When to Travel
The Kimberley region, like other tropical areas of Australia has just two seasons which are known as The Wet and The Dry.
The optimal time to visit Halls Creek is in the Dry season from mid April to mid October.
The temperatures are mild and the humidity low. You can almost be guaranteed of there being no rain and the skies are a bright clear blue much of the time. The night skies are superb for star gazing and offer great viewing of any comets etc. that may be passing.
The area is at its busiest during June and July which are the coolest months.
The build up to The Wet (usually October and November) can become quite hot and humid with daily maximum temperatures climbing over 40 degrees celsius. By planning your days carefully, with early morning starts, resting during the middle of the day, before venturing out again late in the afternoon you will be rewarded with a quite different perspective of the area. The sunsets are at their best and you may get to see some magnificent natural light shows in the sky as the storm clouds roll in accompanied by the lightning. Most locals will tell you that their favourite time of year is once the Wet arrives which can happen in December but usually January as the rain is welcome relief from the recent heat. This is also the time that many of the local swimming holes and waterfalls are rejuvenated.
Some operations do close over the Wet season as some access roads become impassable so if you have a particular must see attraction it is advisable to check that it will be accessible.
