Derby Airport is your all-access pass to one of the last true wilderness areas on Earth – the Kimberley. A scenic or charter flight is the only way to access many of the region’s world-famous wonders and rarely seen natural treasures – from Horizontal Waterfalls, Montgomery Reef and the 1,000 islands and islets of the Buccaneer Archipelago, to the spectacular falls of Kings Cascades and the Mitchell Plateau.
It’s under ten minutes’ drive from central Derby to reach this regional airport for scenic and charter flights. For scheduled flights from Perth, you’ll need to fly in to Broome and take the road east to Derby (a two-hour and 20-minute drive).
If you’re looking for a quicker, more glamorous way to experience outback adventure on the mighty Gibb River Road, a flight from Derby will give you the highlights. Explore stunning gorge country, experience outback life on vast cattle stations, and lounge in luxurious wilderness lodges.
From the air, you’ll also get a unique perspective on the largest tidal movements in the southern hemisphere and the striking patterns they create on Derby’s vast mudflats.
