Delivering a Healthy WA
Living and working in Western Australia (WA)



The Kimberley is the state’s most northern region. The coastline faces the Indian Ocean to the west and the Timor Sea to the north.


The Kimberley's area of 424,517 square kilometres is almost twice the size of the state of Victoria, and three times that of the United Kingdom. It features deserts, gorges and river valleys, beaches, rainforest areas and cave systems.

Major towns

The major population centres are the towns of Broome, Derby, Fitzroy Crossing, Halls Creek, Kununurra and Wyndham.

There are also over 100 Aboriginal communities of various population sizes throughout the region and nearly 100 properties servicing the pastoral industry.
