Kimberley During the Wet Tour

Unlike the south of Australia, the Kimberley doesn’t experience the four distinct seasons of summer, autumn, winter and spring. Instead, we have The Wet and The Dry. Most folk come up here during the Dry season (May to around September) when the weather is mild, mostly dry and there’s almost nothing to interrupt a holiday.

During The Wet, however, from around December to the beginning of April, the Kimberley gets 90 per cent of its yearly rainfall and it rolls in with big, thundering storms. Coupled with the top end heat, it keeps the crowds away for the locals and a few hardy visitors to enjoy.
