The Kimberley is a remarkable, yet little-known region of Australia. Occupying an immense area of the continent's northwest, it is remote, sparsely populated, and features an abundance of natural diversity. As a region, it stands apart. The great arc of ranges to the south and east effectively isolates this area from the rest of the mainland. The deeply indented coastline to the north, fortified by rugged cliffs and washed by monstrous tides, completes the Kimberley's natural borders. Home to an amazing array of wildlife and vegetation, the Kimberley is also one of the world's last great natural refuges. From its scorched desert fringes and vast eucalypt woodlands, to pockets of remnant rainforest and coastal mangrove communities patrolled by saltwater crocodiles, the Kimberley's variety of habitats has few equals. This volume delves into the most remote and least-known parts of this wild frontier. A vibrant and informative text, accompanied by stunning photographs, superb paintings, and personal reflections, reveals many aspects of the Kimberley, from its natural history to the history of its exploration. With a strong cultural emphasis, this book also explores the area's Aboriginal history and the significance of rock art. This memorable book will truly captivate readers and leave them with an understanding of the complexity of one of the world's few remaining wild frontiers.
