Sport and recreation in the Kimberley has its own unique characteristics.
Hot summers, warm winters and the region's natural attractions mean outdoor recreation such as water skiing, fishing, camping, four-wheel driving and boating are popular.
Sports depend on the community organising and supporting their own activities. Large distances between communities often make competitions between towns limited.
Passive and active recreation pursuits such as walking, art and crafts, gardening, genealogy and drama are well supported.
The department works closely with a range of stakeholders in the Kimberley region. These include local governments, the Kimberley Development Commission, State Government agencies and not-for-profit organisations.
