North West Western Australia
Western Australia's North West Region is one of the world's last great wilderness areas, which has fewer people per square kilometre than almost anywhere else on the planet. An ancient land with pure Australian bushland, wild rivers, mountains, deep gorges, and where rustic red and green colours flood the landscape. It is also home to thousands of fresh and saltwater crocodiles. These living dinosaurs inhabit the river systems which swell with torrential seasonal rains.
Mother Nature truly owns this landscape and those choosing to explore it are rewarded by a deep sense of connection with your own soul and this planet. Meet the local people, absorb the billion year history and simply soak up the energy.
It is not surprising then, that Baz Luhrmann's epic film "Australia", starring Nicole Kidman and High Jackman was filmed here, in and around Kununurra to catch the very essence of the country.
An exotic, multicultural town which is the pearling capital of the world. Home to the famous 20-mile Cable Beach where you can take a ride on a camel train while watching a tropical sunset over the milky blue water. Sample the delights of Chinatown.
On the shores of King Sound, travel along the outback river systems or travel offshore to the Recherche Archipelago and see amazing horizontal waterfalls, created by twelve metre ocean tides! Admire local Boab Trees, the town's icon.
