Itinerary

Day 1: Sunday Derby, Windjana Gorge, Tunnel Creek Fitzroy River Lodge

Pass By: Kimberley Region, Kimberley Region, Western Australia
Departing Broome this morning we’ll travel through the remote and beautiful landscape of the Western Kimberley, learning of local history, people and the environment crossing the Fitzroy River and visiting the famous Prison Boab Tree. We arrive in the township of Derby located on the tidal mud flats on the edge of the King Sound known for having the highest tidal range of any port in Australia prior to beginning our journey on the remote cattle track, the Gibb River Road. We travel towards the Napier Range, once a Devonian reef these escarpments are over 350 million years old and home to a diverse array of animals and plants. The perfect place to experience the stunning natural beauty of an outback oasis is the 3.5km geological wonder of Windjana Gorge and then exploring Tunnel Creek, a 750-metre cave system carved through the Range, in which we discover stalactites, secret caves and a variety of wildlife. It is here we also learn the legend of Jandamarra, an Aboriginal freedom fighter who used the tunnel as a hide out in the late 1800’s. As the sun sets we journey through the Oscar Ranges and groves of majestic Boab trees before arriving at our comfortable accommodation on the banks of the Fitzroy River.

Day 2: Monday Geikie Gorge Cruise, Halls CreekBungle Bungle Station Stay

Stop At: Geikie Gorge National Park, King Leopold Ranges, Fitzroy Crossing, Western Australia 6765 Australia
After breakfast we travel via Geikie Gorge National Park where we explore the magnificent Darngku by boat. Nature carved this spectacular 30m deep gorge between the Geikie and Oscar Ranges during the Devonian geological period. The best way to experience the scenery and abundant wildlife of this natural wonder is to join the Geikie Gorge ranger-guided cruise. Geikie Gorge floods during the wet season, with the swirling water leaving its bleached mark on the colourful gorge walls. Though the water retreats during the dry season, permanent water remains to sustain the wide variety of Kimberley wildlife. This morning we depart Fitzroy Crossing, breaking the journey in the the gold rush town of Halls Creek where we will visit an Aboriginal Art Gallery featuring the work of local artists who we may have the opportunity to meet. Continuing we arrive at our comfortable accommodation, home for the next two nights, at the famous Mabel Downs Station. As you settle in your guide will prepare a tasty BBQ for dinner that is enjoyed as we sit around the campfire in this special outback setting.

Day 3: Tuesday Bungle Bungles Touring

Pass By: Purnululu National Park, Purnululu National Park, Kimberley Region, Western Australia
An early morning start sees us tackling the 4WD Spring Creek Track. After a brief stop at the Visitor Centre we have a full day to explore the highlights of this extraordinary World Heritage protected Purnululu National Park, the most famous of which, are the Bungle Bungle domes. Rivers created this landscape of unique orange and black striped ‘beehive’ geological formations over a period of 20 million years. Unbelievably, only the locals knew it existed until the early 1980’s; once discovered by others, the area was made a national park in 1987. We explore Echidna Chasm (2km), known for its towering Livistona Palm trees, and take a short walk (2-3km) into stunning Cathedral Gorge, where towering rocks create a natural amphitheatre. This is a truly memorable day as we once again share stories around the campfire tonight.

After departing Mabel Downs Station we visit the interesting natural feature of China Wall. A natural quartz formation that runs six kilometres along the landscape, the wall is an echo of that for which it was named – the Great Wall of China. Continuing back along Highway One we arrive at Yeeda Station, the oldest working cattle station in the Kimberley. This evening we enjoy a delicious long table dinner of Yeeda Beef at the station homestead in the evocative outback surroundings prior to retiring to our comfortable accommodation in stylish en-suited Eco Tents.
