Day 1 Broome/Windjana Gorge

Arrive in Broome, a coastal enclave famous for its exquisite beaches, idyllic climate and laidback approach to life. Perhaps consider arriving a day or so earlier to lap up the town's delights, as our trip doesn't spend much time here. Bid goodbye to this seaside town as we head off into Australia's famous Outback.

Enjoy another night at the El Questro campsite, perhaps tucking into a beer or two at the Swinging Arm Bar.
