Why you'll love this trip
  • Spend every night camping in the Australian Outback, under a star-studded Milky Way sky. There is little, if any, reception out here, so it’s the perfect chance to disconnect, recharge and get back to basics in the heart of nature.
  • Explore Lake Argyle and take an optional cruise on the still waters, looking out for crocodiles, wallabies and rare birds against the mountain island backdrop.
  • Spend two days exploring the Bungle Bungles – including gorges, unique rock formations, hidden waterholes, sandstone towers, Echidna Chasm and Cathedral Gorge.
  • Take refreshing swims in rock pools, waterfalls and watering holes, travel along the Gibb River Road in a 4WD and hike through rivers past towering red cliffs, rocks and spires.
  • Explore the unique geology of Dimalurru (Tunnel Creek) – a limestone cave system home to bats, stalactites and fascinating First Nations history.

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.
