Enjoy a morning tea break by the Fitzroy River and visit the Derby 'Boab Prison Tree' and Mowanjum Aboriginal Art and Cultural Centre. Continue along the Gibb River Road.

Tonight, settle into your first night under the Kimberley night sky. (L/D)

Rise and shine! Head for Bell Gorge early this morning.

If you’d like to see the lake from a different perspective, there are also scenic flights available, or you may like to round of the day with a fabulous sunset boat cruise. (B/L)

After a leisurely morning, head south down the Great Northern Highway to Purnululu National Park, home of the magnificent Bungle Bungle Range. Spend the next two nights in a private safari camp in the heart of the park, with glorious views of the Bungle Bungle Range. Today, you will have time to begin exploring the area, including the famous ‘beehive domes’. (B/L/D)

Explore Echidna Chasm on a roughly two-kilometre walk. Next, take another short walk of roughly three kilometres into Cathedral Gorge, where towering rocks create a natural amphitheatre. There's time in the afternoon to take an optional scenic flight and enjoy a birds-eye view of the beehive domes (approximately AUD 379 per person) to put it all into perspective. Otherwise, you can relax at camp or keep exploring on the ground. (B/L/D)

Amazing tour through the Kimberleys WA. 0 , WA, Australia, Sep 2021
We had a wonderful time in Western Australia’s Kimberley. Our tour guides were gracious, fun and went out of their way to make sure that every person on the tour had a great experience. Highly recommend this tour! It is challenging, the walks/ climbs/ clambers into the Gorges were at times difficult, but the guides did everything possible to help us ...read more through. Evenings spent around the table, over a glass of wine, and the meals that were provided was just delicious and the variety outstanding. Thank you Wild Kimberley, it was the tour of a life time. The mix of people were wonderful and we all got on extremely well, considering the length of the tour and we all came away very good friends. Georgie and the team at Global Journeys were extremely prompt in answering all our queries and made the booking so easy. Thank you Global Journeys, Intrepid and Wild Kimberley for a once in a lifetime experience.
Great trip through the Kimberleys 0 , NSW , Australia, Jul 2019
All in all - great trip, no complaints. Expectations meet. Some of my bucket list things ticked. The guide-driver & cook were really nice people. Enjoyed them heaps. Experienced, knowledgeable about the area, and the food was really good and plentiful. All the staff at the Travellers Lodge in Broome were also at their best to make sure I was happy with ...read more everything. Luckily we had a nice bunch of people in the group. Where some of the travellers did more than their fair share of work to make it a success. Itinerary was full on as expected. Lots of walking and climbing into various gorges. Swimming holes, cruises, scenery, sunsets etc were all great. My best was flying over the Bungle Bungles and the water cruises. Staying in the "permanent" tents at caravan parks was a bonus and made it that little bit easier and enjoyable after a long day of activities. Staying 2 nights at the one place a couple of times was great too - just not have to pack up every day. Thanks for making my booking - stay - trip etc so easy. Loved it. Had the best time.
