AAT Kings Wonders of the Kimberley 2024

Breadcrumb
Tour summary and feature with map

The Top End of Australia, from Western Australia to the Northern Territory, was made for postcards. The yawning gorges, mirror-like waterholes, immense rock formations, wild national parks… All wrapped in millennia strong First Nations culture that guides any tour through the region. From Broome to Darwin, things are steamy most of the time. Thankfully, there are Kimberley rock pools and clifftop waterholes to cool off in, whether at Emma Gorge or the Ord River.

ITINERARY
Sunset on Cable Beach near Broome

You’re about to spend the next 10 days with a group of similarly minded adventure-seekers who will likely become best friends before you even leave tonight’s dinner venue. Break the ice over a few cool drinks and a suitably dazzling Broome sunset.

Staying in:

  • Cable Beach Club Resort (1 night)

Return to Top

Broome Cable Beach

Multicultural Broome became a base for fortune-seekers the world over during its ‘pearl rush’. The pristine waters here grow great oysters, and the resulting pearls are prized by lovers of all things that gleam. Your free day here is one of decisions. We wouldn’t blame you for simply enjoying Broome’s tropical climes, strolling along 22-kilometre Cable Beach, discovering colourful Chinatown then following locals to the sand, or a beachside bar, to salute the end of a spectacular day in WA.

Staying in:

  • Cable Beach Club Resort (1 night)

Return to Top

View of Geikie Gorge

Preserved for 125 million years in the reef rock at Gantheaume Point are the imprints of long-extinct dinosaurs. Remarkably, the Broome coast has become one of the most significant paleontological sites in the world. Glimpse their stomping ground before venturing toward Fitzroy Crossing.

Staying in:

  • Fitzroy River Lodge (1 night)

Return to Top

Road to Fitzroy Crossing

Visit the spectacular Mimbi Caves with an Indigenous guide to observe the limestone formations and crystal-clear freshwater pools that remain from a 350-million-year-old Devonian Great Barrier Reef. Take a deep dive into First Nations culture, discovering ancient rock paintings and Dreamtime stories. More Aboriginal history awaits at a local art gallery.

Staying in:

  • Kimberley Hotel (1 night)

Return to Top

First Nations Experience at Argyle Diamond Mine

The Argyle Diamond Mine was once the world’s largest producer of rare pink diamonds. While operations have ceased, you can still visit. Your First Nations guide will explain the Aboriginal significance. The Gibb River Road is the stuff road trip legends are made of. You’ll see why, your route to El Questro Wilderness Park covering a few kilometres of the epic expanse.

Staying in:

  • Emma Gorge Resort, Tented Cabin with private facilities (1 night)

Return to Top

Road to Emma Gorge

The best way to wake up? With the sun streaming through your tent. The Kimberley’s sounds follow you across the mighty Pentecost River, a mecca for those who love a spot of barramundi fishing. Arriving at Chamberlain Gorge, your cruise chariot awaits. Jump aboard to feel very small indeed, your boat dwarfed by soaring 65-metre escarpments. When it’s time to cool down, take a dip in the resort pool or at a waterhole within Emma Gorge.

Staying in:

  • Emma Gorge Resort, Tented Cabin with private facilities (1 night)

Return to Top

Australian Fresh Water Crocodile

Discover how Kununurra’s Hoochery Distillery makes its lip-smacking rums and whiskys. Perhaps try a tasting paddle to get your heart started, and later sit down to morning tea. Kununurra only exists because of the Ord River Irrigation Scheme. Farming pioneers came here to establish vast cattle stations, the life of one family is chronicled at the Durack Homestead Museum, which you’ll visit before enjoying sunset while cruising the Ord River.

Staying in:

  • The Kimberley Grande (1 night)

Return to Top

Aerial View of Purnululu National Park

How active and adventurous do you want today to be? Rise early for a bird’s-eye view of the beehive-like Bungle Bungles on a scenic flight, or stay grounded on a 4WD tour through the national park. Otherwise lace up your walking shoes and wander with your Travel Director through Mirima National Park, known as the ‘mini-Bungles’ for its rocky resemblance.

Staying in:

  • The Kimberley Grande (1 night)

Return to Top

Outback Australia - Northern Territory

Say goodbye to WA and hello to the NT, your introduction to the state the vast pastoral lands that characterise the outback here. Locals come with plenty of country swagger, as you’ll discover when you meet the horseman and award-winning musician Tom Curtain and his wife Annabel at this Be My Guest experience. After the songs and entertainment your special evening of dining under the stars on their property begins.

Staying in:

  • Contour Hotel Katherine (1 night)

Return to Top

View of Katherine Gorge

Nature reigns supreme at Nitmiluk National Park. This is Jawoyn land, and a place where you’ll feel your spirit soar. Particularly when you’re cruising through dramatic Nitmiluk Gorge, your boat the only sound in this enormous chasm. The balmy Darwin climate sets the pace for your final city tour: relaxed. Discover the city’s architecture and learn about the events that have shaped life. Gather this evening for a Farewell Dinner and exchange email addresses with your new friends.

Staying in:

  • Vibe Hotel Darwin Waterfront (1 night)

Return to Top

East Point Sunset in Darwin

Eleven days. Countless adventures. A bunch of new friends. And a renewed appreciation for the wild side of Australia. What a journey.
