The 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 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.
If 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.
If 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.
If 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.
The 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.
Western 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.
Western 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.
WA 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.
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?
