The Kimbrley Region.

The Kimberley region is one of the six state and two territory of West Australia, situated in the most northern part of the state and extends for 423.517 km for a population about 41.000 peoples. The Northside is on the Timor Sea, at Westside on the Indian Ocean, and the Eastside borders with the North Territory. Fascinating to know that the Kimberley was the First part of Australia where are settled humans, and the first arrivals found attest them date back from 40.000 years ago from today Asia. Instead, the first European was Alexander Forrest arrived in 1879.
In the Kimberley, there are mountain ranges ancient and steep, and the extreme climate removes all the soil leaving only rock except in the valleys of the rivers Ord and Fitzroy at South. The climate is tropical, and the 90% of rain occur from November until April, and the cyclone are not rare most in Broome. The most of the Kimberley region is the cover of Savaniche zone where you can see lots of Boab tree.
In some gorges sheltered from the rain can be found surprising rainforest. The economy of the Kimberley is based on the Diamond mine of the Argyle Lake and Ellendale, the agriculture, tourism and a thriving industry linked to the cultivation of Pearls.
