"One of the best afternoons in the Kimberley was swimming in a secluded waterhole at the base of a waterfall. Another place where very few people have been. We helicoptered down along the winding Berkeley River and then boated across to this really private spot. It was amazing to spend the whole day there with the kids swimming and fishing. It's something I'll never forget." — Chris Hemsworth
One of the best ways to introduce yourself to the Kimberley region is by helicopter tour. If you want to see the best of the Kimberley in one fell swoop, take the Ultimate Kimberley Adventure tour. This tour will take you to some of the best rock galleries on the world. You will fly to the coast before heading inland across some true Kimberley country, including the King George Falls. Keep an eye out for turtles and crocodiles; you may even encounter an elusive dugong. Lastly, you will land by a picturesque waterhole for a late afternoon swim.
If you don't want a full-day tour, there are a variety of different options you can take:
Wetlands tour: If you're a bird lover, this one is for you. The Kimberley is renowned for its coastal wetlands which are home to an abundance of aquatic birds. Look out for the jabiru, sea eagles soaring overhead, heron, ibis, brolga and magpie geese.
Waterfall adventure: This tour takes you to Mitchell Falls, over the various landscapes of the Kimberley - grassy plains, dramatic rock formations and lush rainforest. You'll end the tour with a gourmet hamper by the waterfalls.
