The Kimberley, Western Australia

Photograph by Jeff Mauritzen

King George River cuts through the Kimberley, a region in Western Australia's wild northwest that's generally regarded as the country's last frontier. Hard to reach and challenging to explore, the Kimberley is an ancient plateau, dissected by deep gorges, craggy mountain strongholds, and bizarre sandstone formations.
