The Kimberley is one of the last great wilderness areas left on our planet, and has been taken care of for millennia by one of the world’s most ancient living cultures.

The Kimberley region is famous for its vast, pristine nature, intertwined with the world’s most ancient culture. The Kimberley boasts vibrant coral reefs, rugged gorges and boundless free-flowing rivers, enveloped in a culture which deeply connects people to country and is home to some of the oldest living rock art on Earth. The trip is a time for immersing yourself, listening and learning about the region, its people and their culture. Check out the heartfelt video from the Kimberley Custodian Supporter Trip in 2018 to gain insight into what the trip involves and previous supporters' reflections of their trip.
