1 Arrive Broome
Arrive in Broome and be transferred to your hotel. Enjoy your day at leisure to explore this fascinating place. Head to the Sunset Bar and Grill at your resort to see one of Australia’s best sunsets over Cable Beach. This evening, enjoy a Welcome Dinner before your journey commences. Stay: Broome, Cable Beach Club Resort & Spa (D)
2 Gibb River Road, Windjana Gorge, Tunnel Creek
Your day starts with a visit to the fascinating Boab Prison Tree. Believed to be more than 1,500 years old and measuring an incredible 14 metres in diameter, this remarkable tree was once used by early police patrols as a standing point for prisoners as they were walked to Derby. Today, the hollow tree is a registered Indigenous site of great cultural significance. Continue your journey along the Gibb River Road, a remote 660-kilometre outback highway stretching between Broome and Kununurra. The ‘Gibb’ traverses the wild heart of the Kimberley, passing spectacular landscapes of intensely coloured ranges, dramatic gorges, deep rock pools and spectacular waterfalls. Turn off to Bandilngan Windjana Gorge National Park to visit Windjana Gorge, where sheer cliffs tower above glistening white sands. Admire the ancient marine fossils embedded in the gorge walls and scour the banks for freshwater crocodiles. Continue on to Dimalurru Tunnel Creek National Park and explore Tunnel Creek. With torch in hand, wade through the cool waters that fill the tunnel and emerge on the other side to the sight of a tranquil and stunning oasis. Later, arrive at Fitzroy Crossing. Stay: Fitzroy Crossing, Fitzroy River Lodge (B/L/D)
3 Geikie Gorge, Halls Creek, Purnululu National Park
Travel to Danggu Geikie Gorge National Park and explore magnificent Geikie Gorge. Flooding of the river has bleached the walls white over time - an intriguing sight that makes it popular with photographers. Board a unique cruise along the stunning gorge and learn more about the beautiful flora and fauna of this spectacular region. Enjoy a visit to Halls Creek, before travelling to the World Heritage-listed Purnululu National Park. Experience the first of three APT exclusive Wilderness Lodges as you settle into the tranquil ambience of the Bungle Bungle Wilderness Lodge, located in the heart of this stunning national park. Enjoy a delicious dinner with your fellow guests tonight. Stay Two Nights: Bungle Bungle Wilderness Lodge (B/L/D)
4 Purnululu National Park, Piccaninny Creek, Cathedral Gorge
Explore the magic of Purnululu National Park for yourself and discover the depth of the Bungle Bungle Range. The park is home to the famed black and orange striped domes, ascending to 578 metres above sea level. Standing over a grass-covered plain, steep cliffs form the western face. Created by the constant erosion of river movements over a staggering 20 million years, the range has both geological and Indigenous cultural significance. It is an imposing sight and one that you are sure to remember forever. Take a walk along Piccaninny Creek, a winding gorge within the unique orange and black striped domes. Marvel at the majestic beehive domes as your guide brings the natural history of the range to life. Your next stop is the natural amphitheatre of Cathedral Gorge, a spacious cavern where the acoustics are astounding. You may like to experience an optional scenic helicopter flight over the domes (own expense). This evening, enjoy drinks as the sun sets over the striking dome formations of the iconic Bungle Bungle massif. (B/L/D)

Signature Experiences:
  • After a day’s exploration of the Bungle Bungle Range, enjoy drinks as the sun sets over the striking beehive domes.

Along the way, stop at Drysdale River Station for lunch. Afterwards, enter a remote world of Livistona palm forests, beautiful lookouts, magnificent waterfalls and isolated swimming holes. For the next two nights, experience APT’s Mitchell Falls Wilderness Lodge, with its impressive Ungolan Pavilion. In the heart of the Mitchell Plateau, your accommodation is perfectly positioned beside the Pandanus palm-fringed Camp Creek, where you can enjoy a refreshing dip. Perhaps unwind as the sun sets, then later this evening, be treated to a tantalising dinner that showcases the region’s finest local produce. For the perfect accompaniment to your meal, a election of flavoursome beers from Matso’s Broome Brewery and wines from Rosabrook Estate are available for purchase. Stay Two Nights: Mitchell Falls Wilderness Lodge (B/L/D)
10 Mitchell Falls
Today you have a full day to discover the beauty of Mitchell Falls, with its magnificent tiered waterfalls and Indigenous rock art. When available, local Indigenous guides will join the adventure, imparting their knowledge of the area and sharing their cultural beliefs. Begin with a guided hike to Little Mertens Falls to view rarely seen rock art. Continue to Big Mertens Falls before arriving at the incredible Mitchell Falls. Enjoy the superb scenery as you swim in the pools above the falls, spotting some of the region’s abundant wildlife. Take an included helicopter flight over Mitchell Falls and the surrounding wilderness back to your 4WD vehicle (or if you prefer, hike back with your guide). Longer helicopter flights over this captivating and remote coastline are available at an additional expense. Later, it’s time to return to your wilderness lodge to relax, and enjoy a gourmet dinner.

“Spectacular Scenery, Bumpy Roads.”
- NSW, Australia Jul 2018

This holiday went well. We were surprised at how early we had to book to secure a place, but Jemma from Global Journeys made it all happen including a one dayer to Horizontal Falls, which we would recommend as the APT tour doesn't go there. Our flights, accommodation and tours all melded nicely together resulting in a hassle-free holiday, thanks to Jemma.
A lot of the 3200 km of driving was on unsealed roads and the corrugations were significant. We went through quite...read more

“15 day trip through the Kimberley”
- NSW, Australia Jul 2018 2 Helpful Votes View Photo

Accommodation in Broome was really good - only thing that needs to be put right was there was no mini bar in the rooms the APT groups were accommodated in. When I enquired at the front desk, they had no idea. The APT trip was very good, most accommodation was excellent. The Lodge at the Bungle Bungles needs to be upgraded, it was VERY cold in the tents and overnight temperatures were down to 0 degrees. The information booklet didn’t mention how cold it could get. The eating area was all open to...read more

“Kimberley complete ”
- Germany May 2018 1 Helpful Vote

Accommodation at all APT lodges was very good, nice staff. Food was overall very good. The wildlife cruise on Ord river was sensational, we could have done without the Wyndham trip, and Zebedee springs were a bit disappointing. All walks have been great, especially Echidna Chasm, Bungle Bungle walk, Emma Gorge, and Bell Gorge. Too much driving from Home Valley Station to Mitchell Falls Wilderness Lodge. All in all a great experience with a great bunch of people.

“We loved all of it”
- TAS, Australia Aug 2017 1 Helpful Vote

We loved all of it. A highlight was the Tunnel Creek walk, with the assistance of two indigenous guides. They did a great job. The trip went without a hitch, except for one flat tyre. Not bad for 20 of us.

“Our Kimberley tour was exceptional.”
- QLD, Australia Jul 2017 4 Helpful Votes View Photo

Our Kimberley tour was exceptional. The area is stunning with fabulous rivers, waterfalls, scenery and weather. The accommodation and tour arrangements generally were great, meals very good although we put on a bit of weight. Walking in to some of the brilliant spots was a bit taxing but most definitely worthwhile to see such marvellous sites. We have traveled to places around the world, but would recommend the Kimberley trip to anyone who wishes to see some of the most magnificent places in the...read more
