Majestic canyons, prolific wildlife, freshwater swimming holes and outback stations; the Kimberley region of Australia is something else. Three times the size of England, with a population of just 40,000, this part of the country has become known as one of the world’s last wilderness frontiers. Despite its vast remoteness, it certainly doesn’t lack in great food, friendly locals, luxury experiences and romantic beach towns. If there’s one certainty, it’s that you won’t return home the same person after experiencing the magic of Australia’s northwest corner on this 10-day escorted tour.
