The Kimberley

Australia

An online community founded by Kununurra based tour guide Scotty Connell and now runs with the help of our Ambassadors in the local tourism and photography industries.

@thekimberleyaustralia has quickly grown to become one of the largest destination pages in Australia. “The Kimberley, Australia” team have invested thousands of volunteer hours into the Instagram and Facebook pages over the past few years, which now have a current combined following of over 180,000 followers. Over the past 5 years, many local businesses have credited “The Kimberley, Australia” with increased business and, as an added bonus, there’s been a noticeable upsurge of Kimberley locals getting out and exploring ‘their backyard’ more, inspired by the beautiful images being shared online. In one of the most isolated parts of Australia, this shared camaraderie and also the connection to the outside world via this online community is priceless.
