The Kimberley region of Western Australia experiences harsh weather extremes between the wet and dry seasons. Flooding and extreme weather can cause delays to occur. Be sure to carry (at ALL times) a supply of fresh water and suitable food as well as extra tyres.
During the wet season, road conditions within Broome and the Kimberley region can change dramatically (over a short period of time) making some roads inaccessible at short notice. Floods occur quickly with heavy rainfall along the roads, and can wash out floodways, making them very dangerous for both experienced and inexperienced drivers. Always follow the safety advice and if a road is closed, or appear to be dangerous, don't risk it! High clearance 4WD’s recommended on all unsealed roads.
