Why the Kimberley requires sustainable tourism

Russell Gueho has written two books about sustainable travel and sustainable enjoyment of wild places in the Kimberley. "Enjoy the Kimberley for its wilderness values, its unique flora and fauna and its geological and scenic wonders but most importantly enjoy the Kimberley for future generations - enjoy it sustainably."
Sustainable and indigenous tourism in Western Australia

In wilderness areas like the Kimberley, there are only so many tracks that can be made or so many tourists let into areas before the environment itself is devalued. Sustainable tourism knows its limits and should promote these ethics to its customers, the tourists themselves.
One of the advantages that Western Australia has over other parts of the country is that its Aboriginal culture is still quite strong, so there are still close links to the land and to family. In the Kimberley alone, there are over 50 micro businesses that are run by Indigenous people, the most notable of which is the multi award-winning Kooljaman Resort on Cape Leveque.
