North West Australia is home to a diverse and unique range of Kimberley wildlife, birdlife, and plants which have evolved over thousands of years to co-exist, and survive within the terrain.
Within this last frontier of unspoilt natural beauty, rare and endangered species of fauna and flora can florish within a unique wilderness environment that is protected, strengthened & preserved by conservation parks and reserves. Whilst driving the Gibb River Road you will see animals such as Agile wallabies jumping across rock outcrops, Antilopine Kangaroos traversing the grassy plains, & Goannas basking in the sun on the road side.
