The Kimberley is considered by many people to be Australia's last frontier. From the west coast around historic Broome and its glorious untouched beaches, northwards along the Gibb River Road and its many gorges, to the wilderness marvels of the Mitchell Plateau and eastwards to the man-made lakes of the Ord River, there is a richness and a variety of scenery habitat and animal life seldom matched elsewhere in Australia. It is a region for adventure, excitement and exploration.
The few tracks that cut across the landscape are little used and large areas have yet to see the footprint of modem man. Nature lovers, fishermen, four wheel drive tourers, and campers will revel in the wide open spaces, the sheer rugged ranges, the magnificent Aboriginal art and the pristine rivers and gem-like waterholes.
This comprehensive guide, now in its eighth edition, encompasses natural and historical information, as well as details on the major areas, Aboriginal communities and all of the towns within the Kimberley. Comprehensive trek notes and GPS points cover the remote tracks throughout the area, giving access details to camp sites, scenic spots and places to visit.
There's detailed information on fishing spots and the best places to launch a small boat. An exhaustive list of travel operators, guides and station accommodation, along with important phone numbers, web sites and contacts make this book a must for those going to the Kimberley for the first or thirtieth time.
The authors' knowledge of four wheel driving, travelling in remote places and their comprehensive expertise within the Kimberley is brought together in this book so that others will be more able to fully enjoy this magnificent region.
