Kimberley Coast Flora
The majority of the Kimberley’s flora is part of open savannah woodland that encircles Kimberley’s sandstone gorges and beautifully surrounds the coast.
The most abundant trees in Kimberley include the iconic Boabs and low Corymbia (also known as Bloodwood) trees. Eucalyptus trees can be found in abundance around the Kimberley’s wetlands and estuaries also.
Ord Valley, the Kimberley’s most fertile area, is home to grassland with numerous grass species and a spectacular variety of vegetation that grows alongside the banks of Ord River.
Numerous plant species found in the Kimberley’s sandstone gorges and in remote pockets along the coast were unknown to botanists until very recently, and scientists believe that the land still has quite a few more botanical secrets to uncover.
Several sheltered sandstone gorges in the north of the Kimberley house rare patches of monsoon forests thanks to their high rainfall. These rare and unique spots of tropical forest are among the most florally rich and diverse parts of Australia.
The trip was outstanding and I would have happily turned around and done it all again.Ken M., Western Australia - Kimberley Coast, 2016
This was the realisation of a long held dream of seeing the Kimberley Coastal/River regions. That the trip exceeded expectations is thanks entirely to Aurora's planning and personnel.Richard G., Kimberley Coast, 2015
I could not speak more highly of Chris and Alasdair. Their knowledge and experience was wonderful and I don't think other tours could match them. A wonderful experience for us all.Tim L., Australia - Kimberley Coast, 2016
