Western Australia

Western Australia is a state occupying the western 32.9 percent of the land area of Australia the second-largest country subdivision in the world, surpassed only by Russia’s Sakha Republic. As of 2017, the state has about 2.6 million inhabitants – around 11 percent of the national total – of whom the vast majority live in the south-west corner, 79 percent of the population living in the Perth area, leaving the remainder of the state sparsely populated Western Australia’s picturesque and rugged beauty was made to be explored by road.  Taking at least a couple of weeks gives you the opportunity to explore one area well. To get to a number of the best places requires a 4WD vehicle. The tours offered by WA Safaris take you to some of the world’s most pristine and clean coastlines, into the heart of remote indigenous country art and culture and through spectacular gorges and outback.

The Gibb River Road

It is probably the best and easiest way to experience the Majestic Kimberley Region. Formally known as the Mt Hart Road, it runs across diagonally through the area and is the most spectacular way between Derby in the west and Kununurra in the east. The road is often impassable in the wet season because of the many large rivers that intersect it. Hence the tour starts in the dry season when the rivers are crossable and the road has dried out. The route is quite rough in places. This is why all our coaches have upgraded suspension. The rattles
and shakes are indeed worth it. You will experience some of the most picturesque country in the Kimberley on or near this road. You will explore numerous magnificent gorges, rivers and waterholes. Hidden in the rocky bluffs you will discover the ancient art of the First Australians. In the mornings you will be woken to the incredible array of bird calls before the sun crests the horizon. Kimberley Safari Tours are Gibb River Road experts and passionate about enabling you to experience a life changing adventure in this unique area.
