The East Kimberley is located in the rugged picturesque and sparsely populated northeast corner of Western Australia, stretching from the Northern Territory border to the northern most tip of WA.
One of four regions that make the Kimberley, the East Kimberley covers an area of 121,000 square kilometres. The towns of Kununurra and Wyndham make up the majority of the population in the East Kimberley in addition to a number of important Aboriginal Communities; the largest being Kalumburu, which is situated to the northwest of Kununurra.
Famous for its warm welcome to tourists, some of whom settled in the region, the East Kimberley offers some of the most beautiful attractions in Australia including the Carr Boyd Ranges, Celebrity Tree Park, Cockburn Ranges, Drysdale River National Park, Emma Gorge, Five Rivers Lookout (the Bastion), Gibb River Road, The Grotto, Ivanhoe Crossing, Kelly’s Knob, Kununurra Diversion Dam/Lake Kununurra, Lake Argyle, Lily Lagoons, Mirima National Park, Mitchell River National Park, Ord River Irrigation Area, Ord River, Parry’s Lagoon Nature Reserve, Pentecost River, Ragged Range, Wyndham Community Fishing Jetty and Zebedee Springs.
