Arrive in Broome and transfer to our hotel to join the group for your Ultimate ‘Kimberley Wilderness Experience’. Check in and meet for briefing.
Today is a free day in Broome to explore. You may choose to go birdwatching, kayaking, visit the pearl farm, do a sunset camel safari, take an optional excursion to see the amazing Horizontal Falls or Cape Leveque or visit Broome Historical Museum, the choices are endless and are yours.
We depart Broome travelling the Great Northern Highway to the mighty Fitzroy River for morning tea at Willare Bridge Roadhouse. We visit the historic Boab Prison Tree prior to embarking along the scenic Gibb River Road to arrive at our first campsite at Windjana Gorge. We will take you to experience a 750 metre cave walk through Tunnel Creek. As the sun sets and touches the sides of Windjana Gorge an amazing photo opportunity is yours for the click. Enjoy your first night camping in the outback.
It’s an early morning start to explore the ancient Devonian reef system that is Windjana Gorge. Enjoy close range viewing of freshwater crocodiles and birdlife. We follow the Gibb River Road taking us across the rugged King Leopold Range and into cattle country. Walk into breathtaking Bell Gorge for a relaxed and refreshing swim. Our destination is Mt Barnett Station for the first of our two night camps on the banks of the Lower Manning River.
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 your second night’s camp on the banks of the Lower Manning River.
Your tour continues east along the Gibb River Road to Home Valley Station. Along the way we will visit the Gibb River, Durack River and Aboriginal art. We take in the awesome view of the Cockburn Ranges before arriving at Home Valley Station, a beautiful ‘oasis’ in the middle of the harsh outback. Swim in the pool, explore Dusty’s Bar and relax as the sun goes down over the Pentecost River. Sleep soundly after another exceptional day in this beautiful part of the world.
We continue the adventure as we make our way along 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. The afternoon is yours to relax and explore the iconic El Questro township or enjoy the optional Champagne Chamberlain Cruise. A relaxed evening of laughter and shared experiences rounds out another perfect day on your ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’!
Soak your traveller body in thermal, crystal clear water beneath tropical palms at Zebedee Hot Springs. We explore the natural beauty of the fern lined El Questro Gorge, making our way to the halfway pool for a swim in this picturesque location. Enjoy a relaxed afternoon and magical sunset at Pigeon Hole Lookout.
Depart El Questro via an optional scenic flight to explore Mitchell Falls or discover Kalumburu Indigenous Community. Either option reveals ancient Indigenous art and experiences. Please refer to Optional Tours for further details and pricing. Alternatively, enjoy a relaxed morning and the short drive to Kununurra, a unique town developed around the Ord River Scheme, Diversion Dam and agriculture. Take a walk into town and visit local art galleries. We camp at Ivanhoe Village Caravan Park, Kununurra for two nights.
Today is your day to relax and explore Kununurra and its abundance of natural wonders. 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 fish for Barramundi, swim in the pool or perhaps take an optional scenic flight. This ‘free’ day is blissfully yours to maximise your time in the East Kimberley. Return to camp for another sumptuous dinner and overnight at Ivanhoe Village Caravan Park.
Back on the road and we are ready to explore the World Heritage Listed, Purnululu National Park (Bungle Bungles). Prior to leaving Kununurra we may visit Ivanhoe Crossing, Zebra Rock Gallery or local art galleries to view the creative artwork of local indigenous artists. Consider participating in that ‘once in a lifetime’ experience of an optional helicopter flight over the Bungle Bungles. We will stay at Bungle Bungle Station Caravan Park for two nights.
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, Piccaninny 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 a visit to the China Wall. Our destination is Fitzroy Crossing. Enjoy your final night camped by a billabong at an exclusive campsite on a working cattle station. 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 high cliffs carved by the floodwaters of the Fitzroy River through the Devonian fossil reef. Our final destination is lovely, tropical Broome where sadly we say goodbye to our AW hosts.
A free day to explore Broome further or take an optional tour, perhaps sunset camel safari.
Check out from our hotel and explore Broome before transfering to airport for homeward journey.
