Combined with the added experience of visiting some of the major attractions of the South West Kimberley – spectacular coastal scenery and rugged gorges – The Kimberley at it’s best.

Broome to The Horizontal Waterfall and Houseboat Stopover Day 1

Your journey today will start at 8.00 am from Broome for your adventure to the Kimberley. On arrival at Derby a local guide will show you this unique outback town. Derby’s claim to fame is the highest tides of any Australian port – there is 11 m (36 feet) of tidal difference which means there is an enormous amount of water rushing in and out every 6 hours. Visit the unusual Boab Tree Prison, and the unique Derby Circular Wharf, time for a guided Heritage Walk of this quaint Kimberley town.

After lunch at the local pub join your flight direct to The Horizontal Waterfall, transfer to your fast boat for an amazing experience when tides permit access the scenic bays and creeks beyond The Falls. Swim in the shark/croc free cage and feed the friendly fish.

Spend the night aboard a luxury houseboat and enjoy the privacy of your air-conditioned cabin. Enjoy freshly caught Barramundi, which is cooked to perfection by the chef. Relax with a drink as you take in the amazing Kimberley sunset.

Meals:
Morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner
Accommodation:
Luxury Houseboat at Horizontal Waterfall

Derby to Geikie Gorge and Fitzroy Crossing Day 2

This morning you will wake on the calm, tranquil waters of Talbot Bay. An early morning breakfast before departure for Derby flying low across the Buccaneer Archipelago and King Sound prior to landing.

Morning tea in Derby before your journey to Geikie Gorge National Park. Here you undertake a cruise on the Fitzroy River – discover the beauty of the cliffs and the tranquil waterway which becomes a raging torrid in the wet season. There is evidence of an ancient limestone barrier reef which was laid down in an ancient sea that covered a large part of the Kimberley in Devonian times, some 350 million years ago.

Make your way through The Kimberley to your overnight comfortable accommodation at Fitzroy River Lodge on the banks of the mighty Fitzroy River.

Breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner

Fitzroy River Lodge 3 star

Tunnel Creek, Windjana Gorge, Gibb River Road To Broome Day 3

Alas it’s farewell to the quaint and historical town of Fitzroy Crossing. Today’s first stop will be at Tunnel Creek, where a creek flows from the eastern side of the mountain through a 300 metre crevice to the eastern side. It was here that an Aboriginal man, whose land was being changed forever, defied the efforts of the police to catch him for being disruptive to the settlers and cattlemen. The story of Jandamarra has been recorded in a book and made into a movie which is now an indigenous legend of an Aboriginal freedom fighter who used the tunnel as a hide-out in the late 1880s.

Next stop is Windjana Gorge, a 3.5 km geographical wonder. See crocodiles sunbaking on the waters edge as you walk along the gorge track. A picnic lunch followed by a rugged journey along the infamous Gibb River Road – stop to detour into some beautiful waterholes as you appreciate the rugged land. Dorothy McKellar’s poem truly identifies The Kimberley as you see it today. Quote: “ I love a sunburnt country, a land of sweeping plains, of ragged mountain ranges, of droughts and flooding rain. I love her far horizons, I love her jewel-sea, her beauty and her terror – the wide brown land for me!”

Time may permit you to detour back into Derby for afternoon tea or perhaps a stop under a shady tree. Your arrival back in Broome will be approx. 6.00 pm
