Departs Broome: Mon 7.00am Returns: 10.00pm (approx.)
A day experiencing inland Kimberley. Three of the Kimberley’s well known icons, the Prison Boab Tree, Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek leave you with a great insight into this fascinating part of outback Australia.
We set off on our journey travelling East from Broome into the Kimberley region. Heading over the Willare Bridge, crossing the mighty Fitzroy River for our morning tea break. From here we stop at one of the Kimberley’s most famous landmarks the massive ancient Boab Prison Tree, once used to house convicts. Whilst here view Myalls Bore.
Heading East through the Kimberley Cattle country we continue along the famous “Gibb River Road” arriving at Windjana Gorge for a scrumptious picnic lunch. Regarded as a classic world geological feature, the gorge is also a renowned freshwater crocodile spotting site. Keep an eye out for wildlife hiding in the Lennard River that runs through Windjana Gorge where the limestone walls rise more than 100 metres and is home to fossils of shells and sea creatures.
Afterwards, head to Tunnel Creek, a 750 metre long flooded cavern. On this great adventure walk, wade through knee to thigh high water and hear the story of Jandamarra. The tunnel features many beautiful formations including stalactites and stalagmites, and is also home to a variety of bats, olive pythons and freshwater crocodiles. Enjoy a swim at the end of the tunnel in a waterhole before heading back to afternoon tea and then onwards back to Broome into the sunset. Time to stop en route for dinner (own expense), with an expected arrival time back in to Broome at approximately 10:00pm.
