The northwest region of Western Australia spans the top of the state and is known as The Kimberly.  This remote wilderness is 4WD territory and has rugged ranges, red earth, fossil reefs, sandstone spires, rainforests, spectacular gorges, waterfalls, cave systems, wildlife, boab trees, termite mounds and hidden lakes.  The two main roads that traverse the area are the Great Northern Highway (sealed road) and the Gibb River Road (4WD).  Only 30,000 people live in this region, and it is an area three times the size of England.   The unoffical capital of East Kimberly is Kununurra, which is the gateway to El Questro Wilderness Park, Argyle Diamond Mine and  Purnululu National Park (also known as the Bungle Bungle Range).  On the west coast are located Broome, Dampier Peninsula, Derby and the Gibb River Road, which links Derby to Kununurra (413 miles).

The Northwest portion of Western Australia.

BROOME is 1,406 miles north of Perth and 1,161 miles southwest of Darwin, Northern Territory.   The population is 12,000 and the town is a mixture of Aboriginals, Australians and Asians, who came here because of the pearling industry.  The town is also known for Cable Beach, which is 16 miles long.
