Today, more than 30 Aboriginal tribes remain in the Kimberley region, each with its own language and many with unique cultural practices. Their spiritual beliefs and way of life used to be closely bound to the land, sea and sky. Their monuments and places of worship were the hills, rivers and plains surrounding them.
The Kimberley is covered in a network of Dreaming tracks; the Dreaming is the foundation of Indigenous culture and spiritual beliefs. The ancestral Dreaming spirits, who could change their form into animals, people or any physical feature, travelled across the country shaping the natural environment and establishing the religious and moral systems for Indigenous Australians.
The Kimberley is also home to many nationally and internationally acclaimed artists, and there are plenty of Indigenous art galleries and Indigenous art centres throughout the region showcasing their work.
