For many, the Kimberley is considered Australia’s final frontier. Wild and remote, it’s a massive region that is three times the size of the UK (and bigger than 75% of the world’s countries!) The raw beauty of the region must be seen to be believed. Whether you see the Kimberley by land or sea, you will leave here feeling enriched and spellbound by the raw beauty of this isolated part of Australia.

The Kimberley Australia

Waterfalls Everywhere

Wow. It’s looking like 2020 is going to be an amazing year to explore the Kimberley, thanks to lots of rain over the 2019/2020 Wet Season. The latest dump of rain is courtesy of ex-Tropical Cyclone Esther, which formed in the Gulf of Carpentaria. Over the weekend just gone, Kununurra received a whopping 300mm of rain since the tropical low passed over on Friday.

Check out these incredible images captured by locals who were out and about enjoying the magnificent Wet Season landscape of the Eastern Kimberley.

Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.

EMMA GORGE – BY ALLISTER PENNEY

THE DROPLET WATERFALL TURNS INTO A RAGING WET SEASON WONDER

Emma Gorge Resort is currently closed over the Wet Season, so the caretaker staff are keeping very busy managing the resort grounds while rain buckets down upon them. Office manager Sophie Gannon emailed us these photos, which were captured by assistant maintenance manager Allister Penney.

Just for comparison, here’s a photo of Emma Gorge, taken by @heidi_sigrid in the middle of the Dry Season.

“What a Wet Season. This photo was taken by Allister at Emma Gorge. What a great year this will be for the Kimberley!”

“I’ve never had the privilege of seeing the beautiful Flagstaff Falls flow. Allister is in his element chasing waterfalls and taking these beautiful pictures for us. This only flows after massive rain and unfortunately dries before we welcome most of our guests. Fingers crossed it sticks around for a little longer so everyone can experience it on the Emma Gorge walk.”

“I have never known the real name of this waterfall, but the Wet Season crew call it Verandah Falls. Mainly because they can sit in front of their rooms with a cold beer and watch this after a hot, humid day at work. What a view!”

— Sophie Gannon
