Itinerary

Day 1 - Friday 14 August 2020

Melbourne - Kununurra (D)

Welcome to Sisterhood Womens Travel.  Meet your Sisterhood Hostess and fellow travellers at the Melbourne Airport for our flight to Kununurra in the Northern Territory.  Sit back and enjoy the flight as we fly over the vast Australian Outback.  Upon our arrival we'll be met by our Kimberley tour team. Firstly we'll visit Zebra Rock Gallery, 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. Later we head to our accommodation to check in and enjoy a welcome dinner - a wonderful way to start our Kimberley adventure!

Overnight - Lakeside Resort (ensuited motel room)

Day 2 - Saturday 15 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 of this trail the first part 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 motel room)

Today you have the chance to fly over the amazing Bungle Bungles - Fixed Wing Aircraft - $399 per person, please reserve your place at time of booking.

Day 3 - Sunday 16 August 2020

Lake Argyle (B,D)

We start the day with a fantastic cruise up the Ord River to Lake Argyle. We spot crocodiles and birdlife before reaching the dam wall, which holds back the equivalent of 21 Sydney Harbour waters. We are met by our driver and taken to the lookout for a stunning view over the lake and Ord River. Tonight we settle into our accommodation at Lake Argyle Resort for 2 nights. There will be time to relax, take a swim in the beautiful infinity pool, before our pre dinner drinks and evening meal. “Oh this is the life”.

Overnight - Lake Argyle Resort (ensuited cabins)

Day 4 - Monday 17 August 2020

Lake Argyle Cruise - Helicopter (B,D)

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 5 - Tuesday 18 August 2020

Halls Creek - China Wall (B,D)

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 - Wednesday 19 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 - Thursday 20 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 - Birdwood Station – (Savannah Huts – share facilities)

Day 8 - Friday 21 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 - Saturday 22 August 2020

Broome - Roebuck Bay - Chinatown (B)

Today is all about Broome. We have a town tour before you can explore this pearling town. Shop for pearls in Chinatown; see dinosaur footprints and birdwatch in Roebuck Bay or you can stroll through the famous Broome markets. Whatever you fancy, Broome will captivate you. 

Overnight - Mercure Broome (ensuited motel room)

Day 10 - Sunday 23 August 2020

Broome - Melbourne (B)

After a relaxing breakfast this morning, check out and transfer to the airport for your flight back home to Melbourne. What an amazing Outback adventure we've shared.  We thank you for travelling with Sisterhood Womens Travel and look forward to welcoming you back!
