“21 days Untamed Kimberley and West Coast.”
- NSW, Australia Aug 2018 4 Helpful Votes

We have just returned from a 21 day tour of the Kimberley and West Coast with AAT Kings. We were very fortunate to have Liz as our Tour Director.

If you choose to travel with AAT Kings and encounter Liz and Darren on your tour you will have an amazing holiday!
