Rugged wilderness by day, outback comfort by night
Find out what makes the Kimberley region so special on a nine-day Premium adventure through Australia’s North-West. Learn about the rich First Nations history of the area from Traditional Custodians, take guided walks that illuminate local geography, swim in gorges filled with clear waters and under waterfalls, and hike through red-rock formations and palm oases. With comfortable accommodation included each night, the only thing standing between you and a great night’s sleep will be stories around the fire or watching the night sky come alive in a wash of stars. From Windjana Gorge and Purnululu National Park to vast El Questro station, the Kimberley simply can’t be topped.
If you’re looking for a change of scenery, you’ve found it. From cruising between the sheer, multi-coloured walls of Geikie Gorge to jumping into red rock-ringed waterholes, this is a real back to nature escape.
Explore the Tunnel Creek cave system and learn about Jandamarra, a First Nations freedom fighter who used the caves as a hideout in the late 1800s.
Hike your way to Cathedral Gorge and wonder at the natural amphitheatre of red rock, hollowed out over millions of years to create this massive acoustic wonder.
Delve into Dreamtime with a local Gooniyandi guide as you hear traditional stories and discover the secrets of Mimbi Caves, a sanctuary of crystal-clear pools, rare fossils and ancient rock art.
Marvel at the red domes of Purnululu National Park – your spectacular eco-friendly feature stay lodge in the heart of the park provides the perfect base to discover its gorges, valleys and fiery sunsets.
On some days of the trip, you’ll spend several hours driving through very sparse areas of Australia. Sit back and enjoy landscapes that you would miss in any other form of travel. The drive days can be long, but it’s as much about the journey as the destination, and half the fun is the camaraderie.
Weather conditions can be extreme in the Kimberley. Have a think about what time of the year best suits you to travel.
You’ll be travelling through regions with very little mobile service or internet connection.
