Australia’s North West

 

Visit Western Australia's North West region

Western Australia’s north has been described as the “Outback At Its Best” a fascinating blend of pristine coastlines, spectacular Gorge country formed millions of years ago, natural resource projects the size of which will amaze you and huge working sheep and cattle stations (farms) who welcome visitors.

The Unique North offers the visitor such a range of experiences from the thrill of interacting with a dolphin in the wild at monkey Mia to swimming with the World’s largest fish along the Ningaloo Reef or climbing the worlds largest rock at Mt. Augustus.

One of the world’s last great wilderness areas, the Kimberley is the ‘Last Frontier’. It’s also a place full of hidden treasure. Rugged ranges, spectacular gorges, stunning waterfalls, lush forest and offers an astonishing variety of flora and fauna.

Fascinating towns await the visitor – places like Broome with its magnificent Cable Beach, Kununurra and the nearby Bungle Bungle National Park, Exmouth and the spectacular Karijini National Park and the Shark Bay World Heritage area.

Let us plan your “soft adventure” self-drive tour, camping or accommodated safaris at exclusive wilderness camps or a coach tour of our Unique North. For the ultimate experience board one of the small group luxury cruises along the Kimberley’s spectacular coastline. Experience Australia’s last undiscovered region in style.
