Kimberley Region

Kimberley is located on the northwest of Australia, and is one of the world’s most ancient wilderness areas, covering 163,300 square miles (423,000 sq km). Fauna and flora bloom in here, thanks to its incredible source of freshwater.

The region is characterized for its remarkable landscapes, with its beautiful orange canyons, that in contrast with the blue of the ocean, its rivers, waterfalls and gorges, create an incredible and colorful backdrop that will take your breath away. The rocks that make the region are presumed to be more than 2 billion years old.

Evidence shows that the area has been inhabited since 41,000 years ago. It’s an area of great diversity in all senses, with about 60 different aboriginal tribes living in the region. Nowadays, Kimberley has one of the lowest population densities in the world, with 40,000 people, 50% of which are aboriginal.
