10 Day Kimberley 4WD Safari, Broome - Darwin


Day 1 (L)

You will be collected from your hotel at 8am this morning to begin your 10 day 4WD safari through the Kimberley region.

This morning we travel to Willaire and then continue to Fitzroy Crossing. After lunch you'll take a ranger led boat cruise through Geike Gorge, where flood waters of the Fitzroy River have carved the 30-metre deep gorge through the limestone at the junction of the Oscar and Geike Ranges.

In the dry season, the river transforms itself into a quiet stream strung out beneath the towering cliffs of the Devonian reef. Here, layers of fossils and the limestone strata of an ancient reef are exposed in cross sections, showing glimpses of life in the Devonian period before reptiles or mammals evolved.

Overnight accommodation- air-conditioned safari lodges with en-suites at Fitzroy River Lodge

Day 2 (B,L,D)

Our destination this morning is Tunnel Creek, a 750m long limestone tunnel in the Napier Range, carved into the rock over thousands of years. View stalactites and stalacmites and hear the storyTunnel Creek of Jandamarra, who used the tunnel as a hideout in the late 1800’s. 

The afternoon is spent exploring Windjana Gorge, where we can take a walk into Windjana gorge, part of an ancient Devonian reef system where the Lennard River has cut through the Napier range. We view the fossilised reef system and freshwater crocodiles can often be seen lazing around on the river banks.  

Overnight accommodation – air- conditioned station rooms with shared facilities at Mt. Hart Wilderness Lodge, or en-suite safari tents , on a DBB basis

**months after we had already booked this accommodation, Mt Hart introduced a minimum 2 night stay, so we can no longer stay here on this trip and alternative accommodation has been organised**

Day 3 (B,L,D)

After breakfast, we make our way through the Napier and King Leopold Ranges to Bell Gorge, believed to be the most picturesque in the Kimberley. En-route we stop to look at the King Leopold Range lookout, which offers great photo opportunities. We can swim and relax at the stunning waterfall and plungepool.

Then we travel to Galvans gorge, where a short walk leads to a pretty gorge and plungepool, surroWindjana Gorgeunded by boab trees. It also has some interesting rock art. 

Our destination today is Mt Elizabeth Station, a working cattle station, established in 1945 by the pioneering Lacey Family, who still own and run the property today. En-route we visit an art site in the Gibb River area. 

Once we’ve checked into our Mt Elizabeth accommodation, you should have a couple of hours to take the station nature walk or relax and enjoy your surrounds, before dinner.

Purnululu National park (the Bungle Bungles) is famous for the ancient range of unusual beehive-shaped domes, gorges and chasms over 350 million years old.  The section of road into the park is quite challenging and will give you a real sense of off-road adventure !
