This morning we’ll travel through the remote and beautiful landscape of the Western Kimberley, learning of local history, people and the environment crossing the Fitzroy River and visiting the famous Prison Boab Tree. We arrive in the township of Derby located on the tidal mud flats on the edge of the King Sound known for having the highest tidal range of any port in Australia prior to beginning our journey on the remote cattle track, the Gibb River Road.

We continue our travels towards the Napier Range, once a Devonian reef these escarpments are over 350 million years old and home to a diverse array of animals and plants. The perfect place to experience the stunning natural beauty of an outback oasis is the 3.5km geological wonder of Windjana Gorge and then exploring Tunnel Creek, a 750-metre cave system carved through the Range, in which we discover stalactites, secret caves and a variety of wildlife. It is here we also learn the legend of Jandamarra, an Aboriginal freedom fighter who used the tunnel as a hide out in the late 1800’s. As the sun sets we journey through the Oscar Ranges and groves of majestic Boab trees before arriving at our comfortable accommodation on the banks of the Fitzroy River.

An early departure takes us via Danggu Geikie Gorge National Park where we explore the magnificent gorge by boat. Nature carved this spectacular 30m deep gorge between the Geikie and Oscar Ranges during the Devonian geological period. The best way to experience the scenery and abundant wildlife of this natural wonder is to join the Geikie Gorge Ranger-guided Cruise. Danggu Geikie Gorge floods during the wet season, with the swirling water leaving its bleached mark on the colourful gorge walls. Though the water retreats during the dry season, permanent water remains to sustain the wide variety of Kimberley wildlife.

we depart Fitzroy Crossing, breaking the journey to the Bungle Bungles with a visit to the gold rush town of Halls Creek. We then depart the main highway to venture into Purnululu National Park by way of the 4WD Spring Creek Track where late afternoon we arrive at the private Bungle Bungles Lodge, our home for the next 2 nights.

We have ample time to explore this extraordinary World Heritage protected Purnululu National Park, the most famous of which, are the Bungle Bungle domes. Rivers created this landscape of unique orange and black striped ‘beehive’ geological formations over a period of 20 million years.
