One of the best ways to experience the Kimberley region is a holiday under canvas. In recent times, the growth of glamping or glamorous camping resorts has proven a boon for travellers partial to city luxuries.

From the Indian Ocean to the outback, glamping resorts in the Kimberley offer guests comfy beds, private showers and gourmet meals in some of its most pristine wilderness areas.

  1. I love to camp. It does not usually matter where in the world that I am, if I can comfortable get outdoors and sleep there, I am going to give it a try. Great post!

  2. This looks like an excellent retreat and a fantastic getaway. Beautiful, relaxing, and just generally enjoyable. I love camping, too!

  3. Glamping is definately becoming the “new” thing. Getting out of the city and to the rustic views of any rural area is great for your mind and your body!
