DESCRIPTION

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Fairfield-Leopold Downs Rd, Windjana Gorge National Park, Western Australia 6728 Australia

Departing Broome, you head over the township of Broome passing Chinatown, Roebuck Bay and surrounds. Your flight path takes you over Malcolm Douglas Crocodile farm and the Broome Road before you head towards the open landscape of the Kimberley.

As you fly past the millions of hectares of station land, rich in Aboriginal Heritage, your pilot will entertain you with stories and the history of the area, before entering the area known as the King Leopold Ranges on your descent into Windjana Gorge. The King Leopold Ranges extend for three hundred kilometres from Walcott Inlet in the West to approximately one hundred kilometres from Halls Creek in the East. The ranges consist of long, rugged, spinifex-covered ridges and escarpments. Mount Ord at nine hundred and forty seven metres above sea level and Mount Broome at nine hundred and thirty five metres are the highest peaks in the range.

After landing at Windjana Gorge Airstrip you will take a short drive through the amazing Windjana Gorge where you will see a myriad of natural wildlife and view the amazing and ever present stares of Windjana’s most revered occupant, the Johnson River Crocodile. The walls of Windjana Gorge rise abruptly from the wide alluvial floodplain of the Lennard River, reaching approximately one hundred metres high in some places. The three and a half kilometre long gorge cuts through the limestone of the Napier Range, part of an ancient barrier reef which can also be seen at Geikie Gorge and Tunnel Creek National Parks.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Bell Gorge, Gibb River Road Kimberley Region, Western Australia Australia

After an hour spent at Windjana you take to the skies again for a short flight over the King Leopold Range to the remote Silent Grove airstrip for another quick drive through the Kimberley outback, dotted with many native boab trees to Bell Gorge. Once at Bell Gorge there will be a short, steep one kilometre walk to the top of the waterfall. This walk is not for the faint hearted but is well worth it once you meet the refreshing pool that feeds the waterfall. Once at the top of the waterfall there is a chance for swimming, relaxing and amazing photo opportunities. For the daring, there is another one kilometre harsh walk to the base of the waterfall where an amazing fresh water pool is awaiting your arrival.

Once you are feeling relaxed and refreshed from your swim at Bell Gorge, you then take off for a another flight over the King Leopold Ranges into Mt Hart Station.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: King Leopold Ranges Conservation Park, via Gibb River Road, 200 km east of Derby, Western Australia 6728 Australia

Arriving at Mt Hart Station for a gourmet lunch at the Homestead and a tour of the grounds. The History of this amazing homestead is not to be missed.

Refreshed and re-energized you then depart Mt Hart and the inland Kimberley landscape and head to the coastal areas.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Pass By: Horizontal Falls, King Sound Via Derby Talbot Bay, Buccaneer Archipelago, Talbot Bay, Western Australia 6728 Australia

You descend over King Sound past the township of Derby the exit point of the mighty Fitzroy River. The thousands of islands that form the Buccaneer Archipelago become distinct. You are now over pearling waters where the many pearl farms of the archipelago become visible.

The Horizontal Waterfalls soon come into sight as the aircraft is positioned, to get the perfect view from the window. This magnificent example of Mother Nature’s power is closely aligned between the gorges of the McLarty Range, located in Talbot Bay. The Horizontal Falls are a fast-moving tidal flow through two narrow fingers, the direction of the flow reverses with each change of tide. As tides in the Kimberley can reach ten metres, a peak tide gives rise to a significant difference in the sea level on either side of each gorge, which creates the rushing water of the Horizontal Falls.

Flying over Talbot Bay, the home of the famous Paspaley Pearling Empire, you can see the hundreds of long lines each housing the valuable creatures that cultivate the pearl. Your Pilot weaves through the islands of Cockatoo and Koolan (mining empires) and heads to Cape Leveque where the red rock cliffs meet the white sandy beaches to the pristine blue waters.

Stop At: Broome-Cape Leveque Rd 240 km north of Broome, Dampier Peninsula, Western Australia 6725 Australia

Walking over the hill at Cape Leveque is like walking into an unspoiled paradise. You will be one of the few that are privy to this wonderful experience. Afternoon tea, refreshments, tea and coffee is served before it is time for a swim in the pristine turquoise waters.

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: Cable Beach, Broome, Western Australia 6725 Australia

After a brief stay, it is back on board for a forty five minute flight down the coast past Lombadina, James Price Point, Sandy Bay, Beagle Bay and Willie Creek before winging gracefully back to Broome.

On arrival into Broome you are welcomed back to Broome Aviation’s departure lounge where your pilot will award you with a free gift and extra information about the tour before you are whisked back to your hotel.
