The Kimberley region of northern WA is one of the world’s great natural and Indigenous cultural regions. Its vast savannah landscapes, wild rivers, extensive wetlands, spectacular coast and rich marine environments provide a multitude of habitats that are home to an extraordinary diversity of species. Incredibly, the far north-west Kimberley sub-region is the only part of Western Australia, and one of very few in Australia, that appears to have retained its complete native fauna species diversity without extinction since European settlement.

Congratulations James Price Point, Broome and Australia! The Wilderness Society is excited and relieved by Woodside’s decision to pull out of the destructive gas hub project planned for James Price Point in the Kimberley.
