Why you'll love this trip
  • Spend your nights camping in the Australian Outback under a star-studded Milky Way sky. There is almost no reception here, so it’s the perfect chance to disconnect, recharge and get back to basics in the heart of nature. 
  • Explore the unique geology of Dimalurru (Tunnel Creek) – a limestone cave system home to bats, stalactites and fascinating First Nations history.  
  • Spend two full days exploring the Bungle Bungles – including magnificent gorges, unique rock formations, hidden waterholes, sandstone towers and Echidna Chasm and Cathedral Gorge. 
  • Cruise Lake Argyle – Western Australia's largest and Australia's second-largest freshwater man-made reservoir – on an optional boat ride on the still waters, looking out for crocodiles, wallabies and rare birds. 
  • Take refreshing swims in waterfalls, rock pools, and watering holes, travel along the Gibb River Road in a 4WD and hike through rivers past towering red cliffs, rocks and spires.  

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip is operated and run by our trusted partner, Kimberley Wild Expeditions. You will be travelling with a mixture of both Kimberley Wild Expeditions customers and Intrepid customers.
  • On some days of this trip, you’ll spend many hours driving through very sparse areas of Australia. Sit back and enjoy landscapes that you’d miss in any other form of travel. Extra space can be tight, and conditions may feel a little cramped. Think of it as a great way to get to know your fellow travellers. The drive days can be long, but it's as much about the journey as the destination, and half the fun is the camaraderie!
  • This trip involves some camping out in nature (or staying in backpacker-style dormitory accommodation, including bunk beds) so the facilities are very basic. It is definitely a trip for either younger, fit travellers or the young at heart and fit in body! A lack of emphasis on creature comforts makes this an authentic experience of the Australian outback. Some locations will have little to no Internet connection or phone service. 
  • This trip involves activities like hiking on uneven terrain and clambering over boulders. It is best suited to travellers with good mobility and fitness. Details on physical activities can be found in the itinerary.
