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

POLL: IS THE KIMBERLEY IN W.A OR THE N.T?

Where is the Kimberley, Western Australia or the Northern Territory?

This is the question that we recently asked our instagram followers and the poll results were surprising, with a staggering 18% believing that the Kimberley is in the N.T.

Poll on our instagram @thekimberleyaustralia.

ALMOST 20% BELIEVE THE KIMBERLEY IS IN THE NT

Yep, almost one fifth of 448 respondents believe that the Kimberley is the next state across, in the Northern Territory. In fact, the Kimberley occupies a rather large chunk of Western Australia. Stretching from Broome in the west, to Kununurra in the far east, the Kimberley is 423,517 square kilometres (163,521 sq mi), which is almost 1/6th of the total state of Western Australia. West Oz is 2,645,615 km2 (1,021,478 sq mi) in size. Or, to put it into perspective,the Kimberley is about three times the size of England, twice the size of Victoria, or just slightly smaller than California.
