Description

Varying conditions throughout the year means that the Kimberley and its attractions are constantly changing! It is because of this, we do not provide a fixed, day-by-day itinerary. We prefer to provide details of the best possible tour, for the time you want to travel. We do fit in all the major attractions and many others, however the order or time spent in various places may change. Un-seasonal rain and road conditions can also affect the itinerary.

Tour Outline

At 6am we depart Broome in the direction of Darwin (this itinerary is reversed if you depart from Darwin). Get to know your fellow passengers, as we travel east along the Great Northern Highway to Derby and the beginning of the Gibb River Road. We visit Windjana Gorge and explore Tunnel Creek before setting up the first of our bush camps.

The next three days are spent exploring the rivers and gorges of the Gibb River Road. These include a variety of well-known and more seluded Gorges, like Lennard, Bell, Adcock, Galvans, Manning and Barnett River Gorges. We spend our time hiking, exploring, swimming and jumping into nature pools, camping under wide spread stars, in spectacular locations, and viewing ancient Aboriginal Wandjina and Bradshaw rock art.

Once you’ve seen it all on the Gibb River Road, we visit the Pentecost River, Cockburn Ranges and Emma Gorge (El Questro) before heading to Kununurra.

Unlike anything you’ve seen before, we make our way to Turkey Creek and Purnunulu National Park, home of the Bungle Bungles, where we let you explore Echidna Chasm and set up camp. Morning starts with a hike through Cathedral Gorge, the Beehive Domes and Piccaninny Creek, and for those always wanting more, we hit the airstrip for optional helicopter flights over the Bungle Bungles. These run for an optional, extra cost and are highly recommended!

After the Bungle Bungles it’s back into Kununurra and out to Lake Argyle where we spend the afternoon relaxing and swimming off our fantastic cruise boat, before setting up camp on an exclusive island on the lake. This is regularly voted one of the tour highlights. The next morning upon returning from the island, we leave Western Australia, and travel through Timber Creek in the Northern Territory before setting up camp on the Victoria River. On the last day we visit Katherine Hot Springs and have a swim at Edith Falls before travelling north through Adelaide River and arrive in Darwin in the early evening.
