Kimberley Tour Package 10 Days/10 Nights

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

Day 1 We have ten wonderful days of touring ahead of us and we start the day with a visit to the Pearl Luggers Tour. Learn about the pearl industry and the great history that goes with it. Discover how the regions rare Australian pearl is produced and check out the stunning display of pearls in the showroom. It is time to depart Broome and we travel to Derby. 

After lunch we explore parts of Derby and surrounds. Travel to the famous Boab Prison Tree believed to be over 1500 years old. Walk to the longest water trough nearby which could water 500 bullocks to the same time without running dry. Next up is the Mowanjum Indigenous Art Centre. It features authentic Aboriginal Art from Mowanjum Community and out-stations. Back in town we head to the Derby jetty. 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 in the beautiful apartments of the Derby Lodge.

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 getting up close to the local residents. Now we will discover that time really does slow down in the Kimberley. After lunch we will head back out to see the tidal changes at the Horizontal Falls. 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. Enjoy some down time in Derby or do a little shopping late afternoon.

Day 4 Today we explore Geike Gorge. It 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. Geike Gorge is the best example of the Devonian time and we will take a couple of walks while learning about history, plants and bush medicine. The freshwater crocodiles that line the river will watch us warily and we will learn about their lifestyle as we take a fabulous cruise through their natural habitat. On our way back to the Lodge, we stop at the historic townsite and crossing. Fitzroy River Lodge En-suited Safari Tents, Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
