THE KIMBERLEYS | Vast, remote and breathtaking
Covering over 420,000 square kilometres (three times the size of England), fiery red landscapes contrast against cobalt blue skies in the Kimberley. Towering rock faces send water tumbling into crystal blue seas and secluded gorges hide ancient Aboriginal art, welcoming waterholes and palm-filled oases.
