12 Day Kimberley Adventurer Itinerary
Departing Broome, your coach travels along the Great Northern Highway and across the mighty Fitzroy River to the Prison Boab Tree. We continue on to explore Tunnel Creek and experience a 750 metre cave walk through the ancient Devonian reef system. As the sun sets and touches the sides of Windjana Gorge you are ready to enjoy your first night camping in the outback.
It’s an early morning start to explore Windjana Gorge. Your tour then follows ‘The Gibb’ crossing rugged King Leopold Range and heading into ‘cattle country’. After a healthy lunch we walk into breathtaking Bell Gorge for a relaxed and refreshing swim prior to travelling to camp on the banks of the Lower Manning River, the first of our two night camps.
The morning includes a walk into Manning Gorge where you can admire ancient Aboriginal rock art and swim in clear pools near the spectacular Manning Falls. The afternoon is a short drive and a pleasant stroll into the picturesque Galvan’s Gorge. After a relaxed swim we return to Mt Barnett and our camp by the Lower Manning River ready for another dinner under the stars.
Your tour continues east along the Gibb River Road, crossing the Durack River before arriving at Home Valley Station on the banks of the Pentecost River. Home Valley Station is a beautiful ‘oasis’ in the middle of the harsh outback environment. Another exceptional day in this beautiful part of the world.
Continue the adventure as we make our way up the Gibb River Road to the famous El Questro Station. We cross the Pentecost River and explore the stunning Emma Gorge where a refreshing swim awaits you. Relax and explore the iconic El Questro township or enjoy the Champagne Chamberlain Cruise. A relaxed evening of laughter and shared experiences as we continue your adventure of a lifetime.
Today you have an opportunity to take an early morning optional scenic flight over the magnificent Mitchell Falls and Kimberley countryside. Alternatively bird watching, horse riding or a relaxed morning around camp are on offer. We then explore the picturesque El Questro Gorge, take in the beauty of the fern lined gorge and enjoy a swim at the half way pool. Enjoy a relaxed afternoon back at our camp on the banks of the Pentecost River.
We start the day at Zebedee Hot Springs where you can soak in the warm, crystal clear water of a natural rock pool beneath tropical palms. It’s our last day of the journey along the Gibb River Road before arriving and exploring Kununurra, a unique outback town developed during the construction of Lake Argyle. The Ord River Scheme, Diversion Dam and local agriculture are all on display.
Today is a free day to relax and explore Kununurra. This is a fabulous opportunity to take an optional tour and explore Lake Argyle and the mighty Ord River. The scenery and wildlife, from rock wallabies to crocodiles and over 270 species of birds await you. The history and facts will astound you. Alternatively there is fishing, swimming in the pool or perhaps an optional scenic flight.
Back on the road and we’re ready to explore the world famous Purnululu National Park (Bungle Bungles). Before we leave Kununurra we may visit Ivanhoe Crossing, Zebra Rock Gallery or local galleries to view the creative artwork of local indigenous artists. This afternoon is your opportunity for that once in a life time experience of an optional helicopter flight over the Bungle Bungles.
The track into Purnululu National Park is four wheel drive only. Our slow but scenic trip is the perfect approach to the wonder of the Bungle Bungles. The Domes Walk, Picinniny Creek, Cathedral Gorge and Echidna Chasm are on the ‘list’. We are in the midst of the Bungle Bungles and there is almost too much to see and do.
Our journey today leads us south along the Great Northern Highway and through some more incredible Kimberley landscapes. We travel to Halls Creek and make a visit to the China Wall. Our destination is Fitzroy Crossing. Enjoy your final night camped at an exclusive campsite on a working cattle station. Enjoy the evening sun setting over the billabong. Sleep under a billion stars and wake to the sounds of the outback.
The perfect start to our last day is a complimentary scenic river cruise exploring Geike Gorge. View spectacular multi-coloured 30 metre deep cliffs carved by the floodwaters of the Fitzroy River through the Devonian fossil reef. Our final destination is lovely, tropical Broome where sadly we all say goodbye.
