Things to do in Broome and the Kimberley

Indigenous experience

The Kimberley is Western Australia’s sparsely settled northern region. It is home to only about 40,000 people, nearly 40 percent of the population are Aboriginal. The region too is as old and beautiful as the culture of the indigenous people who call it home. Just about everything here is rare and remote, from rock formations that are two billion years old to luxury Outback retreats. The region 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. You can go on an indigenous art trail or try a sunset walking tour. Visiting Aboriginal art galleries will help you gain a deeper appreciation of the culture.  

There's Heaps Of History In The Red Centre, Immerse Yourself In Aboriginal History And Culture Throughout Your Adventure.
Australia’s first people—known as Aboriginal Australians—have lived on the continent for over 50,000 years. Today, there are 250 distinct language groups spread throughout Australia.

Freshwater Crocodiles

The mostly unsealed (unpaved) Gibb River Road runs 660 kilometers through the region’s heart, passing by Windjana Gorge National Park, which has towering limestone cliffs and pools where freshwater crocodiles gather. The crocodiles are not alone though. Fruit bats and corellas call the waterside trees their roosting nooks. 

Main Attractions

The main attractions of Kimberley include the 1000 islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago. Also, Horizontal falls, Bungle Bungles, Boab Trees, Chamberlain George, Rock Art galleries and Cape Leveque. 

The 1000 Islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago

There are few sights more spellbinding than the Buccaneer Archipelago’s 1000 rocky islands emerging from a corn flour blue ocean. A tie-dye color scheme of grey, white and faded orange is topped with tufts of tropical growth. Showing that where there is extreme age, there is also youth. A beautiful trip with Buccaneer Explorer flies you over the islands. To truly fall in love, take a four-night discovery cruise aboard a luxury houseboat. It’s equipped with a helicopter and speedboat, to reach those unreachable places.

The Buccaneer Archipelago is a group of islands off the coast of Western Australia near the town of Derby in the Kimberley region. The closest inhabited place is Bardi located about 54 kilometres from the western end of the island group.

Horizontal Falls

The extremes of Mother Nature are revealed at Horizontal Falls, where tons of water squeezes through a gap in twin mountain ranges. Tidal movements are responsible for the large volume of water that flows through the cliff passages. The ebbs and flows of tidal movements push the waters. The Kimberley’s tropical tides are some of the biggest in the world rising and falling by up to 13 meters (43 feet). Therefore 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.

Tours To The Kimberleys From Broome
The Horizontal Falls, or Horizontal Waterfalls, nicknamed the “Horries” and known as Garaanngaddim to the local Indigenous people, are an unusual natural phenomenon on the coast of the Kimberley region in Western Australia, where tidal flows cause waterfalls on the ebb and flow of each tide.

The Ancient Domes of the Bungle Bungles

These towering, tiger-striped, rock formations eroded into beehive-like domes. These orange and black hued sandstone domes are an incredible sight. They 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 harbors sacred Aboriginal rock art, was only “discovered” by Europeans in the 1980s. Tours to the Kimberleys from Broome. Tour the Bungle Bungles on foot or from the air.

The Napier Range Kimberley
Walk and wander through Bungle Bungles. Striking landmark formed over 360 million years, known for its remote, beehive-like rock formations.

Purnululu National Park

The Purnululu National Park is a World Heritage Site in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia. The sheer grandeur of the sandstone massif, watching it changes to a golden colour late in the day. Walk through some of the marvelous gorges, and for the really well-prepared, a walk along Piccaninny Creek for an overnight camping experience would be ideal. But, the park is remote and supplies scarce. You’ll need to be well-prepared. Other walks include the Echidna Chasm Walk, Mini Palms Walk, the walk to Kungkalanayi Lookout. Explore Cathedral Gorge, the Domes Walk, Homestead Gorge, Piccaninny Creek Lookout, Whip Snake Gorge and the Northern Escarpment Walk are some attractions.

The Purnululu National Park is a World Heritage Site in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia. The 239,723-hectare national park is located approximately 300 kilometres south of Kununurra, with Halls Creek located to the south. 

Boab Trees

The Kimberley’s boab trees come in so many shapes and sizes they almost take on individual personalities. Related to Africa’s baobab, the boab resembles a bottle, with a wide base and thin neck that leads to a tangle of branches, like a messy hair-do. Aboriginal lore has many dreaming stories to explain their unusual look. Boabs dot the Outback along the ibb River Road, but can also be seen in the grounds of Broome, Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa out the front of Kununurra’s Kimberley Grand Resort and lining the main street of Derby. You can eat the nutritious boab tuber (root) at some cafés, in season.

Rusty Red Chamberlain Gorge

In the afternoon sun the flaming red wall of rock seems to rise with every meter of the three kilometers (1.9 mile). The boat journey along Chamberlin Gorge’s pancake flat waters. The escarpment can be found at an Outback station, El Questro Wilderness Park, and the guided cruise is an essential part of any stay. Peer over the boat’s edge to see cheeky archer fish that spit water at your fingertips. They’re aiming at what they think is prey. And, don’t forget to keep an eye out for rock wallabies and Johnston crocodiles too. 

Rusty Red Chamberlain Gorge
Boating along the Chamberlain Gorge is a must do.

The Dramatic Colors and Indigenous Culture of Cape Leveque

A couple of hours drive on a red dirt track heading north of Broome, at the tip of the Dampier Peninsula, is Cape Leveque. Here, you’ll find ochre cliffs, white beaches and highlighter Blue Ocean. For many, this is a special place to retreat from the everyday busy world and get back in touch with nature. Aboriginal communities cluster between tropical bush and curling estuaries. The Bardi Jawi people run Koolijaman, a wilderness camp. That combines a real-bed, safari tents with simple cabins and campsites, cultural tours, equipment hire and a Restaurant.
