The Kimberley is an area three times the size of England, yet with a tiny population! It covers the most northern section of WA, from Broome to the NT border. Being such a big area, it has incredibly diverse scenery and some very special places.
For example, the Lake Argyle region is fascinating. The Lake itself is freshwater, and was created by the damming of the Ord River and covers 980km. We cruise the Ord River, and visit the famous Argyle Diamond Mine, as well as touring the region’s centre: Kununurra.
Another highlight of our trip 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, so named because the town is located by the crossing of the Fitzroy River. It’s a great base to allow us to cruise the incredible Geikie Gorge, with its stunning towering cliff walls. It’s a fabulous highlight of the journey.
Our travel concludes at the pearling town of Broome. Broome has developed as the main gateway to the Kimberley, and is famous for its incredible beaches and the pearling industry, and we experience both aspects of this town, plus more.
There’s so much more to this trip: Darwin and Katherine Gorge/Nitmiluk, just to mention two. It’s an experience of a lifetime, and all the better when enjoyed in a small group. So why not read the detailed itinerary here and plan this very special trip as a winter escape this year! We’ll be flying from Adelaide to Darwin on the 23rd of July, and flying home on the 5th of August.
