The Kimberley region of Western Australia is one of the most remote places on Earth. It’s home to some of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders, including waterfalls and rock formations that can be found nowhere else on earth.
The best way to experience such majestic beauty? By taking Best Tours of Kimberley Adventure. In this blog post, we’ll give you all the details about what you need to know about tours in the Kimberley region.
The Horizontal Waterfall
Australia’s longest waterfall, the Horizontal Waterfall is located in Western Australia’s Kimberley region. It’s a popular tourist attraction and can be found along the Gibb River Road.
The waterfall is named after the shape of its pool, which resembles a horizontal line rather than following the natural curve of most waterfalls. This unusual shape makes for some amazing photo opportunities!
The waterfall has an impressive width of 647 metres (2,119 feet) and extends over 2 kilometres (1.24 miles) from top to bottom! That’s longer than Niagara Falls!
The Kimberley Coast
The Kimberley Coast is one of the most spectacular coastal drives in Australia. It is home to many hidden gems and some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia.
The Kimberley Coast offers a unique glimpse into the rich history of this part of Western Australia, including ancient Aboriginal rock art sites, a traditional fishing camp and shipwreck sites.
The area has a wide variety of wildlife including dolphins, sharks and humpback whales along with other marine life such as dugongs and turtles which can be seen during whale watching tours in season (July to November). If you’re looking for adventure head out on a guided walking tour or horse riding experience along stunning white beaches or explore remote inland areas by 4×4 vehicle or helicopter flightseeing tour!
King George Falls
King George Falls are located within the King George Falls National Park, in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.
The falls are also known as Bungle Bungle Falls, which is a misnomer derived from the local Aboriginal language. They were named after King George V and were discovered by a surveyor named John Forrest in 1879.
The falls contain several tiers and can be viewed from several different vantage points throughout the national park; however, viewing options vary depending on when you visit (i.e., during wet season or dry season).
The Bungle Bungles are a rugged sandstone formation in the far north of Western Australia. The name comes from the Aboriginal word ‘bunggul’, which means “place of water”. The Bungle Bungles are a World Heritage Site and one of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations.
The distinctive landmass was formed by wind, rain and erosion over millions of years. It consists mainly of sandstone plateaus that rise up to 550 meters above sea level, but there are also some slopes with steep gradients down to the surrounding plain where you can find footprints made by dinosaurs about 200 million years ago!
The Gibb River Road
The Gibb River Road is a spectacular drive through the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The road is one of the most remote roads in the world, and should only be attempted by experienced drivers.
The Gibb River Road begins at Kununurra and travels east to Derby before turning north-east towards Wyndham. At this point it becomes unsealed, but remains passable with an all-wheel drive vehicle or high clearance vehicle.
While there are many popular destinations along this route—including Windjana Gorge Nature Park and Tunnel Creek National Park—the best place to start your trip is Cape Leveque Roadhouse.
From here you can hire an outback adventure tour guide or set out on your own (with a support vehicle) to explore some of the stunning natural features of this part of Australia’s remote Outback interior including Lake Argyle, Wave Rock and King’s Canyon.
