9 DAY DARWIN TO BROOME 4WD ADVENTURE (KAT)
- Duration: 9 Days (approx.)
- Product code: 9DB
The Kimberley is a rugged and remote region with a 'Wet Season' from November to April and a 'Dry Season' from May to October. During 'The Wet', temperatures range from 35o C to 45o C with very high humidity and heavy rain.
These varying conditions throughout the year mean that the Kimberley and its attractions are constantly changing. It is because of this we don't provide a day-by-day fixed itinerary, as we prefer to provide the best possible tour at the time you travel. We do fit in all the major attractions and many others, however the order or time spent in various places may change.
Unseasonal rain and road conditions can also affect the itinerary.
Departing Darwin at 6am we travel south down the Stuart Highway and visit Edith Falls for a swim. Then it's Katherine Hot Springs before travelling west towards Western Australia to set up the first of our bush camps on the Victoria River.
The next day we enter Western Australia and explore and swim in Lake Argyle on a fantastic and unique boat cruise before setting up camp on an exclusive island on the Lake. This is regularly voted as one of the tour highlights.
After returning from the Island we travel through Kununurra, Turkey Creek and set up camp in Purnululu National Park, home of the Bungle Bungles, where we hike and explore the Beehive Domes, Echidna Chasm, Picaninny Creek and Cathedral Gorge. Optional Helicopter Flights are available at extra cost and are highly recommended.
We then travel back up through Kununurra and spend the next 4 days on the Gibb River Road. We next visit Emma Gorge (El Questro), the Pentecost River, Cockburn Ranges, Barnett, Manning, Galvans, Adcock, Bell and Lennard Gorges. We swim, hike and climb through these pristine gorges, exploring, jumping into pools, and viewing ancient Aboriginal Wandjina and Bradshaw Art.
Finally we visit Windjana Gorge, wade through Tunnel Creek, visit Derby's Prison Boab Tree and arrive in Broome in the early evening.
