The Ultimate Guide to the Kimberley

Australian attractionsThe Kimberley is one of the most amazing places on earth, and is frequented by those looking for adventure, unbelievable scenery, incredible wildlife and natural beauty. At roughly 3 times the size of England and with a huge list of spectacular places to explore you could spend months (and many do) exploring the region. In 2014, the Kimberley was ranked 2nd best region to visit in the world! 

 


Kununurra; the ultimate guide for things to do

Kununurra Boab TreeKununurra is a beautiful place. I remember the first time I drove through it in 2015 thinking this has got to be one of the most picturesque towns I’ve ever seen, and I still believe it today.

The massive red hills, stunning water crossings and beautiful wildlife make it a hugely attractive place to visit. In 2015, we passed through purely to get some food and fuel, before heading out to Lake Argyle.


Amazing WA Wildflowers under 5 hours from Perth

Pink Wildflowers near PerthIf you’ve never seen the wildflowers in WA, you’ve been missing out. To see the giant blooms of bright pink, white and yellow on the side of the road, and covering huge areas as far as the eye can see is an experience you won’t forget in a hurry. Here at 4WDing Australia, we’ve been lucky enough to see wildflowers on a number of trips in the past, but up until now never specifically headed out in search of them.


Fitzgerald River National Park

Fitzgerald River National ParkIf there’s one under-rated National Park in WA, its the Fitzgerald River. With its incredible whale watching, world class beaches, 4WD tracks and huge flora and fauna diversity, its the perfect destination.

 


3 weeks in the Pilbara

Magic Pool camp siteAfter dedicating 3 weeks of travel through the Pilbara and Gascoyne Region, I can say without a doubt that its one of the most under-rated places in the country. We spent a huge amount of time off grid, found incredible places and hardly saw a soul in many of them. Want to know where we went, what we spent and heaps more? Find out here


6 weeks in the Coral Coast, Pilbara and Kimberley

Pilbara campingNot much beats 6 weeks off work exploring the best of Western Australia, and we did exactly that. Covering amazing places like Pender Bay and Cape Range National Park, we meandered our way through WA with a group of family and friends for 6 weeks. Here’s what we saw, spent, did and heaps more.

 


Coalseam Conservation Park

Early morning walksIf you are chasing some of the most amazing wildflower blooms close to Perth, Coalseam Conservation Park is absolutely incredible. We spent a couple of nights there recently, and loved every minute of it.

 


Cape Range National Park

Osprey Bay Camping at NingalooIf camping metres from the Ningaloo Reef in a low cost camp tickles your fancy, Cape Range National Park is the place to go. With some of the best beaches and snorkeling in the country, its hugely popular, to the point that booking online has become quite a mission!

 


Dirk Hartog Island; a 4WD, camping and fishing paradise

Dirk Hartogs BeachesThe WA coastline is well known for it’s untouched beauty, with some of the best beaches in the world. Over the years I’ve covered a fair bit of what it has to offer, and loved every minute of it. However, every now and again a place appears that stands head and shoulders above the rest.

 


WA National Park Pass; how to save 50% with RAC

Sunset at Francois PeronWestern Australia is home to over 100 National Parks, from the beautiful Purnululu in the Kimberley all the way down to Cape Le Grande near Esperance. They include some of the most stunning places in the world; from pristine white sandy beaches with turquoise water to ancient gorges and waterfalls that will burn into your memory forever. The Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPAW) manage the national parks, and many of them require you to have a parks pass to enter.


Mt Augustus; the world’s biggest rock

Nearly at Mt AugustusWhen you’re heading to Mt Augustus, you expect a big rock. What you actually see though, is hard to describe, and there’s a reason its the largest rock in the world. We had a great time at Mt Augustus, and whilst its not your typical destination for many, we highly recommend it.

 


Perth to Broome; how many days driving?

80 series tourerWestern Australia is a massive place. I don’t think you can really appreciate its size, until you’ve driven across it. A lot of people visit Broome from Perth every year, whether its just to enjoy the spectacular sights of the Kimberley, or to begin a huge 4WD adventure to Cape Leveque and the Gibb River Road.

 


Karijini

Karijini National ParkWA has some of the most spectacular places to visit in the world, and I am sure that those who have travelled extensively would agree. Before visiting Karijini, I had read the hundreds of positive reviews online, and a number of people had said it is the best national park in Australia.

 


El Questro

Do you have an LSD?Located along the Gibb River Road, El Questro Caravan Park and station is a one million acre tourist magnet. Each year, its visited by thousands of tourists from all over the world. It’s developed quite the name for itself. The thing is though, is it really worth the visit?
