Know More about this tour

Your tour begins with an early morning departure from Broome as you travel east into the Kimberley gorges by 4WD. Listen to your guide's expert commentary on the history and geography of the countryside you're traveling through, and stop for morning tea at the Willare Roadhouse beside the Fitzroy River. Visit the historic Boab Prison Tree, measuring more than 50 feet (15 meters) and believed to be more than 1,500 years old.
Your tour continues along the Gibb River Road, traveling towards the ancient Napier Range and Windjana Gorge. Experience the tranquil beauty of this remote oasis, where the limestone walls rise more than 300 feet (90 meters). Keep an eye out for freshwater crocodiles and birds hiding in the Lennard River that runs through Windjana Gorge, and look for fossils of shells and sea creatures on the soaring rock walls.
After enjoying a picnic lunch at Windjana Gorge, spend the afternoon exploring Tunnel Creek on a guided walking tour. Discover secret caves in the network of underground tunnels that run for half a mile beneath the Napier Range, and take a refreshing swim in a picturesque waterhole. Hear legends from the past, including the tale of Jandamarra, a local Aborigine who led an insurrection against the settlers and hid out in the gorge in the 1890s.
The last stop on your tour is a sunset visit to the ruins of Lillimooloora Station, revealing the history of white settlement in this area more than a century ago.

  • A long day but we saw everything advertised. Even came carefully close to crocodiles. Great guide who was knowledgeable and informative. Food was good for an outback experience. Worth the trip.

  • The tour was a long day and much to see most of the time. Our driver, Ross, kept the commentary flowing when it needed to be and gave us some breaks to concentrate on the scenery and wildlife. The knowledge displayed by Ross of the country, its stories, the indigenous people of the area kept us all entertained and informed. We would recommend that, for the tunnel walk, specialist boating shoes would make it easier. I know that the instruction given was for shoes that could get wet, but more than that is needed. The food was tasty and adequate well served and kept cold. Drinks were plentiful and again cold. Thanks Ross for being a great host and great company.

  • Realise that the Kimberley is a huge place, but found this tour extremely long for just seeing two sights for a short time at each site. Almost 12 hours in travel time to see places for 2 - 3 hours

  • This is a good tour to see to beautiful places, we had a knowable guide and the provided food was good. This is a long day so be prepared, we departed our resort at 8.00 am and didn't return until 9.15 pm. The first stop for morning tea is a 2 hour drive, followed by a four hour drive to tunnel Creek were we had lunch before exploring Tunnel Creek. You will need to bring walking shoes and ones to get wet, as you wade through some water about 30 cm in September. A 30 to 40 minute drive to Windjana Gorge, were we saw Fresh water Crocodiles, Bats and other animals. You then drive back to the morning tea stop for dinner at your own cost ordered at morning tea.

  • Very long day,15 hours 900 km round trip but well worth it. We saw lots of things we would never had seen. Great vehicle and driver good food.

  • The experience of walking through the gorge was breathtaking,to see the way the water has carved the rock. Looking at 80+freshwater water crocs was thrilling.
    Tunnel creek was something else to wonder at as you walked through the tunnel and return.our guide from Kimberley wild was very good .

  • This was an excellent tour! The guide was knowledgable and funny. The trip was long but well worth the time. I would highly recommend it. The tea and lunch prepared by the guide was really good. Bring water it is hot!

  • Fantastic day out! Great food for lunch. Great way to see some of Western Australia.

  • Once again just an amazing tour. It was a bit day but fantastic. Once again the guides are great and informative, food was great. The sights and experience will stay with us forever.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Chrissy our guide was wonderful. It is a long day but everything ran to schedule and was impressed with how the amount of kilometres, rough roads and organsing people worked so seamlessly.
