Travel to the far reaches of the northwest to the Kimberley wilderness, regarded by Australians as the last frontier. This is an explorer's ultimate retreat. Azure water meets brilliant white beaches of Broome and red rock escarpments of the outback. Inland dramatic forested gorges contrast with cool secluded billabongs and thermal springs. Flying into this remote place provides breath-taking views of cascading waterfalls carving rivers through a landscape frozen in time.
