The elemental expanses of Kununurra and the Kimberley are painted with red dirt, golden sunlight and glitter-bombed night skies. Connect with nature, soar over untouched wilderness, then retreat into luxurious surrounds on this wild, 728-kilometre journey over five glorious days, best experienced between May and October.

On the banks of the mighty Ord River, Kununurra is the launch pad to adventure. Hook barramundi on line or fork, sip sunset cocktails shaken with locally distilled rum, or slip on a rare pink Argyle diamond – Kununurra surprises and delights.

Take a helicopter flight to witness the extraordinary magnitude of the Bungle Bungle Range in World Heritage-listed Purnululu National Park. Get even closer to these dazzling sandstone domes, dramatic red-rock chasms and deep-cut gorges on a guided hike.

The call of more than 250 bird species is the soundtrack to your lunch or sunset cruise on Lake Argyle, one of the southern hemisphere’s largest freshwater lakes.

In the heart of the Kimberley, 700,000-acre El Questro is a former cattle station turned homestead that’s bigger than Luxembourg. One of the last true frontiers, explore canyons, hot springs, rivers, mountains and gorges on four-wheel drive trips, cultural tours and guided bushwalks. In the evening, lap up your surrounds in a luxury lodge, or by a roaring campfire under a blanket of outback stars.

Spread your wings on a flight along the Kimberly Coast. Amid the awe-inspiring scenery, the majestic twin falls plunging down fiery-red rock cliffs into the King George River are truly unforgettable.
