The Western Australia Kimberley Region

A Travel Guide To Australia's Last True Wilderness

This Kimberley Travel Guide takes you through one of the remotest, wildest and most beautiful regions on earth.

For me the Kimberleys in Western Australia were love at first sight and a good enough reason to move here permanently.

That's right, this travel guide is written and maintained by a resident of the region, not by some tourism business.

That's why it covers a lot more than the usual tourist attractions.

My website and guide books give you an inside look at the Kimberly. It's like a trip with a local.

The website contains practical advice for people planning a trip, detailed descriptions of popular drives, of national parks and hikes. It tells you about all the gorges and waterfalls and beaches, including and especially the ones that you won't find mentioned elsewhere...

So come on a drive...

I will take you to waterfalls and beach hideaways, rock pools and fishing spots, all the secret places that we don't usually tell the tourists about!

You can read about the weather and the seasons, the flora and the wildlife, the culture and the geology...

...about must-havesmust-dos, and must-notsall you need to know to enjoy this adventure of a lifetime.

The natural beauty of this region will take your breath away. It is hard to put into words, which is why you will also find many pictures on this site.

Treat yourself to this fantastic video documentary of a drive through the whole region and along the Gibb River Road!

Thinking about taking your dog? I've got you covered!

Now, this website has several hundred pages and in the beginning it can be a bit overwhelming. That's why I have also created a FREE Kimberley Travel Guidebook to get you started. It tells you everything you need to know to plan a trip across the Kimberley. You can get access to it by subscribing to my updates (for free of course) through the box below.

It's my thank you for your interest in my site and in the beautiful part of the world that I live in.

Add a link to your blogroll, bookmark me on your favourite social bookmarking  site, post to your Facebook Wall, share it in your groups, tweet it, pin it... you get the idea. Every link helps!

The advice and the stories you find on this site are for real. It's a Travel Guide written and maintained by someone who lives here. I arrived in the Kimberley in 1994 as an overseas traveller myself, fell hopelessly in love with the region, and stayed...

...and I would love to show you why!

Welcome to "my backyard" and enjoy your stay!
I hope you will love it here as much as I do.

The Mitchell Falls and Mitchell Plateau
It's not just the Mitchell Falls that make the Mitchell Plateau special, there is so much to discover and do here. This is one of my favourite areas.

Mornington Wilderness Camp
The focus at  Mornington Wildlife Sanctuary is on conservation work and not on tourism, and that makes for a very special vibe. Another favourite place of mine!
