Discover the real Australia: Western Australia, the real home of Australia the movie.
In September 2007, Western Australia welcomed film making legend Baz Luhrmann and Hollywood stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman to the magnificentKimberley region to shoot scenes for Australia the movie.
The red and rugged landscape of the east Kimberley will feature strongly in this epic romantic adventure movie set around the bombing of Darwin in the Second World War.
Kununurra, which means 'big water' in the local Aboriginal language, is the gateway to the east Kimberley - one of the world's last true wilderness areas and the place to go for a real Australian outback adventure experience.
Journey into red-earth country on a four-wheel drive adventure, take a scenic flight over extraordinary rock formations and magnificent waterfalls, or cruise through the inland waterways that permeate the region.
