One of the world's last wilderness frontiers

One of the most sparsely populated areas on earth, the Kimberley is the size of Germany but home to only about 40,000 people, nearly half of whom are Aboriginal. Just about everything here is rare and remote, from rock formations that are two billion years old to luxury Outback retreats. The Kimberley also contains thousands of tropical forest-topped islands, towering ochre cliffs, flat waterfalls and rock art galleries that scientists believe may be the oldest in the world. The 1000 islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago. The bizzarre horizontal falls - The Kimberley's tropical tides are some of the biggest in the world – rising and falling by up to 13 metres (43 feet) – and result in these remote, flat, whitewater rapids that can be experienced from above, or, if you’re game, from the surface. The jet boat ride through the churning falls is one heck of a thrill. The ancient domes of the Bungle Bungles - towering, tiger-striped rock formations, eroded into beehive-like domes, emerge from an otherwise flat landscape like sunflowers leaning skyward to the light. They're part of the 360-million-year-old Bungle Bungle Range in World Heritage Purnululu National Park. 

This grand expanse, which also harbours sacred Aboriginal rock art, was only "discovered" by Europeans in the 1980s. Rusty red Chamberlain Gorge - the flaming red wall of rock seems to rise with every metre of the three kilometre (1.9 mile) boat journey along Chamberlain Gorge's pancake flat waters. The escarpment can be found at an Outback station, El Questro Wilderness Park. The Kimberley is home to some of Australia's most spectacular rock art, believed to be the oldest in the world. At Freshwater Cove, a remote beach destination also known as Wijingarra Bard Bard, you can walk through bush to sweeping rock galleries with an Aboriginal custodian and hear the dreaming stories firsthand.
