1) Full Day Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Creek Adventure (Depart Monday,Wednesday,Friday)
Departing Broome, travel through a remote and beautiful landscape while your guide shares stories of local history, people and the environment.
Enjoy a morning tea break at Willare Roadhouse on the mighty Fitzroy River and visit Myalls Bore and the notorious Derby 'Boab Prison Tree', a relic of some cultural sensitivity due to its use as a prison for local Aboriginals during the era of Kimberley pioneers.
Join the Gibb River Road and travel towards the picturesque Napier Range. Once a Devonian reef, these mountains are over 350million 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 Windjana Gorge.
Beneath gorge walls rising 90 metres, search for freshwater crocodiles, local birdlife and indigenous bush tucker. After a picnic lunch, the afternoon is spent exploring Tunnel Creek, a 750-metre cave system in which you discover secret caves and subterranean wildlife. Learn about the legend of Jandamarra, an Aboriginal freedom fighter who used the tunnel as a hide-out in the late 1800's. A refreshing swim in an idyllic waterhole is a highlight of the day.
As sunset approaches, visit the historical ruins of Lillimooloora Station to appreciate what life would have been like during early white settlement in the area. There is time for an optional dinner (own expense) enroute back to Broome.Tour concludes at approximately10:00pm.
Note: - Tunnel Creek involves some climbing over rocks and wading through water by torchlight, so a reasonable level of mobility is necessary to participate. - Travellers should also allow AUD50.00 per person if they are interested in joining an Indigenous Bunuba Elder for special local insight on the walk through Tunnel Creek.
2) Full Day Cape Leveque Adventure 4WD (Depart Daily except Saturday)
The Dampier Peninsula is a delight for travellers seeking a real Kimberley experience that is culturally rewarding in a beautiful environment. Journey up the Cape Leveque Road and learn about the area's fascinating place in Australia's history.
Enjoy morning tea in the Beagle Bay Aboriginal Community, home to the Sacred Heart Church and its glimmering pearl shell altar. Then travel north to the One Arm Point Community and view the impressive Buccaneer Archipelago, witnessing the huge tidal flows of the Kimberley, the largest in the southern hemisphere.
The Community's own aquaculture hatchery, complete with reef fish and trochus shell, is perched right on the tip of One Arm Point and well worth a visit. Returning south reach Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm. The only working pearl farm open to the public, Cygnet Bay offers an introduction to the history and cultivation of the world's finest pearls whilst enjoying a picnic lunch. Across the peninsula discover Cape Leveque (locally known as Kooljaman).
