In June and July of 2022 as part of our Australia cruising we travelled with Begonia to The Kimberley (yes, it is 'The Kimberley' and never 'The Kimberlies').

The Kimberley is huge (about three times the size of the England), the most northern of the nine regions of the state of Western Australia (WA). It's beautiful with ancient geology and human inhabitation for over 40,000 years. Barely any of the coastline has any road access so the best way to explore it is via boat or aircraft. 80% of the time we had anchorages and whole regions to ourselves. Around 50 private boats a year visit this area (along with a host of cruise ships and tour boats), so some areas indeed have traffic, but for the most part you find yourself enjoying solitude and peace. There is spectacular geolgy, wildlife, rock art, etc. But it is totally off the grid. If you are planning a visit there is much you can and should do in advance to make your time there as fruitful as possible.
