Untamed Kimberley
from $6860
Duration: 11 Days
Connect with the natural icons of north-western Australia on this outback encounter tracing epic landscapes from tropical Darwin to Cable Beach in Broome - a journey filled with Trafalgar Highlights and pinch-me moments.
Day 1
Arrive Darwin
Indulge your inner adventurer as you prepare to embark on an epic road trip across north-western Australia, starting in cosmopolitan Darwin (flights to arrive prior to 2pm). Take an afternoon tour of the city, then enjoy a Welcome Reception and Regional Dinner with your Travel Director and fellow travellers at a waterfront restaurant.
Day 2
Darwin - Katherine
We journey south into the interior, along Stuart Highway. Our first stop is at Adelaide River's poignant War Cemetery, before we continue via Katherine to Nitmiluk National Park. Take a moment to connect with your soul-stirring surrounds as you embark on a tranquil cruise along the Katherine Gorge. You'll learn about the history and culture of the Jawoyn people, the traditional owners of this wilderness area. Then, 'Dive into Culture' when you meet Tom Curtain who will share the inner workings of life on a cattle station during his insightful and entertaining show at the Katherine Outback Experience.
Day 3
Katherine - Kununurra (2 Nights)
The outback landscape transforms dramatically as you journey across vast pastoral leases and Aboriginal homelands into Western Australia. Stop at the historic Durack Homestead, which was built in 1895 and became one of the most famous social gathering places of East Kimberley. Later, cruise along the Ord River, which provides sanctuary for an abundance of native fish, birds and marsupials. Witness a magical sunset over the water before your arrival in Kununurra.
Day 4
Kununurra Free Time
A full free day to encounter Kununurra on your terms. Consider an Optional Experience early-morning scenic flight over the beehive-shaped towers of the Bungle Bungle Range, or embark on a full-day 4WD tour of the Bungle Bungles. After time at leisure, 'Connect with Locals' over a privately hosted Be My Guest dinner in the heart of Kununurra's sandalwood plantations, featuring locally grown produce.
Day 5
Kununurra - Emma Gorge (2 Nights)
The spicy flavours of local rum take centre stage this morning as we embark on a guided tour of an Ord River distillery with a 'Local Specialist'. Then, it's on to Gibb River Road where we'll spend the next two nights in one of Trafalgar's 'Stays with Stories' - Emma Gorge Resort. Settle in to your safari-style tented cabin nestled at the foot of the red-hued Cockburn Ranges in the El Questro Wilderness Park.
Day 6
El Questro Sightseeing
The sounds of Corellas and Kookaburras kick-start your morning as you enjoy a hearty breakfast at your bush lodgings. We embark on a full-day encounter with the natural splendour of El Questro, which begins on a cruise with a 'Local Specialist' on Chamberlain Gorge, an extensive waterhole fringed by tropical vegetation and soaring escarpment. Spend the afternoon at leisure. Cool off in the pool, relax with a good book on your cabin's veranda, or join your Travel Director for a hike to Emma Gorge, followed by a dip in its crystal-clear waterhole.
Day 7
Emma Gorge - Halls Creek
Join a 'Local Specialist' Aboriginal guide for a tour of the Argyle Diamond Mine, the world's largest source of coloured diamonds. Then, continue south to the historic town of Halls Creek.
Day 8
Halls Creek - Fitzroy Crossing
We travel to the remote township of Fitzroy Crossing this morning, stopping en route to visit the Mangkaja Art Gallery. Our visit will 'Make a Difference' to the centre's efforts to promote and support local indigenous artists. This afternoon, cruise with a 'Local Specialist' through magnificent Geikie Gorge, keeping a keen eye out for freshwater crocodiles, fruit-bats and wallabies as the 30-metre walls of the gorge tower above you.
Day 9
Fitzroy Crossing - Broome (2 Nights)
Spectacular landscapes provide a beautiful backdrop for our drive to the former pearling outpost of Broome. Enjoy a town tour with your Travel Director, which includes a visit to the Japanese Cemetery and nearby Gantheaume Point. Admire the rugged red cliffs rising in stark contrast to the surrounding cobalt blue waters, then relax with a drink while the sun sets over the Indian Ocean.
Day 10
Broome Free Time
Indulge in some free time today to explore this tropical hideaway. Take a leisurely stroll along Cable Beach and cool off in its refreshing waters, or wander through Chinatown and shop for pearls. Your journey through north-western Australia almost at its end, join your fellow travellers for a Farewell Dinner tonight.
