ITINERARY

Day 1: Tunnel Creek

Departing Broome, we journey to the renowned ‘Boab Prison Tree’ and the start of the iconic Gibb River Road. Set up camp in Windjana Gorge National Park and enjoy lunch before we head for the adventure of Tunnel Creek, a cave system carved through the Napier Range, discover stalactites and a large variety of wildlife. Also learn the legend of Jandamarra, an Aboriginal freedom fighter who used the tunnel as a hideout in the late 1800’s. Towards sunset, we arrive at our campsite for a delicious campfire dinner under the famous Kimberley night sky. (LD)

Day 2: Windjana Gorge & Galvins Gorge

Spend the morning exploring the famous Windjana Gorge, a majestic oasis in the outback where we search for freshwater crocodiles, bird life and bushtucker. An afternoon swim at Galvans Gorge, amongst water lilies and boab trees, offers the chance to freshen up. That night, we camp on Mt Barnett Cattle Station at a billabong oasis in the heart of gorge country. (BLD)

Day 3: Manning Falls

Today we explore the remote and spectacular Manning Gorge surrounded by high cliff. Cross the meandering Manning River – either swimming or by pulley boat! – and take on a bushwalk to the impressive Manning Falls. The kids will love swimming in deep clear pools surrounded by a rugged natural landscape. In the afternoon, relax, swim and play games by the Manning River before we get the campfire going for dinner and marshmallow toasting! (BLD)

Day 4: Adcock Gorge & Bell Gorge

Enjoy a morning swim in Adcock Gorge, surrounded by rainforest and sandstone ranges. Travel to Silent Grove to set up camp and enjoy lunch before we explore the spectacular Bell Gorge in the ancient King Leopold Range. This idyllic retreat boasts majestic cascading waterfalls and crystal clear pools formed over millions of years. (BLD)

Day 5: Derby & Broome

Returning to the Gibb River Road we head for the Norval Art Gallery in Derby. Here we discover some of the great works produced by local Aboriginal artists. There is even an opportunity for the kids to have a go at producing their own! Arrive back in Broome around 5pm. (BL)
