Seven must-see attractions in Kimberley

Kimberley is one of the least populous regions on Earth, with an area roughly the size of Germany and a population of only about 40,000 people, nearly half of whom are indigenous. Almost everything here is rare and ancient, from rock formations dating back two billion years to luxurious inland resorts. In addition, Kimberley is home to thousands of tropical forest-covered islands, breathtaking red cliffs, gentle waterfalls, and what scientists believe to be the world's oldest rock art gallery. Kimberley has so many awe-inspiring natural wonders to explore.

1,000 islands of the Pirate Islands

The Buccaneer Archipelago is composed of more than 1000 islands, standing in the indigo ocean, with a breathtaking view. These islands are made up of a tie-dye color scheme of gray, white, and light orange, covered with tropical vegetation, vibrant, proving that even the most ancient places have the same vitality. If you want to delve into this place, the Buccaneer Explorer's sightseeing tour can take you to leap over the islands, but if you really want to fall in love with it, then you should join the four-day cruise discovery tour, aboard the luxury cruise Kimberley Quest II, equipped with a comfortable spa center and speedboats, directly to these hard-to-reach places.

Unique horizontal waterfall

The Horizontal Waterfall in the Kimberley region is one of the wonders of nature, with water rushing through the cracks of the Twin Peaks, creating a breathtaking natural spectacle. In the Kimberley region, the tropical tides are among the largest tidal movements in the world, with a difference in water level of up to 13 meters. If you dare to try, you can choose to experience the excitement and thrill of riding a sightseeing plane or rowing in these surging tides. Riding a jet boat through the turbulent waterfalls is also an exciting experience. In any case, the spectacular scenery and natural beauty of the Kimberley region will leave you with unforgettable memories.

Bangerbanger's Ancient Mountain Bundle

The Bungle Bungles (Bungle Bungles) are a unique group of tiger-striped rock formations in Purnululu National Park, resembling honeycomb-shaped hills standing tall on flat ground. This mountain range has a long history, dating back approximately 360 million years. The rock formations also contain sacred Aboriginal rock art, which was not discovered by Europeans until the 1980s. If you want to explore the beautiful scenery here, you can choose to hike or take a scenic flight. Of course, the best way is to experience both, as this place is sure to provide you with an unforgettable experience. In the evening, you can stay at the Savannah Lodge near the Bungle Bungle mountain range.

Bottle tree

The bottle trees in the Kimberley region vary in size and shape, each with its own unique features. These trees are related to the African baobab tree, with a wide base and a complex tangle of branches at the top, resembling a bottle and messy hair. There are many imaginative stories among the local indigenous people to explain the unique appearance of these trees. Many bottle trees can be seen in the inland areas of the Gibb River Road, as well as at Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa in Broome, Kimberley Grande Resort in Kununurra, and along the main street in Derby. In addition, some cafes offer locally harvested bottle tree tubers, which are nutritious and in season.

Red rust-colored Zhangboren Canyon

You can take a boat ride in the calm waters of the Zhangboren Canyon in the afternoon sun. The red rock walls on either side of the canyon burn like flames, and the entire journey is three kilometers long. Every meter you move, you will feel the rock walls constantly extending upwards. The inland El Questro Wilderness Park is also a great place to explore the cliffs, but must be accompanied by a guide.
