1 Welcome to Broome
Meet your Travel Director and fellow travellers in the former pearling outpost of Broome, and relax over a drink before dining in your resort’s bar and grill with its sweeping views of the Indian Ocean. (D) Stay: Cable Beach Club Resort, 2 nights
2 Broome Free Time
Today is yours to explore this tropical hideaway independently. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the pristine sands of Cable Beach and swim in its turquoise waters, or wander through Chinatown and shop for pearls. At nearby Gantheaume Point, dinosaur tracks are revealed in the beach’s red rocks at low tide. (B)
3 Broome – Fitzroy Crossing
Tour the city of Broome this morning before travelling on to Geikie Gorge for a scenic cruise on tranquil waters bordered by the gorge’s towering limestone walls. Watch for freshwater crocodiles, fruit-bats and wallabies, then continue your journey east to Fitzroy Crossing. (B/D) Stay: Fitzroy River Lodge
4 Fitzroy Crossing – Halls Creek
As you move on today through stunning landscapes, you’ll visit an art gallery with a chance to meet Indigenous artists. Continue to Halls Creek, a town rich in both Aboriginal and European history and culture. (B/L/D) Stay: Kimberley Hotel
5 Halls Creek – Emma Gorge
Today join a local Indigenous guide for a tour of the famous Argyle Diamond Mine, the world’s largest source of coloured diamonds. Travel on to Parry Lagoons Nature Reserve (weather permitting) to see vast flocks of egrets, herons, ibis, magpie geese and perhaps even a jabiru or lurking crocodile. In the afternoon, continue to your safari style tented cabin nestled in an oasis of native pandanus and palms in the El Questro Wilderness Park. (B/L/D) Stay: Emma Gorge Resort, Tented Cabin with private facilities, 2 nights
6 El Questro
Awake to the calls of native birds, and after a hearty breakfast, take a cruise on Chamberlain Gorge, an extensive waterhole fringed by tropical vegetation and soaring escarpments. Enjoy an afternoon at leisure, perhaps taking a dip in the pool, relaxing with a good book on your cabin’s veranda, or joining your Travel Director for a hike to Emma Gorge and a dip in its crystal-clear waterhole. (B/D)
7 Emma Gorge – Kununurra
This morning, travel on to Kununurra, the food bowl of WA. Take a guided tour of an Ord River rum distillery, and visit the historic Durack Homestead, built in 1895. Later, cruise along the Ord River, a permanent waterway that supports an abundance of native birds, marsupials and amphibians. Experience a magical sunset over the water before your arrival in Kununurra. (B/D) Stay: The Kimberley Grande, 2 nights
8 Kununurra
Today you may choose to take an optional experience early-morning scenic flight over the spectacular beehive-shaped towers of the Bungle Bungle Range or a full-day 4WD tour of the Bungle Bungles. If you don’t choose one of these, you’ll tour Kununurra, a hub for agriculture, tourism and mining. Dine this evening on locally-grown produce at a privately hosted Be My Guest dinner in the heart of Kununurra’s sandalwood plantations. (B/D)
9 Kununurra – Katherine
Witness the dramatic transformation of the landscape today as you journey to the north-east across vast pastoral leases and Aboriginal homelands into the river floodplains and grasslands of the Northern Territory’s stunning Top End. Later on you’ll meet Tom Curtain during his entertaining show at the Katherine Outback Experience. (B/D) Stay: Paraway Motel
10 Katherine – Darwin
This morning, travel to Nitmiluk National Park, where a tranquil cruise along the spectacular Katherine Gorge will allow you to sense the spirituality of the land. Catch glimpses of wildlife and learn about the history and culture of the local traditional owners, the Jawoyn people. Later, travel north along the Stuart Highway, stopping at Adelaide River’s poignant war cemetery. On arrival in Darwin, tour the sights of Australia’s only tropical State capital before joining your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Farewell Dinner overlooking the waterfront. (B/D) Stay: Mantra on the Esplanade

11 Day Wonders of the Kimberley reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“Wonders of the Kimberley”
- VIC, Australia Aug 2018 View Photo

I am very happy, firstly with Juliet from Global Journeys who managed all aspects of the tour including single supplement, on a rather late booking. This trip was all I dreamed and more, mainly from the way the tour was organised, and the many extras that were included, the cruises where on one we were treated to afternoon tea in the middle of nowhere. Another highlight was the quality of the accommodation, always the best that could be provided in this remote area. Vouchers for two free drinks each evening. ...read more

“An excellent way to see the sunburnt country!”
- ACT, Australia Jul 2018 View Photo

We were most impressed by both the tour director (Dave) and the driver (Stu). The information that was relayed to us by Dave along the way was invaluable in appreciating the top of Australia. We felt the pace was just right and the places we visited were clearly well researched by AAT Kings. The accommodation was just right and there were a few gems like El Questro. Dinners were buffet style and were of variable quality but most were acceptable and one (Halls Creek) was outstanding. Stu took great...read more

“Wonderful Kimberley's adventure ”
- QLD, Australia Aug 2017 1 Helpful Vote View Photo

We had the best trip thanks to AAT Kings and our wonderful Tour director Dave and Best bus driver Warren. They made our trip trouble free and everything ran to plan. They do a fantastic job and Daves knowledge is unbelievable. The places we stayed were wonderful and the food was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed the outback show in Katherine. The flight over the Bungle bungles was a special treat.

“Amazing trip of the Kimberley's”
- WA, Australia Aug 2016

I always wanted to do this trip and absolutely loved it. The tour was very well organised and guided. The food and accommodation very good, though I thought Fitzroy Crossing was pretty basic. I do realise it is a small town, so maybe a different stop could be considered. Our guide Liz and driver Warren were incredible and made all the difference to the trip, even serving up lovely morning/afternoon tea with bickies/ lamingtons etc.- I called them the " Gloria Jeans and Star Buck " duo. Thank...read more
