SHORTLIST

Contrasts Of The Kimberley

Fancy a dip in a freshwater swimming hole or even the chance to sleep under the stars with the soothing sounds of wildlife around you? The Kimberley is where your next adventure begins on this 10 day escorted tour.

A whopping three times the size of England, with a population of just 40,000, it’s clear why this part of the country is known as one of the world’s last wilderness frontiers. Despite its vast remoteness, it certainly dsn’t lack in great food, friendly locals, unique experiences and romantic beach towns.

Starting in Darwin, you’ll travel west through some of the most vast landscapes you’ll ever encounter, to Broome, with overnight stops in Darwin, Katherine, Kununurra, El Questro Station, Fitzroy Crossing and Broome.

From beginning to end, you won’t be short of fascinating vistas on this guided holiday. Visit stunning Katherine Gorge and the expanse of Lake Argyle; Relax in the warm waters of the Zebedee Thermal Springs in El Questro Station, enjoy a cruise through the stunning Geikie Gorge, known for its sheer white and grey walls at Fitzroy Crossing; and, bask in the sunshine and sea-salty air during your stay at beautiful Broome.

With endless amounts of adventure and pinch me moments, you won’t return home the same person after experiencing the magic of Australia’s northwest corner.
