Itinerary

Expand All
1 Broome
You can arrive any time today. An airport transfer is included if you advise us of your flight arrival. Spend the afternoon exploring at your leisure: Broome is one of the most interesting outback towns in Australia. From the age of the dinosaurs and the ancient stories of local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to the region's role in early global exploration and the flourishing south sea pearl industry, this cultural melting pot has many a tale to tell. In the evening, get to know your fellow travellers at a Welcome Dinner, while we prepare for the adventure that lies ahead. (D)
2 Tunnel Creek
It's an early start this morning, as you leave Broome when the sun begins to rise. While travelling through the remote Kimberley landscape, your guide shares stories of local history, people and the environment. Enjoy a morning tea break by the Fitzroy River and visit the Derby 'Boab Prison Tree' and Mowanjum Aboriginal Art and Cultural Centre, before hitting the Gibb River Road. The afternoon is devoted to exploring Tunnel Creek with your local Bunuba guide. In this 750-metre cave system carved through the Napier Range, discover stalactites, secret caves and a large variety of wildlife. It's here you'll also learn the legend of Jandamarra, an Aboriginal freedom fighter who used the tunnel as a hide-out in the late 1800s. From here you'll travel to Windjana Gorge in time to set up camp and go for a walk down to the gorge itself where you'll be able to spot a number of freshwater crocodiles and enjoy the sunset over the Napier Range. Tonight, settle into your first night under the Kimberley night sky. (B/L/D)
3 Bell Gorge & Mt Barnett Station
First thing this morning we head off for Bell Gorge, a hidden highlight of the West Kimberleys. This idyllic retreat, considered the most beautiful in the area, boasts cascading waterfalls and crystal clear pools formed over millions of years - an easy place to while away a few hours! We'll then travel slowly along the Gibb River Road exploring the beautiful and ancient King Leopold Range on the way to our camp by the Manning River. (B/L/D)
4 Mt Barnett Station
Spend today swimming in paradise. Cross the Manning River and hike through the rugged wilderness of the King Leopold Ranges to arrive at the stunning Manning Falls. Amid the rugged beauty of Manning Falls swim in the deep clear pool, discover Aboriginal rock art and look out for wildlife on the edges of the water. Overnight we camp on Mt Barnett Cattle Station. (B/L/D)
5 El Questro Station
This morning we drive the back end of the Gibb River Road. An absolutely magical drive out of the King Leopold Ranges and into the Pentecost Range. We'll stop at a stunning ookout over the high flat mesas of the Cockburn Range with the Pentecost River snaking its way past the mountains out to the sea. We'll drive down to the Pentecost River for an iconic photograph before driving across the river. Shortly after our river crossing we'll arrive in the scenic El Questro Wilderness Park where we'll set up in our permanent camp for two nights. (B/D)
6 El Questro Station
Enjoy a full free day at El Questro today. Take the time for a refreshing dip in the Zebedee Springs and walk into Emma Gorge or join an optional cruise on Chamberlain Gorge. Maybe sample a local bush tucker walk or a bird watching tour. There are plenty of optional activities. Otherwise kick back and choose to simply explore this beautiful wilderness park at your own leisure. (B/L/D)
7 Kununurra
Emerge from the Gibb River Road for a few hours free time in Kununurra. In the afternoon, travel onto the shores of the expansive Lake Argyle, the heart of the Ord River Irrigation System which has transformed this dry region into a lush agricultural oasis. Visit the historic Durack Homestead Museum or take on one of the many bush trails to explore the area. (B/L)
8 Purnululu National Park (The Bungle Bungles)
After a leisurely morning, head south down the Great Northern Highway to Purnululu National Park, home of the magnificent Bungle Bungle Range. Two nights here, staying overnight in the new private Bungle Bungle Safari Camp in the heart of the Park, the only camp in the national park to overlook the Bungle Bungle Range. This allows a full day to explore the highlights of this extraordinary National Park, the most famous of which, are the ‘beehive domes'. (B/L/D)
9 Purnululu National Park (The Bungle Bungles)
Unbelievably, nobody but the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people knew of the Bungle Bungles until the early 1980s; once discovered by outsiders, the area was made a national park in 1987. Explore Echidna Chasm (2 km), known for its towering Livistonia Palm trees, and take a short walk (2-3 km) into Cathedral Gorge, where towering rocks create a natural amphitheatre. There's time in the afternoon to take an optional scenic flight and enjoy an optional birds-eye view of the beehive domes (approximately AUD 379 per person) to put it all into perspective. (B/L/D)
10 Fitzroy Crossing
En route to Fitzroy Crossing, break the long journey with a visit to the gold rush town of Halls Creek to see the remarkable China Wall. You'll also enjoy lunch at Mary Pool and visit the remote Laarri Aboriginal Art Gallery, before an evening by the Fitzroy River at Fitzroy Crossing. (B/L/D)
11 Geikie Gorge - Broome
A morning cruise through the majestic Geikie Gorge is a great start to your last day. Nature carved this wonder through the Napier Range during the Devonian geological period. Learn of the fascinating geology and discover the huge array of wildlife, including freshwater crocodiles, birds and fish. Explore Old Fitzroy Crossing and enjoy lunch by the river before returning to Broome. (B/L/D)
12 Broome
As the adventure draws to an end, it is time to bid farewell to the Kimberley. If you are departing on a flight today, an airport transfer is included. Alternatively, you may have booked into one of Broome's many resorts for a little luxury following your intrepid experience in the Kimberley wilderness – there is plenty more of Broome to explore and experience!

“Great trip through the Kimberleys”
- 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 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...read more
