​​​​Welcome to the Kimberley Emergency Management District portal

 

The Kimberley District is a remote and sparsely populated area with extensive pristine areas covering 424,517km2.

The population of the Kimberley, numbering approximately 40,​000, is considered to be culturally diverse. Approximately 50 per cent of the population is made up of over 60 different Aboriginal language groups.

The Kimberley has a sub-tropical climate characterised by a 'dry' and a 'wet' season with most activity occurring in the dry season from May until October.

The Shires of Broome, Halls Creek, Derby-West Kimberley and Wyndham-​East Kimberley are the four Local Governments that operate within the district.

The district economy is diverse and includes tourism, agriculture - pastoral, ​fishing - aquaculture, mining, energy, construction and retail. The district's​ gross regional product is approximately $3.2 billion per annum.

Natural and man-made hazard events occur throughout the region.​ The identified priority hazards (as identified​ by the State Risk Project) include:​​ Bushfire, Cyclone, Flood, Human Epidemic and Road Transport Emergency.
