There are very few places in the world where you can enjoy fab­u­lous scenery, gourmet food, com­fort­able accom­mo­da­tion, spec­tac­u­lar fish­ing and ancient rock art com­bined with unpar­al­leled hos­pi­tal­i­ty in a remote wilder­ness loca­tion. Kim­ber­ley Coastal Camp is one of them.

A remote and lux­u­ri­ous sanc­tu­ary in the heart of the immense Kim­ber­ley wilder­ness, we are locat­ed on a small penin­su­lar in the Admi­ral­ty Gulf, in the extreme north west of Aus­tralia, rich with wildlife, indige­nous rock art and a land­scape that is quite sim­ply awe inspir­ing. The heart of Kim­ber­ley Coastal Camp is the Big House’. Hand built using recy­cled tim­ber with high raked ceil­ings, it is the ide­al place to share the day’s adven­tures, relax with a book from the library, enjoy great music, or just lis­ten to the gen­tle sound of the waves lap­ping on the shore. The swim­ming pool is the per­fect place to cool off after a day of dis­cov­er­ies and won­der at the stun­ning kalei­do­scope of colours found only in a Kim­ber­ley sun­set. Wild salt-water Bar­ra­mun­di straight from the ocean, suc­cu­lent oys­ters plucked from the rocks, deli­cious mud crabs tak­en from the man­grove lined creeks or seafood pael­la — our cui­sine takes inspi­ra­tion from the land and sea itself. Kim­ber­ley Coastal Camp has become famous for its delec­table gourmet meals. 

Head out on the water to drop a line to catch any­thing from Bar­ra­mun­di, Giant Treval­ly & Mack­er­el, lunch will be set up on an island, serv­ing the fresh caught fish ear­li­er in the day, cooked right on the waters edge, a glass of wine or cold beer to wash it down. A slow cruise back to camp (sight­see­ing, wildlife sight­ings) for a fresh­en up, a lit­tle relax­ing, a few drinks & nib­bles around the fire then enjoy a gourmet meal. All dietary require­ments are catered for. For those want­i­ng to expe­ri­ence catch­ing crabs, a tin­ny” will jour­ney up crab creek to try your hand at pot crab­bing. Sun­down­er drinks back at the camp & a crab feast set for a King & Queen!
