Kimberley Driving Distances
In the Kimberley driving distances are huge, no matter where you go.
Actually, it is a loooong drive to get to the Kimberley in the first place, no matter where in Australia you start from...
Many people choose to fly instead.
For all the Kimberley driving distances in miles and kilometres see the lists and the tables below.
(Use the numbers for guidance only, sometimes different route options exist, leading to slightly different driving distances)

Driving Distances Across The Kimberley
The driving distances in the tables are shown in kilometres. Use the calculator at the bottom of the page to convert them into miles.
The first table shows Kimberley Australia driving distances via the Great Northern Highway:
|Broome||Derby||Fitzroy Crossing||Halls Creek||Kununurra||Wyndham|
The second table shows Kimberly driving distances via the famous Gibb River Road.
Keep in mind that the Gibb River Road is unsealed. Certain distances are shorter, but it will take you a lot longer to get there! The idea behind driving the Gibb River Road is not to get somewhere fast, but to enjoy a spectacular drive through one of the world's most beautiful and remote corners.
|Kununurra||El Questro||Kalumburu||Mount Barnett||Windjana Gorge||Derby|
