Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Experience the beautiful rugged Kimberley on this true Australian adventure from Darwin to Broome. Uncover some of the country's most incredible, untouched territory on an all-terrain journey along the Gibb River Road. Learn the customs of the traditional land-owners while cruising through the gorges of Nitmiluk, sail across the vast waters of Lake Argyle, and squeeze through the narrow rock passages of the striped Bungle Bungles. Soak up the idyllic isolation of remote stations like El Questro and head out to discover secret palm-shaded waterholes. Make your way to the remote Mitchell Plateau and see its majestic four-tiered waterfall, discover the unbelievably picturesque oases of the Bell, Galvans, Adcock gorges, and find hidden caves and indigenous history at Tunnel Creek. Come face-to-face with vast horizons and immense wilderness with this unforgettable taste of Australia at its most untamed.

  1. Day 1
    Darwin
    You can arrive in Darwin at any time today. In the evening, head to reception where your guide will be holding a welcome meeting (look for the signs at receotion for the time). Learn all about the adventure your are about to take and get to know your fellow travellers.
  2. Day 2
    Nitmiluk Gorge & Katherine
    Departing Darwin we travel south to the natural spring of Edith Falls. After a break and a refreshing dip, we head for the remote outback town of Katherine, home to the spectacular Nitmiluk Gorge. This inspiring natural wonder comprises 13 different gorges, carved over a millennia by the Katherine River. On an afternoon Nitnit Dreaming Cultural Cruise, we explore two of these gorges and discover the customs of the traditional land owners, the Jawoyn people.
    Meals: Dinner
  3. Day 3
    Lake Argyle
    We continue west along the Victoria Highway and cross the border into Western Australia as we travel to 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. A sunset cruise on the lake is a stunning way to end the day.
    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
  4. Day 8
    Drysdale Station
    Head along the Gibb River Road to the North Kimberley to another oasis in the outback – Drysdale River Station. Over 1 million acres, this family owned and operated cattle station runs approximately 10,000 head of cattle, and gives you a real sense of how the outback does things on a massive scale. Hang out in the true blue Australian outback, surrounded by its magical scenery and welcoming sense of isolation. On arrival you might want to get out and explore the surroundings, or sit back and enjoy a cold drink in the beer garden of one of Australia’s most remote bars, then warm yourself around the log fire in the night air.
    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
  5. Day 11
    Mount Elizabeth Station
    Descending from the plateau, travel to the family owned Mt Elizabeth Station Homestead, where you'll be able to enjoy the scenery and see what Kimberley cattle station life is really like. Surrounded by water spots, rocky rises and grasslands, you will be sure to take a great photo, enjoy bush walks and settle in for a lovely evening in the Kimberley outback.
    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
  6. Day 12
    Silent Grove
    make the most of the oases of the lily-laden Galvans Gorge and the tranquil retreat of Adcock Gorge, where you’ll pause for a refreshing swim. The afternoon is devoted to exploring Bell Gorge, which is a hidden highlight of the West Kimberley. This idyllic retreat, considered amongst the most beautiful gorge on the Gibb River Road, boasts cascading waterfalls and crystal clear pools formed over millions of years, all surrounded by a horseshoe of bright orange rock wall. There are smooth rocks to lounge on and welcome areas of shade. It’s an easy place to while away a few hours! You’ll camp tonight at Silent Grove.
    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
  7. Day 13
    Tunnel Creek
    Leaving Bell Gorge behind spend the afternoon exploring Tunnel Creek with a local Bunuba guide, who will share ancient rock art and reveal the legend of his ancestor, Jandamarra – an Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander freedom fighter who used the tunnel as a hide-out in the late 1800. In this 750-metre cave system carved through the Napier Range, discover stalactites, secret caves and a large variety of wildlife. Don't miss a refreshing swim in an idyllic waterhole before setting up camp for the night.
    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
  8. Day 14
    Windjana Gorge
    Once a great reef 350 million years ago, Windjana Gorge is now home to a diverse array of animals and plants. Experience the stunning natural beauty of this outback oasis today. Beneath gorge walls that rise 90 metres in height, search for freshwater crocodiles, local birdlife and traditional bush tucker, before starting our journey to Broome.
    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
  9. Day 15
    Broome
    You are free to depart Broome at any time today. If you have more time we recommend you consider a Broome Sights town tour to discover the secrets of this fabulous outback town, or take a trip up to Cape Leveque for a day.
  10. Day 45
    Purnululu National Park (Bungle Bungles)
    Head south down the Great Northern Highway to Purnululu National Park, home of the magnificent Bungle Bungles. Two nights camping in the heart of the National Park allows a full day to explore the highlights of this extraordinary National Park, the most famous of which, are the Bungle Bungle domes. Rivers created this landscape of unique orange and black striped 'beehive' geological formations over a period of 20 million years. Unbelievably, only the locals knew it existed until the early 1980's; once discovered by others, the area was made a national park in 1987. We explore Echidna Chasm (2km), known for its towering Livistonia Palm trees, and take a short walk (2-3km) into stunning Cathedral Gorge, where towering rocks create a natural amphitheatre. There is time in the afternoon to take an optional scenic flight and enjoy a birds-eye view of the beehive domes (approx $400pp, own expense) to put it all into perspective.
    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
  11. Day 67
    El Questro Wilderness Park
    Turn back north to the iconic El Questro Wilderness Park. Prepare for two days of idyllic isolation and access to some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Kimberley. Take the opportunity relax and to join one or more of the many activities on offer. The area is blessed with some of the most stunning gorges and waterholes in the whole of Western Australia. Emma Gorge lies at the end of a well-marked track, with 100 metre high walls around a horseshoe crystal clear pool filled by a small waterfall, and a hidden little bath warmed by thermal water that trickles from a crevice. El Questro Gorge is another stunning highlight, scrambling over boulders to rock pools filled by little waterfalls – scenery that’s straight out of movie. A refreshing dip in the Zebedee Springs is also another ‘must-do’, where Livistonia palm trees and lush tropical vegetation surround a series of pools that sit at the base of bright red cliff. Perhaps take a cruise on Chamberlain Gorge (own expense), or simply explore this beautiful wilderness park at your own leisure.
    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
  12. Day 910
    Mitchell Plateau
    Veer off-road and cross to the Mitchell Plateau for a real highlight of the trip. Take on rugged country in the 4WD, taking the rough Kalumburu Road then turning off onto the Mitchell Plateau Track. The drive is unlike any other on the Gibb River Road, as the vegetation transforms and you ford rivers and ramble through ancient Livistonia palm forests to emerge on the savannah, where two days of camping in the national park await. The park is home to the magnificent four-tiered Mitchell Falls, and the scale and power of nature here is unforgettable. Your time here will include the chance of a dip in the Little and Big Merten Falls, a viewing of the Bradshaw rock art, and, if you so choose, a helicopter flight with incredible views of this extraordinary landscape.
