Temperatures can be extreme i.e. very high during summer days and very cold during winter nights.

Itinerary
Day 1 – Broome to Windjana Gorge

Departing Broome we make our first stop atWillareBridgeat theFitzroyRiver(seasonal). From here we hit the outback and leave the open road behind as we head for theOscarRangeand on to Tunnel Creek, where a 750m tunnel passes under theNapierRange. The area has a rich bushranger history – join a local Bunuba Indigenous Guide for a walk through Tunnel Creek, learning about culture and Aboriginal traditions. (LD)

Day 2 – Windjana Gorge to Silent Grove

It might be hard to imagine nowadays, but Windjana Gorge was once an underwater reef. During the wet season a river flows all the way through it, but during the dry it’s really more a series of ponds and billabongs. We’ll set out on a bit of an explore, hopefully spotting a freshwater crocodile or two, then, after lunch, drive on to Bell Gorge where waterflow from the King Leopold Ranges trickle down cascades to feed a deep plunge pool. After a refreshing afternoon swim it's back to camp. (BLD)

Day 3 – Silent Grove to Manning gorge
We spend the morning exploring Adcock or Galvans gorge before making our way to Mt Barnett Station which will be our camp for this evening. After lunch we have the whole afternoon to explore and enjoy Manning gorge. After stretching your legs on the hike in you will be rewarded with a swim in a large rock pool at the base of
Manning Falls.. (BLD)

Day 4 –Gibb River Road to El Questro Station

Fording rivers and weaving through gorges, travel by 4WD along the wild Gibb River Road – a 600-kilometre stretch that winds right through the heart of the Kimberley. We’ve got a fair bit of ground to cover today, so there is a fair bit of drive time, but we’ll be breaking the journey up with lunch and at a few stop-offs along the way. This journey includes the iconic Pentecost river crossing in our 4WD. How Australian is that.. (BLD)

Day 5 – El Questro

Originally established as an enormous cattle station, El Questro is now a vast wilderness reserve sprawled over more than one million acres. Camping out here, you’ll really feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere Following a soak in Zebedee Springs, enjoy a short trek to either El Questro or Emma Gorge (where there’s a very pretty waterfall). Then it’s another night camped out in El Questro. (BLD)

Day 6 – Bungle Bungle National Park
So long El Questro, hello Bungle Bungles. Today we drive through the rugged landscape of Carr Boyd and the Durack Ranges into Purnululu National Park. This park is home-ground of the Bungle Bungles, a UNESCO World Heritage Site dominated by massive sandstone karsts that rear hundreds of metres above the surrounding grasslands. We arrive at our bush camp in time to sit back and watch the sun set over the Osmond Ranges. (BLD)

Day 7 – Bungle Bungles

Strangely enough given their size, the Bungle Bungles only became known to white Australia in 1983 when they were ‘discovered’ by a film team – who then had to fly over the top by plane to find a route in by land. We know the way in, but you can sign up for a helicopter ride over the site if you wish. At ground level, we’ll go on a walk through Echidna Chasm – a long and narrow ravine banked on either side by 200 metre high rock walls – and enter the massive natural Amphitheatre of Cathedral Gorge. (BLD)

Day 8 – Lake Argyle to Kununurra

Today we leave the Bungle Bungles for Kununurra, the largest town between Broome and Darwin. Tonight’s campsite is on the shores of Lake Argyle. There are no further activities booked for the rest of the day, but an optional sunset cruise out on the lake is highly recommended. (BLD)

Day 9 – Lake Argyle to Katherine Region

Lake Argyle is actually a man-made lake, though you’d never have guessed so from looking at it. For a body of water situated in the centre of the world’s second driest continent, it looks pretty at home. Barramundi, birds and freshwater crocs thrive in these waters, and the islands look like they’ve always been there (they used to be mountains). In the afternoon we push on across the state border into the Northern Territory. (BLD)

Day 10 -Darwin

The final leg of our journey takes us through to Darwin, with stop-offs made en route
at either Katherine Gorge or Edith Falls. (BL)
