11 Day Kimberley Accommodated Tour

To start your tour, you will be collected from your Broome accommodation at 7.30am by our tour guide. We will firstly call into Beagle Bay to see the beautiful pearl shell altar at the Sacred Heart Church built by the German Pallotine monks in 1917/18. Continuing towards Cape Leveque, we detour to enjoy a tour of One Arm Point Hatchery and Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm, followed by lunch. Upon reaching Cape Leveque we will set up camp and then enjoy a glass or two while viewing the spectacular sunset from the western beach.

Overnight: Kooljaman at Cape Leveque
Meals: Lunch, Dinner

Departing early, we will head towards Derby to see the Boab Prison Tree which is estimated to be over 1000 years old. Following morning tea, we take a short drive to the Mowanjum Aboriginal Art Gallery so you can peruse the exquisite pieces and learn about the traditional art history of this area. The journey now begins along the Gibb River Rd, passing through the King Leopold Range and onto our overnight stay at the Bell Gorge Wilderness Lodge.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

We begin the day with our hike of Bell Gorge. Eroded into the King Leopold Range, Bell Gorge is one of the most impressive gorges in the Kimberley. Bell Creek cascades down through a series of falls and pools. There is time to enjoy a beautiful early morning swim to cool down before we continue. We then head towards Galvans Gorge for a short walk before stopping at the Barnett River. We continue north along the Gibb River Rd before arriving at our evening destination, Drysdale River Station.

Overnight: Drysdale River Station
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today’s drive along the Port Warrender Road will be slow and steady to the Mitchell Plateau. The roads are a good example of 4WD terrain. Stopping in at two spectacular examples of Aboriginal Rock Art, we immerse ourselves back in time, followed by Lunch. We continue onto the Mitchell Falls Lodge, arriving late afternoon in time for a refreshing swim in the picturesque swimming hole the divides the lodge tents.

Overnight: Mitchell Falls Wilderness Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Departing the lodge for the day, we arrive at the Mertens carpark where we embark on a short scenic helicopter flight over the Mitchell Plateau and the incredible Mitchell Falls. The scenery is remarkable and it gives us a great perspective before seeing it on the ground. After exploring the top of the falls, and enjoying a swim, we hike 3.5km back to the carpark, stopping in at some Aboriginal Rock Art along the way. Once we arrive back at the vehicle, we take the short drive back to the lodge and relax.

Overnight: Mitchell Falls Wilderness Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today is one of our biggest drive days (due to limited accommodation options). We make our way back to re-join the Gibb River Road. One of our scheduled stops is to Ellenbrae Station to meet the wonderful hosts and indulge in afternoon tea. Along the way we will be presented with fabulous views of the Kimberley and Cockburn Range. Our journey continues along the Gibb River Road to our evening accommodation at Home Valley Station.

Overnight: Home Valley Station
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today we experience the beauty of El Questro Wilderness Park, firstly with a swim in the magnificent Thermal Pools of Zebedee Springs, followed by a 1.2km hike into Emma Gorge, in the heart of the Cockburn Ranges. Following the hike, we enjoy lunch before making our way to one of the most spectacular sunset views in the Kimberley for drinks and appetizers.

Overnight: El Questro Wilderness Park
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast, we travel into the World Heritage Listed Purnululu National Park (Bungle Bungles). The Bungle Bungle Range is renowned for its striking orange and grey horizontal banded domes. The distinctive beehive-shaped landforms have been produced by uplift and erosion over the last 20 million years.

Our evening will consist of a spectacular sunset viewing of the Bungle Bungle Ranges while enjoying a glass of Champagne, before returning to our evening accommodation.

Overnight: Purnululu (Bungle Bungles)
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast, we spend the day walking and exploring the magnificent beehive formations of this World Heritage Listed region. This will include hikes into Echidna Chasm, Cathedral Gorge and Piccaninny Creek Lookout. Up until 1982 the region was largely ‘undiscovered’. Prior to 1982 only local Aboriginal people and a handful of stockmen knew of the area and in 1987 it became a National Park. An unforgettable helicopter flight over the Bungles is highly recommended and available at an extra cost.

Overnight: Purnululu (Bungle Bungles)
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Leaving Purnululu we make our way to Halls Creek for morning tea and refreshments. We travel along the Great Northern Highway to Fitzroy Crossing, stopping for lunch and enjoying the views. Our evening destination, the Fitzroy River Lodge, is a beautiful oasis nestled along the banks of the river where you are welcome to take a short evening walk.

Overnight: Fitzroy River Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

The final day takes you on a boat tour down the Fitzroy River through Geikie Gorge, offering marvellous views and photo opportunities. We then make our way to Tunnel Creek which flows through a water worn tunnel beneath the limestone of the Napier Range. Tunnel Creek is part of the 350-375 million year old Devonian Reef, formed when most of the Kimberley was covered by the sea and gradually exposed as the sea level fell to its present level.

Tunnel Creek was the hideout for Jandamarra (Pigeon) who led the Aboriginal resistance against the police and pastoralists until he was tracked down and killed by a police posse in 1897. We will walk 750 metres through the tunnel, wading through several permanent pools to the other side of Napier Range.

We return to Broome early evening and will say farewell after taking you to your accommodation.
