We join the Fairfield Leopold Road tracking through a stunning landscape of boab trees and limestone escarpments arriving at Tunnel Creek, a 750-metre cave system carved through the Napier Range, in which we discover stalactites, secret caves and a variety of wildlife on our guided tour. It is here we also hear of the legend of Jandamarra, an Aboriginal freedom fighter who used the tunnel as a hide out in the late 1800’s. Our journey continues to the stunning natural beauty of Windjana Gorge with spectacular cliffs and an opportunity to get up close (but not too close!) with the endemic freshwater crocodile.

After a picnic lunch inside the gorge we hit the Gibb River Road, the legendary track completed in the 1960’s to expedite the movement of cattle from remote pastoral leases. We visit Mowanjum Arts Centre for an insight into the local community of Indigenous artists and learn the story of the local aboriginal spirit, the Wandjina, known by many for it’s spectacular appearance at the Sydney Olympics prior to arriving at the township of historic Derby, sight of some of the highest tidal movements in the world. Our next stop is the famous Boab Prison Tree, believed to be more than 1,500 years old and measuring an incredible 14 metres in diameter, this remarkable tree was once used by early police patrols as a standing point for prisoners as they were walked to Derby. After departing we cross the Fitzroy River returning to Broome for a transfer to your accommodation.
