TIDES & WEATHER
The Kimberley has a tropical monsoon climate. We do not have a summer or winter here, just wet and dry season. During the dry season, you can expect cooler days and breezy nights. Inland temperatures at night can get very cold. In the wet season the humidity increases and cyclones form offshore. This is still a great time to visit our region for lightning shows and pumping waterfalls!
Huge tides are just a part of everyday life on the Kimberley coast having the biggest tidal movements in the southern hemisphere. On spring tides the difference between high and low tides is up to 10 metres. Whether it's fishing, boating, pearling or having a swim at the beach, you have to know what the tides are doing or risk finding that the sea isn't where you need it. Low tides offer the best chance to see dinosaur footprints, the flying boat wrecks and the staircase to the moon.
