2-DAY KIMBERLEY TOUR – THE OVERVIEW
Take a relaxed journey into the dramatic gorge and river country of the rugged western Kimberley. Enjoy a cruise through the spectacular Danggu Geikie Gorge, an enlightening exploration of Tunnel Creek, photograph freshwater crocodiles, and enjoy a delicious picnic lunch inside towering Windjana Gorge. Spend the evening in comfortable accommodation on the banks of the mighty Fitzroy River, viewing native birds and wildlife in their own habitat. This adventure offers the perfect way to experience indigenous and colonial history as well as the natural grandeur of this remote and inspiring region.
Derby, Windjana Gorge, Tunnel Creek
This morning we’ll travel through the remote and beautiful landscape of the Western Kimberley, learning of local history, people and the environment crossing the Fitzroy River and visiting the famous Boab Prison Tree. We arrive in the township of Derby located on the tidal mud flats on the edge of the King Sound known for having the highest tidal range of any port in Australia prior to beginning our journey on the remote cattle track, the Gibb River Road, with our first stop at Mowanjam Arts Centre for an insight into the local community of Indigenous artists prior to travelling towards the Napier Range. Once a Devonian reef, these escarpments are over 350 million years old and home to a diverse array of animals and plants. The perfect place to experience the stunning natural beauty of an outback oasis is the 3.5km geological wonder of Windjana Gorge and then exploring Tunnel Creek, a 750-metre cave system carved through the Range, in which we discover stalactites, secret caves and a variety of wildlife. It is here we also learn the legend of Jandamarra, an Aboriginal freedom fighter who used the tunnel as a hide out in the late 1800’s. As the sun sets we journey through the Oscar Ranges and groves of majestic Boab trees before arriving at our comfortable accommodation on the banks of the Fitzroy River.
Stay: Fitzroy River Lodge
Geikie Gorge Cruise
At Danggu Geikie Gorge National Park we explore the magnificent river & gorge by boat. Nature carved this spectacular 30m deep gorge between the ranges during the Devonian geological period. The best way to experience the scenery and abundant wildlife of this natural wonder is to join the Danggu Geikie Gorge Ranger-guided Cruise (included). Danggu Geikie Gorge floods during the wet season, with the swirling water leaving its bleached mark on the colourful gorge walls. Though the water retreats during the dry season, permanent water remains to sustain the wide variety of Kimberley wildlife. Departing Fitzroy Crossing we traverse the West Kimberley, crossing the Fitzroy River once again prior to arriving in Broome in the late afternoon where our tour concludes.
