Itinerary

Day 1: Darwin to Katherine Region

Welcome to the tropical city of Darwin, where your overland adventure begins. After meeting up with your group and leader, head south and stop at either Edith Falls for a swim or explore Katherine Gorge in Nitmiluk National Park. This is where the group will have lunch (seasonal choice). Head to your overnight private campsite on the edge of Nitmiluk National Park, where permanent tents with swags await you. In the evening, settle down for dinner with the group. 

Meal(s): Lunch, Dinner 

 

Day 2: Katherine to Lake Argyle

After breakfast this morning, continue on to Lake Argyle, which has been created by the Ord River Dam. Admire the sheer size of this 700 square kilometre man-made spectacle. The lake is home to many species of native fish and thousands of freshwater crocodiles. Take an optional sunset cruise before setting up camp nearby for the night. 

Meal(s): Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

 

Day 3: Purnululu National park (The Bungles Bungles)

Start the morning with some free time for a stroll around the picturesque town of Kununurra. Don’t forget to use this time to stock up on any last minute supplies before heading out into the remote Kimberley region. Once out of town its time for some 4WD action as your experienced guide winds our specially designed truck across the challenging terrain of the entrance to Purnululu National Park, home of the iconic Bungle Bungles. It’s a rugged ride but the scenery is fantastic. Enjoy an amazing Kimberley sunset at your bush camp. 

Meal(s): Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

 

Day 4: Purnululu National park (The Bungles Bungles)

After breakfast prepare for a full day of activities, as the group heads back out to explore the remarkable rock formations of the Bungle Bungles. Hike to the thin, red gap of Echidna Chasm and the enormous Cathedral Gorge. There’s also the opportunity to experience a helicopter flight over the Bungle Bungles (at your own expense). As the sun goes down, head back to your overnight bush camp.

Meal(s): Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

 

Day 5: Bungles Bungles and El Questro

After breakfast today, get back on the road toward El Questro Station. Admire the remarkable scenery of the Carr Boyd and Durack Ranges, and head along the vast nature trail of Warnum (Turkey Creek). In the late afternoon, head to your campsite in El Questro, a wilderness park since 1991 for dinner and a cool drink at the swinging Arm Bar.

Meal(s): Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

 

Day 6: El Questro Station

Spend the day exploring El Questro. Start off with a dip at Zebedee Springs before taking on a hike in the Cockburn Ranges for a swim under the waterfall at Emma Gorge. Tonight, enjoy another night at the El Questro campsite.

Meal(s): Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

 

Day 7: Gibb River Road and Mount Barnett 

After breakfast, its time to hit the road again and start travelling along the legendary Gibb River Road, a 600 kilometre dirt track running through the centre of the Kimberley. Spend the afternoon exploring the stunning Manning Gorge. The waterfall here is wide and powerful, and there’s a large deep pool. You can swim right up and under the falls. This is the ideal opportunity to take some great pictures of local wildlife, so be sure to have your camera ready. This evening we camp at Mount Barnett by the banks of a crystal clear freshwater river, perfect to cool off in after your day hiking.

Meal(s): Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

 

Day 8: Windjana Gorge

The western Kimberley region is full of endless stunning gorges just waiting to be explored and this morning is no exception. After breakfast, continue along the Gibb River Road visiting either Galvin or Adcock Gorge before adventuring to Bell Gorge – a hidden highlight. 
This idyllic retreat, considered amongst the most beautiful gorge on the Gibb River Road, boasts cascading waterfalls and crystal clear pools filled with water from the wet season rains that fall in the King Leopold Ranges. Surrounded by a horseshoe of bright orange rock wall, there are smooth rocks to lounge on and welcome areas of shade. The afternoon sees you head to Windjana Gorge, a segment of 375 million-year-old reef that was once underwater. Cut through by the Lennard River, which runs during the wet season then breaks up into little billabongs during the dry, this gorge attracts many species of bird and bat and is a great spot to see wild freshwater crocodiles.

 

Meal(s): Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

 

Day 9: Tunnel Creek and Broome 

Begin the day exploring the Napier Range. The major attraction here is Tunnel Creek, an extensive limestone cave system that extends 750 metres underground. Inside, shards of sunlight stream in through crevices, little bats flutter about and enormous stalactites rear down from the ceiling. In the late 1800s, an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander man called Jandamarra waged a one-man uprising against European settlers, becoming a hero to his people. You’ll hear a bit about his legacy during a tour through Tunnel Creek, then make the final drive on to Broome, hopefully arriving in time for a stunning Cable Beach sunset.

 

Meal(s): Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

 

Day 10: Broome

Today we go out on a high with a Broome sights tour, learning about the rich history of the area in the pearling industry. We take the truck onto the beach for a picnic day this afternoon, and perhaps some beach cricket? If you need to leave Broome today you can book a flight at any time.

Meal(s): Breakfast, Lunch
