Travelling to Wyndham
Wyndham is the most northerly town in Western Australia, situated on the Cambridge Gulf, 3216km North East of Perth via the Great Northern Highway,
At present no airlines fly directly to Wyndham however flights are available into Kununurra with both Virgin Australia and Qantas, and car hire is available from the Airport. Wyndham is located 100 kilometers North West of Kununurra, at the end of the Great Northern Highway, with sealed road all the way.
It is the closest town to the eastern end of The Gibb River Road & therefore the ideal stepping stone to the awesome gorges & rugged scenery the Kimberley has to offer.
Driving in the Kimberley
The Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley provide a Road Condition Report that is updated as and when conditions change.
Main Roads Western Australia provide a Traffic and Road Condition Report for the Kimberley Region covering the Great Northern and Victoria Highways and Gibb River Road.
A high clearance 4 Wheel Drive vehicle is recommended for all travel on the Gibb River and Kalumburu Roads.
Although the Gibb River Road is less than 700km in length (and the Kalumburu Road less than 300km), the number of places to see and road conditions make it well worth spending seven days and more in the area (additional days if heading up to Kalumburu & Mitchell Plateau). These are suggested itineraries only.
Travellers are recommended to review distances, driving times, fuel availability and time spent walking each gorge to ensure an enjoyable holiday. The most flexible itineraries are camping throughout, however a number of places offer comfortable Dinner, Bed & Breakfast packages.
