Day 1 -Broome to Windjana Gorge

Departing Broome we stop briefly at Willare Bridge, where a rushing torrent of water flows in the mighty Fitzroy River (seasonal). From here we leave the bitumen behind as we head for the Oscar Range and on to Tunnel Creek, where a 750 metre tunnel passes under the Napier Range. The area has a rich bushranger history ask your guide for the true story! (LD)

Day 2 - Windjana Gorge to Mt Barnett

We explore Windjana Gorge (there's loads of freshwater crocodiles here!) before we hit the track again to travel along the famous Gibb River. Depending on the time of year, we may be able to explore Galvins or Adcock Gorge before setting up camp at Manning Gorge. (BLD)

Day 3 - Gibb River Road and Gorges

Today it's time for swimming and hiking in the Kimberleys! Explore the striking Manning Gorge and time permitting, we head into Barnett Gorge. Your experienced guide will use their local knowledge to determine the best gorges for you to explore. We're in for another night under the stars at our bush camp. (BLD)

Day 4 - Gibb River Road to El Questro Station

We pass through some ancient and spectacular country as we travel along the Gibb River Road. Crossing the Pentecost River, we reach the famous El Questro Station. We walk into the beautiful Cockburn Ranges for a swim under the waterfall at Emma Gorge before retiring for the night. (BLD)

Day 5 - El Questro to Bungle Bungles

Today 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 Bungle Bungle (Purnululu) National Park for sunset over the Osmond Ranges and our overnight bush camp. (BLD)

Day 6 - Bungle Bungle National Park

It's a full day of exploration today. The rock formations of the Bungle Bungles massif are remarkable and we visit breathtaking Echidna Chasm and magnificent Cathedral Gorge. There's time to get another perspective of the Bungles by helicopter if you choose (at own expense) before we head back to our overnight bush camp. (BLD)

Day 7 - Bungle Bungles to Kununurra Region

It's time for some 4WD action as we wind our way out of the Bungle Bungles on our way to Kununurra. Time permitting we will have the opportunity to explore the Hidden Valley, just a stones throw from Kununurra township. (BLD)

Day 8 - Kununurra Region to Victoria River Region

Today we visit Lake Argyle, created by the Ord River Dam. Lake Argyle is the biggest man-made lake in Australia and is eighteen times bigger than Sydney Harbour! We spend some time here this morning before crossing the state border into the Northern Territory to reach camp near the Victoria River. (BLD)

Day 9 - Victoria River Region to Darwin

We're on the home run now! It's a short hop across to Katherine where we will stop at either Katherine (Nitmiluk) Gorge, or take one last refreshing swim at Edith Falls. We then make our final journey into Darwin. (BL)
