The Kimberley in the far north west corner of Australia is an area of outstanding beauty
The Kimberley is a favourite destination for travellers in Australia. There are mountain ranges, gorges and waterfalls, wide sweeping beaches, plenty of fishing spots and spectacular scenery. This brand new video includes many of the highlights that the Kimberley has to offer.
This video begins with Wolfe Creek Meteorite Crater, the second largest impact crater in the world. Access to view the crater is from the Tanami Road.
From there our trip included a boat ride through Danggu-Geikie Gorge on the Fitzroy River. Then we visited Derby and joined the wonderful adventure of the Horizontal Falls. This was a spectacular highlight with a flight on an amphibious aeroplane which alighted at Talbot Bay. From the air we could see the narrow channels where the ‘falls’ occur. The falls are caused by the volumes of water flowing through the narrow gaps during tidal changes.
The adventure continued with purpose-built fast boats powering across the falls and through the gaps. This was great fun! You can share the adventure on this DVD.
In Broome we headed for Cable Beach at sunset to watch the camel trains striding by.
More Kimberley highlights
There were many other highlights including the red cliffs of Cape Leveque and the tranquillity of Middle Lagoon. Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek, Bell Gorge, Manning Gorge and Mornington Wilderness Camp and some canoeing fun through Dimond Gorge on the Fitzroy River are all included in the video.
We didn’t quite make it to Mitchell Falls by vehicle, and chose instead to fly over the coastline and the falls from Drysdale River. From the air, we were able to appreciate the extent of the coastline and the huge river systems flowing into the sea.
We also visited Home Valley, El Questro and Emma Gorge. From Kununurra we headed for the stunning scenery and natural features of Purnululu National Park and the Bungle Bungle Range. Echidna Chasm and Cathedral Gorge are two outstanding formations found here.
All of our adventures can be seen in this video, where you too can appreciate the colours of this beautiful part of Australia.
