About us & more
Who are we?
Best Of The Kimberley commenced operations in Broome, Western Australia in 1999. The company was based in, and operated from, Broome until November 2012, when the current owners relocated to North-East Victoria for family reasons. Although our location is many miles from the Kimberley, we have over 20 years experience of living and working in Broome and we regularly travel through the region. With our long established connections, Best Of The Kimberley can plan your holiday and with our knowledge and experience, we will leave nothing to chance when arranging your itinerary.
Our Director and Senior Consultant, Rosemary McGuigan, has worked in the Kimberley tourism industry since 1998 - including being part owner and operator of Broome Weddings and Kimberley Events Management for 10 years. In October 2004 she, and her then business partner, purchased Best Of The Kimberley from the original owner. In July 2009, Rosemary took over full ownership and operation of Best Of The Kimberley.
We regularly visit and travel in the Kimberley to keep up with any changes, and take tours, stay in accommodation and self drive hire vehicles throughout the region, so we experience what you will experience.
Why deal with us?
We are a small, family owned business that is Australian owned and operated. When you call us, you will deal with the same consultant each time. This gives us the chance to develop a strong understanding of what your travel requirements are. We pride ourselves in the personal attention we provide to all of our clients; whether it be for just a single tour booking or arranging an extensive itinerary. This is what sets us apart from general retail travel agents; we specialise in areas that we know intimately!
Best Of The Kimberley does not arrange flights as over many years we have found that our clients prefer to arrange their own to suit their personal arrangements. However, we do work closely with other travel industry colleagues who can arrange flights if you require assistance.
Travel Agent Accreditation
From 1 July 2014, the licensing of travel agents ceased around Australia. Now it is more important than ever for consumers to ensure that they are dealing with reliable, reputable and honest travel agents. Having met certain criteria to ensure a professional service is provided, we are accredited through the Tourism Council of Western Australia and the new ATAS (Australian Travel Agent Accreditation Scheme).

Best Of The Kimberley is a member of the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA Accreditation Number A10502).
