If you’re about to head off on a Kimberley tour, there’s so much to see in this stunning part of the world. The Kimberley region remains untouched and rugged, with an ancient past ready to be explored. Today, we’ll be sharing some of our favourite places for you to discover on your Kimberley tour for a holiday experience you’ll never forget.
1. Cable Beach
One of the most famous destinations in Broome, make sure you take the time to enjoy the beauty of Cable Beach. The pristine white sand of the beach stretches for 22 kilometres and combined with the stunning blue water, you’ll definitely want to have your camera with you. Unlike the crowded beaches in other parts of Australia, there is always a quiet spot where you can relax and enjoy the view. Don’t forget to enjoy one of the most memorable experiences Cable Beach can offer – a leisurely camel ride while you enjoy the spectacular sunset.
2. Windjana Gorge
Windjana Gorge is inaccessible during the wet season, but during the dry season you can explore the gorge and take in the towering walls which are up to 100 metres high in some spots. As you walk through, you’ll be able to see evidence of the ancient Devonian reef as ancient sea life has been fossilised in the walls of the gorge.
3. Bungle Bungle Range
As an iconic sight of the Kimberley region, make sure you head out to the Bungle Bungle range. Located in Purnululu National Park, the distinctive formations of the Bungle Bungle range are easy to spot. Rising 300 metres above the ground, the beehive shaped towers are made from sandstones and conglomerates. They have distinctive orange and grey stripes as the result of different layers of sandstone for a truly unique effect. Formed over millions of years, the Bungle Bungle ranges are truly an amazing sight.
4. Mitchell Falls
No visit to the Kimberley is complete without seeing the incredible Mitchell Falls, one of the most popular (and most photographed!) spots in the region. Featuring a stunning four tiers of waterfalls, you’ll witness the contrast between the rugged landscape and the fresh flowing water. Once you’ve climbed to the top of the falls, you can swim in one of the top pools. However, remember that swimming at the bottom of the falls is prohibited. If you’ve seen pictures of the falls before, they really don’t do it justice and it’s a sight you need to experience for yourself!
