Itinerary

Day 1: Broome

Welcome to Broome, an easy going tourist town with a pretty striking strip of coastline. We set off into the West Australian wilds pretty early today, so consider arriving a day or two early if you fancy getting to know Broome better. After a bit of highway driving we reach the Fitzroy River, then it’s all off-road to the Napier Range. The main attraction here is a guided walk through Tunnel Creek, a vast cave system that extends 750 metres underground. Accommodation: Camping (with facilities) Note: Total driving time today is around five hours. Total walking distance is approximately three kilometres including walking through water in Tunnel Creek.

Meal(s) included: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2: Bell Gorge

Today we head to Windjana Gorge, once an underwater reef just 350 million years ago. During the wet season a river flows all the way through it, but during the dry it’s really more a series of ponds and billabongs. Set out on a bit of an explore, hopefully spotting a freshwater crocodile or two. The western Kimberley region is full of endless stunning gorges that have to be explored and this afternoon is no exception. Bell Gorge is home to a stunning cascade of water flowing from the previous wet season rains that fall in the King Leoplold Ranges. We enjoy an afternoon swim in the large plunge pool before making our way to camp along the Gibb River Road. Accommodation: Camping (with facilities) Note: Total driving time today is around 4.5 hours. Total walking distance is approximately 4 -6 kilometres including walking through water in Tunnel Creek

Meal(s) included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3: Manning Gorge

We spend the morning exploring Manning gorge and enjoy a swim in the pools under Manning Falls.

Day 4: Gibb River Road to El Questro

Fording rivers and weaving through gorges, travel by 4WD along the wild Gibb River Road – a 600-kilometre stretch that winds right through the heart of the Kimberley.

This park is home-ground of the Bungle Bungles, a UNESCO World Heritage Site dominated by massive sandstone karsts that rear hundreds of metres above the surrounding grasslands. We arrive at our bush camp in time to sit back and watch the sun set over the Osmond Ranges. If you’ve had enough of tent camping by now, you might want to spend tonight sleeping out beneath the stars snuggled up in a swag.

You have the choice of relaxing in the famous infinity pool overlooking the magnificent Lake Argyle or appreciating it from the water by choosing to do a cruise (own expense).

We had this trip planned before COVID-19, so we were really looking forward to finally go! It was the best trip ever! Bus full of Nice people and a really great guide. Adam was so calm and knew every corner of this amazing part of the Country. We really loved the down to earth feeling in the whole concept.

Martin, our guide's experience & passion for the Kimberleys enabled our group aged late 20's -early 70s to gel well...socially, cooking, setting up camp and walking together. His daily briefings on the next days activities were detailed & he ensured these were suited to our individual capabilities. Great food- hot breakfast options, fresh salad veges for lunch, dinners included camp oven delights. The regular early starts were compensated by cooler walking temperatures and having the popular trail or spring to ourselves. The management team were quick to respond to questions. Very inspiring, evidenced by lots of pics taken and many paintings to make. Thanks for a great experience.

We absolutely loved our Kimberley Off-Road Adventure along the Gibb River Road. Our driver/guide, Hunter was infectiously enthusiastic about the beautiful & rugged Kimberley region we travelled through. Knowledgeable, great company & a great camp cook we could not speak highly enough of his efforts on tour.

Had a great time on this tour. Adam takes everything in his stride, and man can he drive that 4WD truck! The ages ranged from 24 to 71 in our group. The small group sizes this company takes is the best thing, and the distance this tour covered in 9 days was amazing. I totally agree that Adam 'has an unbelievable eye for spotting animals". The video on this company's website is exactly how our trip was. As you would expect off-road camping in the Kimberley it was fairly physical. I enjoyed the tour and recommend it. Make sure your boots are sturdy.
