"Interesting place but miles from nowhere"

Situated in the Kimberly region, Wyndham is WA’s most northerly town and is an important port. The town has around 800 residents and has some amazing scenery. The port plays an important role for the handling of export cattle, nitrate used in the Argyle Diamond mines as well as fuels and other goods leaving and entering the Kimberley. Real estate prices here are average and still affordable by most people although rentals are scarce. There is good shopping with supermarkets, convenience stores etc. the town has a district school which caters for students from K-12 as well as a catholic school and a TAFE campus. There is a medical centre and a local hospital. Wyndham has an indoor recreation centre, public swimming pool and a golf course as well as playing fields and a number of sporting clubs and associations. There are many spectacular sights around this area including El Questro Station, Diggers rest station and the Parry Creek Wildlife Reserve. The climate here is very tropical with a monsoon season each summer and cyclones possible during cyclone season.

"Five Rivers Lookout"

Wyndham is a Kimberley town with an almost total aboriginal population. Houses are modest and some are maintained better than others. The small group of shops is handy for locals and travellers alike, and the huge model of a saltwater crocodile in the park in front of the shops is worth a photo, but beware of hawkers. The hairpin drive up to Five Rivers Lookout is worth the effort, but watch out for tourist coaches hogging the road.
