金伯利(Kimberley)指南

由Georgia Rickard撰寫

金伯利地區是英格蘭面積的3倍,而人口不到4萬,覆蓋了澳洲整個西北角,是世界上最後倖存的荒野之一。在這裡,您將遇見多種多樣的野生動物,可欣賞深壑峽谷,在淡水水潭中游泳,還會發現好些內陸站點,另有澳洲數一數二的頂尖四驅道路。儘管地處偏僻,但這區有美味食物、豪華住宿,以及全球最浪漫的幾個海灘小鎮,且當地人友善好客。

盡情享受布魯姆的風情

活力四射的布魯姆小鎮是澳洲具代表性的旅遊勝地之一,它那紫紅色的日落、弗吉帕尼樹(frangipani)、熱帶氣候,還有美麗的白色沙灘,統統深受世人喜愛。在這裡,您將發現澳洲最著名的兩種文化特徵的融合為一,內陸和沙灘就這樣以悠閒獨特的方式連結在一起。不妨任選凱布爾海灘俱樂部(Cable Beach Club)等眾多五星級酒店之一,住宿一晚;您亦可在極度受歡迎的馬抽(Matso)啤酒廠品嚐一杯當地釀造的芒果啤酒;隨著日落,您還可在凱布爾海灘騎一騎駱駝,到甘索姆角(Gantheaume Point)亮紅色石頭上查看古老的恐龍足跡,又或在位於別緻的政府大樓前的露天週末市場中淘貨, 購買珠母貝(Pinctada)大珍珠— 這些珍珠都是在當地金光閃閃的水域養殖而成。

遊船沿著金伯利海岸線前行

金伯利有十幾家聲譽良好的遊船公司,以大小船隻為遊客提供金伯利海岸線巡遊體驗。有些遊船公司,如正北方(True North)大逃亡(Great Escape)等更有為客人提供船上直升機服務,以供探索之用。遊船路線不盡相同,不過全都繞著澳洲西北角而行—在這條原始的海岸線上,錯落點綴著2,600多個島嶼(其中許多島嶼都沒有命名),蔚為奇觀!一路上,您將欣賞到遠古時代的原住民岩石藝術,並可在淡水潭中游泳嬉戲,在白色沙灘上野餐,看盡多種多樣的野生動物,當中包括各種鳥類、鯨魚、海豚和鹹水鱷魚。

吉布河路(Gibb River Road)在當地又稱為吉布(Gibb),是一條四驅小道,從中間穿越金伯利,由東至西橫跨660公里(410英里)。吉布路兩側的一些小路皆可前往令人驚艷的峽谷、友善的內陸站點和住宿、淡水潭、露營地、原住民社區、保護區內的露營點如摩寧頓野外露營地(Mornington Wilderness Camp)等。這條路將為您送上澳洲最有魅力的旅途之一。您可以在布魯姆庫努納拉(Kununurra)租借四驅車。

Stay at spectacular El Questro

El Questro Wilderness Park has to be seen to be believed. The one-million-acre (404,686-hectare) working cattle station, in the east Kimberley (near Kununurra) on the Gibb River Road, is a natural playground of majestic canyons, freshwater swimming holes, bushwalking trails, Aboriginal rock art and grand mountain ranges. The park has its own small township, with camping sites, cabins, a shop and its own airstrip. There is also four-star accommodation available at El Questro's Emma Gorge Resort, or you can book an exclusive suite or villa at the six-star luxury lodge, The Homestead, which caters for just 18 guests at a time, and has hosted many famous figures, including politicians and movie stars.

參觀班古魯班古魯(Bungle Bungles)

班古魯班古魯山脈巨大的圓頂因擁有橙黑相間的條紋,故經常被比作蜂巢,而成百上千個圓頂紮堆在東金伯利的普爾努盧盧國家公園(Purnululu National Park)中,場面令人驚嘆!要盡賞這些高達30米(100英尺)的圓頂山脈,最好的方法之一是乘坐從附近庫努納拉鎮起飛的觀光飛機,身處高空俯瞰;而您亦可參與陸路旅行團,到此遊覽。
