To be immersed in the Kimberley is like touching the spiritual heart of our extraordinary country. Those who’ve explored this region with Outback Spirit talk of a deep sense of fulfilment at having ‘done the Kimberley’. The rugged escarpments, the magnificent gorges and pristine waterways; you’ll be blown away at just how spectacular it all is.
Travelling through the Kimberley, it’s hard not to be captivated by its history. From the early explorers to pastoral pioneers, to the defence of our shores during WWII; they’re all fascinating feats of bravery, courage and endurance. The region is also rich in Indigenous culture, having been home to Aboriginal people for tens of thousands of years. In many places, their ancient culture is recorded through stunning rock art.
Whichever part of the Kimberley is calling, the adventure of a lifetime awaits with Outback Spirit.

Outback Spirit is a proud financial supporter of Australian Wildlife Conservancy, Australia’s pre-eminent not-for-profit conservation group. With over 2.5 million acres across four sanctuaries, AWC is on the frontline of wildlife conservation in the Kimberley with ground-breaking research and on-ground management. Sadly, much of the Kimberley’s unique wildlife is under threat from extinction, and without groups like AWC the future for these precious species is very bleak. Since 2008, Outback Spirit has donated over $1 million to AWC, 90% of which is spent in the field, not on administration.
