We will be sightseeing from the air this morning with Helicopter flights of Lake Argyle and the surrounding area. From up here we see the vast expansion of the “Lake” in all her splendour. We take a tour of the “Durack Homestead” - a slice of iconic Australian history. The magnificent homestead was originally built in 1895 by the Durack family on Argyle Downs Station (now mostly submerged by the lake). Later we enjoy a cruise of the Lake. We soak up the atmosphere and the beauty of the region that is the Kimberley, before enjoying our evening meal.
Overnight - Lake Argyle Resort (ensuited cabins)
Day 3 - Tuesday 10 August 2020
Zebra Rock - Ord River (B,D)
We start the day with a visit to Zebra Rock mine, which is situated on a mango plantation on the banks of the Ord River. Here we learn about this coloured stone and how it is turned into beautiful jewellery, wine racks and sculptures. Zebra rocks have only been found in Lake Argyle catchment of northern Australia and are believed to have formed 1.2 billion years ago.
Later in the day we see the dam wall, which holds back the equivalent of 21 Sydney Harbour waters before taking a fantastic cruise down the Ord River to Kununurra. We spot crocodiles and birdlife before reaching the lower end of the river.
Day 4 - Wednesday 11 August 2020
Kununurra - El Questro - Emma Gorge (B)
Today we travel along the Gibb River Road to El Questro Station and Zebedee Hot Springs. It’s time for a dip before visiting the Station on the Pentecost River. This is a beautiful area of the Kimberley, a must see. Later we continue to Emma Gorge which is hidden within the fiery red of El Questro's Cockburn Ranges. Later we return to Kununurra after a spectacular day in the Kimberley. (Emma Gorge Difficulty: To the half way point the first part of this trail is classed as relatively easy with some sections of broken rock and riverbed. From that point it then becomes more difficult. (It is a 2 hour return walk)
Overnight - Lakeside Resort (ensuited room)
Day 5 - Thursday 12 August 2020
Halls Creek - China Wall (B,D)
This morning you have the chance to fly over the amazing Bungle Bungles - Fixed Wing Aircraft - $399 per person, 2 hours, please reserve your place at time of booking.
Departing Lake Argyle and Kununurra, we head to Warmun for a morning tea stop. From here we travel to the town of Halls Creek, situated in the heart of the Kimberley. Halls Creek is the gateway to a range of world renowned natural attractions, one being the China Wall, which we visit tomorrow. But for now we explore the town and settle into our accommodation.
Overnight - Halls Creek Motel (ensuited motel room)
Day 6 - Friday 13 August 2020
Mary River - Fitzroy Crossing (B,D)
We start the day with a trip to old Halls Creek. This is a very significant place. It is the site of the first gold discovery in Western Australia and where the WA gold rushes began. In 1885 Charles Hall found a 28 ounce nugget. Men (very few women) soon streamed into the interior in search of their fortune. Also we check out “China Wall”. China Wall is a natural vein of sub-vertical white quartz rising up to 6 metres above the surrounding country in places. This striking formation transects the country for many kilometres, rising high out of the ground and then disappearing back into the earth again. Later we enjoy a stop at Mary River for an afternoon cuppa and then we continue to our evening stop, which is Fitzroy Crossing.
Overnight - Fitzroy Lodge - (ensuited Safari tents)
Day 7 - Saturday 14 August 2020
Tunnel Creek - Windjana Gorge (B,L,D)
Departing Fitzroy Crossing, we travel towards Tunnel Creek. Tunnel Creek National Park covers 91 hectares in the Napier Range, a range that can also be seen at Windjana Gorge. The main feature of the park is of course the 750 metre tunnel that a creek has worn through the Napier Range. The tunnel is the oldest cave system in Western Australia. It became famous in the late 1800's. Aboriginal leader and "outlaw" Jandamarra (better known as "Pigeon") was using the "Cave of Bats" as his hideout. We explore the tunnel and its mysteries before making our way to Windjana Gorge. Windjana Gorge is a 3.5 km gorge, carved out of the Napier Range by the Lennard River. The walls on both sides of Windjana Gorge are 30 to 100 metres high, and the gorge is over 100 metres wide. It’s here we investigate this wonderful area. Later we travel towards the Gibb River Road to our accommodation.
Overnight - Spinafex Hotel - (ensuited motel room)
Day 8 - Sunday 15 August 2020
Derby to Broome (B,D)
We head towards Broome today, but first we visit Derby and the Famous Prison Tree. Derby's claim to fame is having the highest tides of any Australian port. 11 m (36 feet) of tidal difference means there is an enormous amount of water rushing in and out every 6 hours. Derby calls itself the "Home of the Boab Tree". Boabs are used as street trees and give the town a special character. We check out the jetty before making our way to Broome. In the afternoon we head to Cable Beach and enjoy fish and chips at this Iconic spot in the Kimberley.
Overnight - Mercure Broome – (ensuited motel room)
Day 9 - Monday 16 August 2020
Broome - Roebuck Bay - Chinatown (B)

Whatever you fancy, Broome will captivate you.
