Must See & Do - Gibb River Road

The Gibb River Road is often named at the top of the list when it comes to self drive roads not to miss across the whole of Australia, its rugged terrain and landscape provides a challenging yet rewarding adventure for anyone.

The Gibb River Road stretches for 660km straight through the heart of the Kimberley taking you from the eastern point of Kununurra/Wyndham to the western point of Derby/Broome. There is no right or wrong way to enjoy the Gibb River Road, just take it in your leisure and soak up the gorges, ranges, and waterfalls that epitomise the Kimberley region of Australia. This is really one not to miss. You can pick up Gibb River Road maps from the Kununurra Visitor Centre or click here to view Main Roads WA, "Driving the Gibb River Road" guide.
