Kununurra is located in the heart of the Kimberley in Western Australia, one of the world's last great wilderness areas. Covering an expanse of nearly 423,000 square kilometres and with an estimated population of just 30,000, The Kimberley has fewer people per square kilometre than almost any other place on earth.
The Kimberley has two distinct seasons - the dry and the wet. During the dry, which lasts from May until October, the temperature is warm and comfortable. The wet, which extends from November until April, is characterised by heavy and short rainfalls.
The Kimberley is one of the premier four wheel drive destinations in the world. The biggest four wheel drive challenge is the Gibb River Road between Kununurra and Broome and it dissects some of the most rugged country on earth.
