Located in Australia's beautiful northwest, the Kimberley is one of the world’s oldest and largest wilderness landscapes. Its predominantly untouched coastline featuring pristine white silica shores and shimmering azure seas is an extraordinary contrast to the towering red sandstone escarpments, open sky and sweeping plains. Delicate coastal sandbanks, isles, inlets and other natural phenomena are routinely unveiled by the retreat of large tidal currents which dictate when and what to explore throughout the region, whilst providing a stunning canvas unrivaled on the Australian landscape.
