13 Day Kimberley Accommodated Tour

To start your tour, you will be collected from your Broome accommodation at 7am by our tour guide. We will firstly call into one of Broome’s popular cafés, followed by a short sightseeing trip around Broome. Our journey then begins along the Great Northern Highway to Derby with a stopover at Willare Roadhouse for Lunch. We visit the Art Gallery in Derby, the Wharf, and the Boab Prison tree before settling into the Spinifex hotel in Derby.

Overnight: Spinifex Hotel Derby
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today we 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. Our next destination is Windjana Gorge, a stunning gorge cut through the Napier Range. This site holds special significance to the local Aboriginal people. The gorge is 3.5 km long and formed by the Lennard River as it winds its way through the Napier Range. There are primeval life forms fossilised within the gorge walls. Isolated pools in the ‘dry’ season, support an abundance of wildlife including freshwater crocodiles, water birds, corellas and a colony of fruit bats. We continue on through the Wunaamin Miliwundi (King Leopold Ranges) to our evening destination, the Bell Gorge Wilderness Lodge.

Overnight: Bell Gorge Wilderness Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Following a leisurely breakfast, we take the short drive to 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. We hike to 1.2km to the falls. There is time to enjoy a beautiful morning swim to cool down and relax before we return to our evening destination, The Bell Gorge Wilderness Lodge. The afternoon and evening are spent relaxing around the lodge.

Overnight: Bell Gorge Wilderness Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

We say goodbye to Bell Gorge Wilderness lodge and re-join the Gibb River Rd towards Galvans Gorge for an early morning swim followed by Mt Barnett for fuel and refreshments. Stopping regularly along the way we continue our journey to the Mitchell Falls Lodge, our evening destination. Today is our biggest day due to limited accommodation along the way. After settling in we enjoy a drink around the campfire followed by dinner.

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’s drive along Port Warrender Road will be slow and steady back along the Port Warrender Rd. The roads are a good example of 4WD terrain. Stopping in at two spectacular examples of Aboriginal Rock Art and joining a cultural tour of the sites, we immerse ourselves back in time, followed by Lunch.  We continue onto Ellenbrae Station, the wonderful, authentic cattle station and meet the wonderful hosts and enjoy afternoon tea on the grounds.

Overnight: Ellenbrae Station
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

A leisurely breakfast this morning where the group can relax on the grounds of the property before jumping back in the vehicle for the day’s drive. 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 destination at El Questro.

Overnight: El Questro Wilderness Park
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 a spectacular viewing of a Kimberley Sunset.

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

Following breakfast, we take a short journey into Kununurra and surrounds where you will embark on a half day tour of the Ord River and Lake Argyle via boat, returning to Kununurra just after sunset.

Your journey now takes you to 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 National Park
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.

Following an early breakfast, the group embarks on a beautiful, slow, and informative boat cruise down the Fitzroy River through Geikie Gorge. Our last leg of the day takes us back into Broome mid-afternoon where we will bid farewell to the group and drop off to their pre-arranged accommodation.
