What to Expect

Complete with nearly three hours of flight time and plenty of natural and historical beauty to see, this Windjana Explorer day tour is the ultimate adventure.

 

Fly over the spectacular pindan cliffs and turquoise waters of Roebuck Bay before you head out and over the vast mangroves and wetlands of Roebuck Plains.

 

From here, take a look down at the Fitzroy River as you approach the Napier Range, mostly made from heavily eroded limestone, or karst, with the ridges composed of an ancient Devonian reef system.

 

On arrival at Windjana airstrip, meet your local guide and jump aboard your air-conditioned 4WD tour bus.

 

You'll then get to enjoy a walking tour through Windjana Gorge, where you'll learn about the spiritual significance of the gorge and closely observe freshwater crocodiles in their natural habitat.

 

After lunch served beneath the shady bloodwood trees, explore the 750m long Tunnel Creek that runs beneath the 350-million-year-old Devonian Reef System. You'll also get the chance to learn about the Bunuba people and hear the story of Jandamarra, the Aboriginal Warrior who hid out in the tunnel and led the Bunuba resistance against the oppression of the local Aboriginal people during the late 1800's. A trip to the historic ruins of Lillimooloora Police Station is also on the cards for you, which follows a stunning afternoon flight back to Broome.

 

All this adventuring will leave you with an appetite, so enjoy morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea - all inclusive in your ticket price,

For your convenience, it is advisable to wear comfortable walking shoes at Windjana Gorge as the track is mostly drift sand.

The Tunnel Creek tour is a memorable experience and the 750m tunnel is entered over some large rocks requiring a reasonable level of fitness.

Once inside, you will negotiate a series of sand bottomed pools of variable depth.

Strap sandals, reef shoes or sneakers with socks are recommended.

It is suggested that you wear your swimsuit/bathers for the Tunnel walk – however you can wear an old shirt and shorts. Head torches are supplied for your tour.

If you plan to carry your camera through Tunnel Creek, a suitable carrying bag is advisable as protection against potential water damage.

While The Supplier provides water throughout the tour, they do recommend bringing your own water bottle to ensure you are kept well hydrated in the extreme Kimberley heat.
