The Derby Visitor Centre has a wealth of very important information, being situated in a very remote part of Australia it is a must to stop by before heading out onto the Gibb River Road, they have all the do's and don'ts for that, as well as a magnificant building full of Kimberley souvenirs, they also sell tours, and a definate must do is at least a scenic flight over the Buccaneer Archipeligo, if not the Horizontal Falls 6 hr tour or overnight, be prepared to pay for it though its not cheap but WILL be one of the best things you've ever done, and being very popular you do need to book ahead by around 7- 10 days. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

Thanks so much for your lovely review! We are very proud of our fabulous building, and glad you enjoyed all the information in the building!
And yes the Horizontal Falls is expensive, but a once in a lifetime experience as you said.
Thanks again!

The new Derby Visitor Centre is an example of what can be done with careful planning and cooperation. The displays are first rate wetting visitors appetites for more of the beauty of the Kimberleys.

Great displays, cool (temp) very helpful staff and a MUST to book flights to see the area.

In busy holiday seasons book such things as flights well ahead - they DO get booked out days or weeks in advance - so you will need luck on your side if you just 'blow into town' and expect to get a flight when it suits you
