Hunter River, Western Australia, Australia

The Hunter River, with its intertwining waterways and verdant floodplains, is a testament to nature's artistry and power. Originating from the high rainfall catchments of the Kimberley Plateau, the river snakes its way through an ancient landscape dotted with towering sandstone cliffs and lush mangrove forests. The raw terrain with its rich ochre hues, contrasts sharply with the emerald green of the vegetation and the crystal-clear blue waters of the river. Herds of saltwater crocodiles bask on the sun-drenched banks, while a diverse range of bird species dance across the sky, their vibrant plumage glinting in the sunlight.

From here, enjoy access to Mitchell River National Park, one of Kimberley's two national parks. The park lies in some of the most remote and inaccessible country in Australia, and contains some of the region's scenic jewels.
