6 Day Broome to the Bungle Bungle Range

Journey from Broome along an unforgettable trail that leads you deep into Purnululu National Park, where the impressive striped domes of the Bungle Bungle Range await. Enjoy an extended two-night stay in Purnululu National Park in the exclusive Bungle Bungle Wilderness Lodge. Have a full day to visit Echidna Chasm, known for towering Livistonia Palms. With its natural amphitheatre setting, Cathedral Gorge is 3 km of breathtaking scenery. Take the easy-paced walk along the dry bed of Piccaninny Creek to inspect the Bungle Bungle domes up close. Along the way you’ll visit Tunnel Creek, where you can take an exciting walk wading through the tunnel in knee to thigh high water.  Join a fascinating cruise which takes you down the mighty Fitzroy River through Geikie Gorge. Travel to the pre-historic Windjana Gorge, a great freshwater crocodile spotting site and travel back to Broome where your tour concludes.

Day 1. Broome, Gibb River Road, Windjana Gorge, Tunnel Creek

Depart early from Broome today and visit the fascinating Boab Prison Tree. Believed to be more than 1,500 years old and measuring an incredible 14 metres in diameter, this tree was once used by early police patrols as a standing point for prisoners as they were walked to Derby. Continue your journey along the 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 savannah landscapes. 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 freshwater crocodiles. Turn off to explore 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.
