The Kimberley is a remarkable yet little-known part of Australia. It occupies an immense area of the continent's north-west, and the great arc of ranges to the south and east effectively isolates the area from the rest of the mainland. The deeply indented coastline to the north, fortified by rugged cliffs and washed by monstrous tides, completes the Kimberley's natural borders.
Enclosed within these boundaries is another world - a wild realm that remains largely unspoilt. This is a place of plateaus and gorges, sweeping sandstone escarpments, massive waterfalls and surreal geological formations like the Bungle Bungle Range. The Kimberley is home to a remarkable array of wildlife and vegetation and it stands as one of the world's last great natural refuges. From its scorched desert fringes and vast eucalypt woodlands, to pockets of remnant rainforest and coastal mangrove communities patrolled by saltwater crocodiles, the variety of habitats has few equals.
This book is a journey into the heart of this region and offers a memorable experience of one of the world's few remaining wild frontiers.
