Escape to the top end of Australia with these tours from Broome.
This remote city is the capital of the sparsely populated, ruggedly beautiful Kimberley region, a place to commune with nature and learn about the history and traditions of the oldest culture on earth. Strike out through the gorges and creeks of this vast region to Darwin or down to Perth, making your way through national parks to sleep in outback cattle stations, dip into watering holes, and listen to outback yarns over a beer. Australia doesn't get much better than this.

Western Australia FAQs
Trips from 1 January 2023 onwards
From 1 January 2023, Intrepid will no longer require travellers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (excluding all Polar trips and select adventure cruises). However, we continue to strongly recommend that all Intrepid travellers and leaders get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.
Specific proof of testing or vaccination may still be required by your destination or airline. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.
There are several ways to get to Western Australia including flying, catching public transport, and self-driving, with the most time-efficient one being different depending on where you're travelling from. There are over 10 public airports you can fly into in Western Australia but the most popular one is Perth Airport. From there, it's easy to organise transportation to your final destination of either Margaret River or further inland.
There's no one 'best time' to visit Western Australia as each season promises unique activities and breathtaking scenery. However, the most popular time to visit is during the summer season (December, January, and February) as it coincides with Australia's school holidays and the weather is warm and sunny. If you're wanting a holiday without the crowds, the months of March-May and September-October are the best times to visit as the weather is still reasonably warm and enjoyable, especially if you're spending long periods of time outside.
Our Western Australian tours are all about action and adventure so there is no need to bring any fancy clothes. Sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat are a must, even in winter, as the sun reflects off the water and the white sand of the Margaret River region and Ningaloo Reef. Bring a good pair of walking shoes so you can explore the national parks comfortably. A light jumper is useful if you are going to be out on the water for lengthy periods of time.
There are plenty of animals to spot during your travels around Western Australia including 141 of Australia's 207 mammal species (25 of which are only found in WA), around 400 reptile species, and roughly 1,600 marine species. Tick them off the list below as you go:
- Bottlenose dolphins
- Whale sharks
- Australian sea lions
