Along Australia’s Great Northern Highway — Karijini to Broome

Australia’s Great Northern Highway is one of the planet’s great thoroughfares.  Winding its way from the west coast of the state of Western Australia, inland through the Pilbara and north to the Kimberley, it offers up a mosaic of starkly contrasting coastal, desert, bush and red rock landscapes.

This Destination features several of its most alluring attractions including the see-it-to-believe-it Karijini National Park in the Pilbara region, the much-loved port of Broome on the northwest coast of WA, and the remote, remarkable Dampier Peninsula, home to the orange cliffs of Cape LevequeKarijini National Park is a sight to behold.  Precipitous canyons slice through the Park creating a wonderland of chasms, waterfalls and swimming holes. The road north to Broome is lined with scintillating yet deserted Indian Ocean beaches bleached blond by a blazing tropical sun.  Broome’s world-famous Cable Beach is the site for spotting camel caravans at sunset, while the entire peninsula is a canvas of contrasting colors with vermilion cliffs plunging down to the teal and turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.   Further north, the Dampier Peninsula may be the place to be to watch a glorious sundown – but further east along the Great Northern, gigantic termite mounds and breathtaking Baobabs or Boabs make for show stopping vistas around every corner.
