Itinerary

Arrive in Broome where we'll transfer you 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 fascinating journey commences. Stay: Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa, Broome (D)

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 Aboriginal site of great cultural significance.

Continue your journey along the iconic 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 the Gibb River Road to the extraordinary Tunnel Creek, a 750-metre-long natural tunnel carved through the Napier Range. 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.

Continue on to 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 a glimpse of the freshwater crocodiles. Back on the Gibb River Road, travel into the Wunaamin Miliwundi Range National Park, which covers more than 900,000 acres and features seven rugged ranges. Later, arrive at your lodge for dinner. Stay Two Nights: APT's exclusive Bell Gorge Wilderness Lodge (B/L/D)

Back on the Gibb River Road, travel to Bell Gorge, where stunning cliffs surround a series of tiered waterholes. Sitting approximately 300 metres above sea level, Bell Gorge is an idyllic natural spot for swimming and photography. Here you can also enjoy a spot of birdwatching. If you are feeling particularly energetic, you can hike to the lower pool of the gorge and take a relaxing dip below the cascading waterfall. (B/L/D)

Travel through the heart of Kimberley cattle country to discover some of the region's most secluded gorges. At Galvans Gorge, a short walk leads to a picturesque waterhole where boab trees cling to the escarpment above. Continue to beautiful Manning Gorge, where you'll enjoy lunch in the shade of paperbark trees. Look out for the region's birdlife and enjoy a refreshing swim in the pristine water. Turn off the Gibb River Road and travel north on the Kalumburu Road towards the isolated Mitchell Plateau. Later, arrive at Drysdale River Station and enjoy a unique stay at this historic cattle property, including a delicious dinner. Stay: Drysdale River Station (B/L/D)

Cross the beautiful Drysdale River, then ascend the Mitchell Plateau to enter a remote world of Livistona palm forests, beautiful lookouts, magnificent waterfalls and isolated swimming holes. For the next two nights, experience Mitchell Falls Wilderness Lodge, with its Ungolan Pavilion, where you can relax in the lounge, treat yourself to a drink or read up on the local culture. 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. For wildlife watchers, the region's fantastic array of bird life includes brolgas, herons, kites and sea eagles, as well as rainforest birds. This evening, you'll be treated to a superb three-course dinner that showcases the region's finest local produce. For the perfect accompaniment, a selection of flavoursome beers from Matso's Broome Brewery and wines from Rosabrook Estate are available. Stay Two Nights: APT's exclusive Mitchell Falls Wilderness Lodge (B/L/D)

Signature Experiences:
  • See ancient rock art during a visit to Wandjina and Bradshaw (Gwion Gwion) galleries.

Today you have a full day to discover the beauty of Mitchell Falls, with its magnificent waterfalls and Indigenous art. When available, local Aboriginal 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 Indigenous art. Continue to Big Mertens Falls before arriving at Mitchell Falls. You can swim in the pools above the falls and spot the region's abundant wildlife, amid superb scenery and rich culture. (B/L/D)

Signature Experiences:
  • Enjoy an included spectacular helicopter flight over Mitchell Falls and the surrounding area on the way back to your vehicle.

Rejoin the Gibb River Road and ford the mighty Durack River before arriving at Home Valley Station, an immense cattle property. Discover the spellbinding scenery that captivated audiences in Baz Luhrmann's movie “Australia”, including the imposing yet strikingly beautiful backdrop of the majestic Cockburn Range. Head to a superb viewing area as you savour this inspirational setting with sunset drinks, and gaze out to the ever-changing colours of the Cockburn Range as the sun retreats. Stay: Home Valley Station (B/L/D)

Cross the Pentecost River into El Questro, covering a staggering 700,000 acres. Tonight, absorb the serene surroundings before indulging in a delicious dinner with your fellow travellers. Stay: El Questro, Emma Gorge Resort (B/L/D)

Signature Experiences:
  • Head to Zebedee Springs, a permanent natural thermal spring tucked away in a secluded pocket of rainforest. Relax as you soak in the hot springs and leave feeling revitalised.

After a hearty breakfast, continue exploring remarkable El Questro. Hike to the picturesque Emma Gorge and take a revitalising swim. Afterwards, head to Wyndham and view the breathtaking Cambridge Gulf from the spectacular Five Rivers Lookout. Enjoy lunch at an iconic outback pub before visiting the serene Parry Lagoons, a splendid birdwatcher's paradise. Stay Two Nights: Kununurra Country Club Resort (B/L/D)

Explore the beauty of Kununurra this morning at leisure before travelling to majestic Lake Argyle, the largest man-made lake in the Southern Hemisphere. Join a spectacular wildlife cruise on the mighty Ord River. From modern shaded vessels, discover a fascinating ecological system that has developed from the damming of the Ord River at two locations to create an area rich in wildlife, flora and undeniable beauty. Enjoy a BBQ dinner as you watch a mesmerising sunset while cruising on tranquil Lake Kununurra. (B/L/D)

Depart Kununurra and journey to Purnululu National Park, one of Australia's most stunning natural landscapes. The park is home to the famed black and orange striped domes of the Bungle Bungle Range, 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. Join a hike along a Livistona palm-fringed trail into Echidna Chasm, a spectacular natural cleft in the rock.

Settle into the tranquil ambience of the Bungle Bungle Wilderness Lodge, located in the heart of this stunning national park. Enjoy a delicious dinner and share your adventures with your fellow travellers. Stay Two Nights: APT's exclusive Bungle Bungle Wilderness Lodge (B/L/D)

Explore the magic of Purnululu for yourself and discover the depth of the Bungle Bungle Range. Walk along Piccaninny Creek, a winding gorge within the Bungle Bungle domes. Your next stop is the natural amphitheatre of Cathedral Gorge, a spacious cavern where the acoustics are astounding. Marvel at the majestic beehive domes as your guide brings the natural history of the range to life. You may like to experience an optional scenic helicopter flight over the domes (own expense). (B/L/D)

Signature Experiences:
  • Enjoy drinks as you take in a sensational sunset over the striking Bungle Bungle massif.

Head to Halls Creek and admire the unusual China Wall. A natural quartz formation that runs six kilometres along the landscape, the wall is an echo of the Great Wall of China, after which it was named. Continue on towards Fitzroy Crossing, a small settlement situated on the Fitzroy River. Stay: Fitzroy River Lodge, Fitzroy Crossing (B/L/D)

Travel to Danggu Geikie Gorge National Park and board a unique cruise. Flooding of the river has bleached the walls white over time – an intriguing sight that makes it popular with photographers. Return to Broome and later this evening, perhaps enjoy a drink before your Farewell Dinner at the Sunset Bar and Grill. Stay: Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa, Broome (B/L/D)

Discover the delights of Cable Beach Resort and Spa as you enjoy your day at leisure. Perhaps relax on the beach, enjoy a free art and history tour, or take an early morning Yoga session. Later, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight home. (B)

We were able to really get a feel for the Kimberley    1 , NSW, Australia, Aug 2017
The trip was excellent. We were able to really get a feel for the Kimberley. Food on the trip was excellent - better in the lodges than even Cable Beach. Walks were a little challenging due to terrain but always rewarded with a wonderful swim. A little downtime at the wilderness lodges would have been great but not at the expense of seeing all the sights.
