Kalumburu Road in the far northern Kimberley region provides access to some of the most remote and spectacular terrain in the north. Four wheel drive enthusiasts will enjoy the challenging drive along the unsealed road that leads to the Aboriginal community of Kalumburu.
Stop along the way at the Drysdale River Station and then on to explore the magnificent Mitchell Falls before continuing your journey to Kalumburu. Allow time to explore the pristine yet rugged landscape, enjoy the sheer remoteness and see the amazing starlit night skies.
Kalumburu is a ten hour drive northwest of Kununurra. Before setting off, you will need to apply for permits to allow you to travel on parts of the road that is Aboriginal land and to enter the Kalumburu. Contact the Kununurra Visitor Centre for further information.
Allow a couple of days to reach Kalumburu and ensure you carry plenty of supplies, petrol, food and water as there are limited facilities along the road to the Kalumburu. Check road conditions prior to departure.
