Kimberley Tour Package 9 Days/9 Nights

Route: Broome - Horizontal Falls - Derby - Napier Range - Fitzroy Crossing - Bungle Bungles - Kununurra - Katherine - Darwin

Our Kimberley adventure starts with a welcome drink at the Mercure Hotel in Broome the day prior our departure. Meet your fellow travellers and your guide.

Day 1 We have nine wonderful days of touring ahead of us and we start the day with a visit to the Willie Creek Pearl Farm. Discover how the regions rare Australian pearl is produced and check out the stunning display of pearls in the farms own showroom. After lunch we travel to Derby and stop along the way at the famous Boab Prison Tree, believed to be over 1500 years old. Derby is located on the edge of the King Sound with the highest tides of any Australian port. The beaches are not golden silky sand but mudflats, mangrove's and swamps. We will set up our deck chairs along the Derby jetty and click away at the rush of the tidal water coming in. The next two nights are spent at the Spinifex Hotel.

Day 2 A fabulous day ahead of us today. Step on board a turbo prop seaplane and enjoy a morning flight directly to the Horizontal Falls. Experience the thrill of riding through the falls on the fastest boat in the Kimberley. With our heart back to normal we cruise through the spectacular untouched surrounding bays and creeks. On board a fixed luxury vessel, we enjoy lunch and a swim in the croc and shark free cage. With cameras ready for stunning photographs we take a low level scenic flight over the Buccaneer Archipelago and King Sound as we return to Derby. Back in Derby we visit the local indigenous art gallery and the Wharf Museum. With some down time in Derby, explore the town a little more, do a little bit of shopping or head to the jetty for another spectacular tidal display.

Day 3 A day on the dirt with part of the Gibb River Road as we tour to Windjana Gorge National Park and Tunnel Creek. Both located in the Napier Range and are composed of limestone, the remains of a Devonian reef system formed around 350 million years ago. The tunnel component of Tunnel Creek has a length of about 750 metres that runs underground and is one of the oldest cave systems in Western Australia. Will trek through the tunnel for the entire length where we have to wade through several permanent pools and return the same way. The tunnel is home to at least five species of bats including ghost bats and fruit bats, and stalactites descending from the roof in many places. We travel to Fitzroy Crossing and make our way to the Fitzroy River Lodge. Check in and join back for a delicious group dinner.

Day 4 We start the day with a cruise on the Fitzroy River in the Geike Gorge National Park. Geike Gorge was formed by the Fitzroy River and the level of the river in the wet season can rise by up to 16.5 metres. The limestone walls where originally formed by coral reef, algae and lime secreting organisms that are now extinct. The remains of the reef stand up to 100 metres above the plains as the mighty Fitzroy courses through them. The freshwater crocodiles that line the river will watch us warily and we will learn about their lifestyle as we journey through their natural habitat. 

Sit back and enjoy the drive as we travel through open grasslands and vast floodplains to halls Creek and the Bungle Bungle National Park. We check into our custom built en-suited safari tents for the next two nights. Take in the sheer magnitude of Purnululu National Park with an optional 40 minute scenic helicopter flight over the breath-taking Bungle Bungle Range, Ord River and Echidna Chasm late afternoon. Or just kick back and relax in comfort.

Today is spent exploring various parts of this unique National Park where the highest peaks reach 578 metres above sea level and the famous sandstone domes, unusual and visually striking with their striping in alternating orange and grey bands.
