KPP Business Development

Berkeley River Project

An extraordinarily ambitious project, the Berkeley River opened to vsitors in April 2012.


The land lease is held by the Jiamiddie Aboriginal Corporation who had been trying to develop the site for over a decade. KPP helped Jiamiddie secure a development partnership with Kimberley Accommodation’s Martin & Kim Pierson-Jones; instigated heritage clearance requirements; prepared EPA approval submissions; worked with the Kimberley Land Council on the Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) and continues to work with Jiamiddie Corporation members in enterprise development and training.


Twenty luxury villas are perfectly positioned along a 65-metre-high dune to command 180-degree panoramas sweeping from Joseph Bonaparte Gulf to Reveley Island, or from the mouth of the Berkeley River to its rugged red gorges beyond.


This greenfields site is approximately 4 hours by boat from Wyndham and just over an hour by seaplane. There is no road into the region which will provide visitors an unique Kimberley experience. From 2015, visitors will also be able to access the Resort by light plane, directly from Darwin.
