The New York Times’ top travel list for 2013 is out and Western Australia’s remote Kimberley region is named as one of the best places in the world to visit.
The Kimberley was the only Australian destination to earn a place in the ‘Top 46′ list, taking out the number 19 spot.
Tim Neville from the New York Times writes (excerpts):
“Even by Australian standards, the Kimberley region is remote, with roughly 50,000 people living in an area larger than Germany.
“The area has long been largely off-limits to anyone without a yacht or the nerve to pilot a four-wheel drive through rocky riverbeds. Now luxury lodges have opened up the region to travelers willing to trade big bucks for land-based access to some spectacular spots.
“From any of these spots you can go fishing for barramundi, hike to sacred rock art sites, and take tours to towering waterfalls or up croc-infested estuaries to spy on wallabies and jabirus.”
