The beautiful north west 

Right now, inappropriate and unsustainable development without proper consent from Traditional Owners is threatening the Kimberley. The laws that protect our air, water and wildlife are under pressure and underperforming.

A better future for people and nature in the north is to create a resilient and diverse economy that sustains the intact savannah landscapes, free flowing rivers and wetlands. Where people have the opportunity to work in tourism, clean energy, sustainable agriculture, arts, education and land and water management.

We can all help to protect and manage the natural and cultural heritage of the Kimberley by supporting sustainable tourism initiatives like the Kimberley Ranger Experience.
