9 Day 4WD Kimberley Safari from Broome to Darwin - TouringAustralia’s North West is one of the last remaining wilderness regions of this country and during this exciting 9 Day overland safari we’ll take you on a journey that will combine a taste of the Northern Territory with the vastness and beauty of the Kimberley region. Journey the Gibb River Road, sleep under a blanket of Kimberley stars, enjoy evenings round a camp fire, explore El Questro Wilderness Park, check out the famous Bungle Bungle Domes and more, en route to Darwin.

Day 1 – Fitzroy River & Tunnel Creek

Departing Broome we make our first stop at Willare Bridge at the Fitzroy River (seasonal). From here we hit the outback and leave the open road behind as we head for the Oscar Range and on to Tunnel Creek, where a 750m tunnel passes under the Napier Range. Our local Bunuba guide will take us through this remarkable tunnel, sharing the cultural hertage of the area and the story of the Bunuba warrior hero, Jandamarra. (LD)

Day 2 – Windjana Gorge & Mt Barnett

Today we explore Windjana Gorge where there are plenty of freshwater crocodiles – so have your camera handy! We then hit the road again to travel along the famous Gibb River Road, a 600km dirt track that runs right in the heart of the Kimberley region. Depending on the time of year, we may be able to explore Galvins, Adcock or Manning Gorge before setting up camp at Mt Barnett. (BLD)

Day 3-4 – El Questro Station Wilderness Park

We pass through some historic and unusual country as we travel along the Gibb River Road giving you another taste of remote Australia. Crossing the Pentecost River, we get a true outback experience as we reach the famous El Questro Station where we camp for the night. Spend the day exploring the amazing sights of El Questro station highlights include a hike in the beautiful Cockburn Ranges for a swim under the waterfall at Emma Gorge. Tonight we enjoy another night at our El Questro campsite where you might choose to enjoy a well earned beer at the station bar. ((BLD/BLD)

Day 5-6 Purnululu National Park: Bungle Bungles

Sit back and admire the awesome scenery of the Carr Boyd and Durack Ranges as we head to Turkey Creek. We take a challenging 4WD trip into the picture-perfect Bungle Bungles (Purnululu National Park) just in time to catch the sunset over the Osmond Ranges and settle into our overnight bush camp. Get ready for a full day of adventure on day 6! The rock formations of the Bungle Bungles are remarkable and we visit the breathtaking Echidna Chasm and Cathedral Gorge. There’s time to get another perspective of the Bungles by helicopter if you’re up for it (at own expense) to see the rocks from the air before we head back to our overnight bush camp. (BLD/BLD)

Day 7 – Kununurra

It’s time for some serious 4WD action as we wind our way out of the Bungle Bungles towards Kununurra. Time permitting we will have the opportunity to explore Hidden Valley, just a stone’s throw from Kununurra township before making camp at Lake Argyle. (BLD)

Day 8 – Lake Argyle & Victoria River Region

Today we visit Lake Argyle, created by the Ord River Dam. Lake Argyle is the biggest manmade lake in Australia and is 18 times bigger than Sydney Harbour! From here we cross the state border into the Northern Territory to reach camp in the Katherine Region. (BLD)

Day 9 – Katherine & Darwin

We’re on the home stretch now! Today we stop at either Katherine (Nitmiluk) Gorge or take one last swim at Edith Falls. We then make our final journey into Darwin where we bid each other farewell. (BL)
