The Kimberley is three times the size of England, yet with a tiny population! It covers most of northern WA, from a little south of Broome across to the NT border. Being such a big area, it has quite diverse scenery and some very special places and experiences.
For example, the Lake Argyle region is fascinating. The Lake itself is freshwater, created by the damming of the Ord River. It covers 980km2, and provides water to the immense Ord River irrigation area. We cruise the Ord River, visit the famous Argyle Diamond Mine, and tour the region’s centre: Kununurra.
Another highlight is a scenic flight over the Bungle Bungles! These rock structures are one of the best known features of the Kimberley, and the best way to see them is from the air.
Further west is Fitzroy Crossing – a great base to allow us to visit the incredible Geikie Gorge. Cruising past the Gorge’s stunning towering cliff walls is a fabulous highlight of the journey.
Our trip concludes at the pearling town of Broome. Broome has developed as the main gateway to the Kimberley and is a fascinating place to explore, with its incredible beaches and its pearling industry. We experience both aspects, plus more.
And there’s even more to this trip: Darwin and Katherine Gorge/Nitmiluk, just to mention two. It’s an experience of a lifetime, and all the better in a small group. So come away with us this winter!
We’ll be flying from Adelaide to Darwin on the 23rd of July, and flying home on the 5th of August and you can read the complete tour itinerary here.
