Western Australia: The Kimberley’s spectacular, record-breaking wet season in photos

The Kimberley has experienced its wettest summer on record, with regions like Kununurra receiving double their usual rainfall and Lake Argyle overflowing.

A whopping 944mm of rain fell across the Kimberley during December, January and February. This is more than double the region's seasonal average of 452mm, and washes away the previous record of 787mm set in 1996-97, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

As a result, the region's spectacular landscapes are awash, with heavy waterfalls across the region.

Photographer and Instagrammer Sean Scott recently travelled to the region to capture the dramatic landscapes. The gallery above offers a first look at the stunning images captured by the photographer.
