimberley Safari Tours – just the best – we highly recommend them. We hope you enjoy our photographs of the Kimberley region: if you do please leave comments in the guest book at the bottom of the page.
