Itinerary:

Day 1: Broome to Windjana Gorge

Broome, Western Australia is a laid-back and beautiful coastal town. Your trip will depart there, but before you know it you'll be deep into the wild Australian west. After a bit of driving, you will arrive at the Fitzroy River, then move off-road towards the Napier Range. While here, you will get to experience a guided walk through Tunnel Creek, which is an extensive underground cave system that extends a whopping 750 metres! You're sure to be tired after all that walking around, so head to camp for some dinner and a good sleep.


Total driving time: Approximately 5 hours. Total walking distance: Approximately 3 km (including walking through water in Tunnel Creek).


Accommodation

  • Camping (with facilities) (1 Night)

 

Day 2: Bell Gorge
Today, you will wake up and head to Windjana Gorge, which was once an underwater reef about 350 million years ago. The gorge becomes an active river during wet season, but remains a series of ponds and billabongs during the dry season. You will have a while to explore the gorge, maybe spotting some crocodiles along the way. There will be many more gorges to see on this trip, including Bell Gorge, which is home to a stunning cascade of water that results from the previous wet season's rainfall. The remainder of the day will include free time to swim in the gorge's large plunge pool before you make your way to your campsite along the Gibb River Road.
 

Total driving time: 4.5 hours. Total walking distance is approximately 4 -6 km including walking through water in Tunnel Creek
