The Kimberley has been included in the New York Times prestigious “52 Places to go in 2020”.
The following is how Daniel Scheffler described the destination.
The least touristy part of Australia is now in bloom with an easier-to-reach bucket list of natural wonders: the Bungle Bungle Range in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Purnululu National Park; the waterways of the mighty Ord River and Lake Argyle (one of the largest freshwater lakes in the Southern Hemisphere); and El Questro’s waterfalls, gorges and epic landscapes. There are new itineraries, too, including Narlijia Experiences’ history tours highlighting Aboriginal culture, and Kingfisher Tours’ outings to the unique and soon-to-close Argyle Diamond Mine. Other options include scenic flights over the Bungles and Lake Argyle, as well as Indian Ocean cruises to three untouched coral atolls in the Rowley Shoals Marine Park.
But there’s more: The city of Broome’s Chinatown area is now revitalized, and the area’s new accommodations are Call of The Kimberley’s outback glamping at Yeeda Cattle Station and the refurbished Kimberley Sands Resort and Spa, which is now for adults only. New air service from the region, which is far from the bushfires in eastern Australia, includes direct flights from Melbourne and Darwin to Kununurra.
