Named after John Wodehouse, the first Earl of Kimberley, this red desert region takes up the northern part of Western Australia. Immigrants arrived here more than 40,000 years ago, making it one of the longest-settled areas on the continent. 

Known for its mining, fishing and agriculture, the Kimberley is as diverse in its economy as it is in its geography. A thriving pearling industry in Broome and a diamond mining tradition in Argyle and Ellendale means there’s a touch of luxury—exported throughout the world—present in this mostly wild and isolated region, too. 

Travelers love exploring the endless miles of calm blue sea, breathtaking gorges, thundering waterfalls and cavernous caves on a trip through this northwest wilderness. And tiny towns like Derby, Halls Creek and Wyndham, as well as the stunning Cable Beach, mean there’s plenty to explore in this diverse destination.

Practical Info

The Kimberley Region is bordered by the Indian Ocean, the Timor Sea, the Great Sandy and Tanami deserts and Australia’s Northern Territory. Approximately 40 percent of the country’s aboriginal population lives in Kimberley.
