The Kimberley Travel and Adventure Guide
$34.95

New 8th Edition - Previously titled The Kimberley - An Adventurers Guide

Ron and Viv Moon’s definitive guide to the Kimberley is 208 pages of vital information, which has been gleaned from over 35 years of travelling throughout the Kimberley. This guidebook is considered to be the ‘bible’ for those travelling the Kimberley and continues to be written with the aim of helping other travellers get the most out of what the Kimberley has to offer.

The Kimberley is considered by many people to be Australia’s last frontier and from a traveller’s and adventurer’s point of view no one knows it better than Ron and Viv Moon who first journeyed along a rough, narrow and nascent Gibb River Road in 1978.

From the west coast around historic Broome and its glorious untouched beaches, northwards along the Gibb River Road and its many gorges, to the wilderness marvels of the Mitchell Plateau and eastwards to the man-made lakes of the Ord River, there is a richness and a variety of scenery, habitat and animal life seldom matched elsewhere in Australia. It is a region for adventure, excitement and exploration, with large areas yet to see the footprint of modern man. Nature lovers, fishermen, four wheel drive tourers and campers will revel in the wide open spaces, the sheer rugged ranges, the magnificent Aboriginal art and the pristine rivers and gem-like waterholes.
