All in The Kimberley

The East Kimberley

Everything about our adventures here surprised us. It truly is a beautiful part of the world, and a must see at some point in your life. Trying to pick out our favourites has been tough because we really did love everything, so here goes in no particular order....

Lake Argyle

By now we’ve realised that the Kimberley does nothing by halves. It’s impossible to not be impressed by the size of everything, including how big some of the corrugations can be. Lake Argyle Caravan Park was voted the best Caravan Park in Australia last year (10 years ago it was the worst!). Afters days of red dust and the heat you setup camp under shady trees on green lawns and wander to the infinity pool, overlooking Lake Argyle. 

The Bungle Bungles

This stop on our Kimberley trek was the one I was looking forward to the most and it did not disappoint. For Mr. it was Kooljaman – Cape Leveque, for me it was the Bungle Bungles.

I had one misconception about our Kimberley trek, I thought it would be flat and so far it hasn’t been at all.  From Halls Creek we started seeing hills, mountains and ranges. The drive into Purnululu has you weaving your way up, down and around through the Osmand Ranges. I can’t believe we never read or were told anything about this amazing area surrounding the Bungle Bungles.

Middle Lagoon - Nature's Hideaway

If Kooljaman hit all the marks what would you expect on your final Dampier Peninsula destination, especially when you know hardly anything about it? How about a campsite overlooking the ocean, less than 50 steps to the shore and spectacular sunsets similar to Kooljaman

Cape Leveque - Kooljaman

Cape Leveque has been up in our top three must do’s since we started planning this trip. Along with the Bungle Bungle’s and the Gibb River Road, the sight of the red rock faces hitting pristine white beach sand was one of the iconic pictures burned into our brains and we just HAD to see it.
