A bit wild and a whole lot romantic, the Kimberley is one of the last true wilderness areas on the planet – and this seven-day escape, clocking in just shy of 7,000 kilometres, is a greatest-hits collection of some of its top experiences. Bookended by Broome and Purnululu National Park, embark on an adventure of the senses that’s best encountered from May to October.
Tropical Broome is the gateway to the Kimberley. A fascinating cultural and historical melting pot, set against a backdrop of red-ochre rocks and cerulean-blue waters. Here you can discover ancient culture, some of the biggest tides in the world, dinosaur footprints, and lustrous South Sea pearls. Join a camel-safari for the ultimate way to experience world-famous Cable Beach’s sugar-white sands and psychedelic sunsets.
Time to voyage through the Kimberley, where the spirit of the Aboriginal people is imbued in these age-old lands. From Fitzroy Crossing, join a guided tour led by the local Bunuba people into Danggu Geikie Gorge for a deeply personal perspective of its fossilised reef walls. The Gooniyandi people also conduct tours of the 350-million-year-old Mimbi Caves.
Halls Creek is a launching pad for the Wolfe Creek Crater, the world’s second-largest meteor crater. Walk the rim, or get a bird’s-eye view of this astonishing sight on a scenic flight.
The Bungle Bungles’ dramatic sandstone karsts are one of the most extraordinary landscapes on the planet. Found in World Heritage-listed Purnululu National Park, these bumble bee-striped formations were unknown to most people until 1983. On foot, or in the air, the spectacular beauty of Purnululu National Park’s impressive gorges are unforgettable.
Synonymous with Kimberley adventure, Kununurra and its surrounds reconnects you with the water. Fish for barramundi, kayak the Ord River, or hop on a boat cruise where birds are your riverside companions.
