Region Guide

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.


At a Glance

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.
