Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley (map), is located in the ruggedly picturesque and sparsely populated northeast corner of Western Australia, stretching from the Northern Territory border to the northern most tip of Western Australia.
The Shire covers an area of 121,000 square kilometres and is one of four local governments that make up the Kimberley region. The Shire includes the towns of Kununurra and Wyndham and there are also a number of Aboriginal Communities; the largest being Kalumburu, which is situated in the northern part of the Shire.
The resource sector plays a big part in the local economy, particularly the Argyle Diamond Mine. The Shire is geographically closer to Asia than the Western Australia capital, Perth. Its close proximity to the major northern port of Darwin makes it more economically viable to export Shire products to Asian markets through Darwin than within Western Australia. Recent growth in mineral and live cattle exports have also generated growth at Wyndham Port. The Shire also attracts many tourists.
